Dispatches: Saturday, March 17
Crowds gather outside the Eric Memorial Tent to attend another day of medical clinics. The mission house and God truck are in the background.
Dr. Steve and Co. treated at least twice as many people on Day 2 of the medical clinic — probably 150 or more. They administered more vaccines, and saw scores of pregnant women and babies, a 6-year-old with pneumonia, and children with the usual skin problems. Everyone left the EMT with crackers to eat and water to drink thanks to a financial gift from an anonymous donor in Steve, Pastor Don, Eileen and Lisa's church in Canon City, CO, USA. The medical team also gave out baby blankets and clothing.
The seminary conference ended with a review of the first day’s teachings and words of encouragement from our team to the pastors and church leaders attending. “When God selected you as pastors you were not finished,” Miguel told them. “You need to learn more, more, more.”
Jordan met individually with each pastor to discuss their walks and the role of the seminary. Jordan works with Miguel to prepare the monthly seminary teachings. All of those in attendance expressed appreciation. They also were fed for two days.
Rain continued for the third day in Malasi, making hard work even more difficult. What God is doing continues to face opposition and the prayers of His people are necessary to be a blessing here.
