Achi May 2012 Medical Update – Medical Clinics in Tempisque

2012 | by Clint | Category: Field Updates,Global,Rabinal Achi,Trips

The Pastors’ Conference Team (Greg and Tim) have returned with very positive reports of God’s faithfulness to teach and unite everyone this past weekend in the mountains of central Guatemala.  Please pray for Tim as he feels a bit under the weather after returning.

Our team is still having trouble finding consistent internet service in order to email pictures and reports, so I’ve resorted to watching Hector H’s facebook profile for updated pictures, as he is faithfully posting images each day of the trip. Hector is a faithful Achi brother that DSC has supported for several years now in his ministry to reach and disciple young Achi adults.   He also has a heart for uniting pastors and churches across denominations, and most recently, Community Health Evangelism efforts among his own people.

Here are some images from Hector’s facebook page from DSC’s Medical team in action Tuesday, May 29th.
