Medical Missions Team’s Final Days in Guatemala

2018 | by Josiah | Category: Field Updates,Global,Prayer,Rabinal Achi,Trips

The 2018 Guatemala Medical Mission trip has come to an end.  Not before the team spent a couple more long, hard-working days since the last update.  Thursday, May 30th, the team had made the short, steep drive to Chicholom, the views were stunning. They did the last clinic setup for this trip since the facility holding all the supplies could be locked.

Sophia, a teenager who was here last year, once again had a wonderful time playing with the children. Some of the children even remembered her name.

On Friday, the team’s last clinic was a very busy half day. They had to say good-bye to their Achi friends that they served with before parting ways.  Through slow traffic the DSC team headed to Antigua where they spent the following day debriefing, resting, and being tourists.

Thank you so much for your prayers. They have had safe travel and great success working even in difficult conditions. After a long day of travel, the team arrived back in Albuquerque Sunday afternoon. Please pray for them as they try to catch up on rest and sleep after long hard days and most of them have responsibilities to get back to tomorrow. Pray for the people that were served that they felt God’s love. For those who don’t know the Lord that they come to a saving faith. For those who saw the team for medical reasons that they were of assistance to them.
