Images from Medical Clinics in Chicholom

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

Besides being able to post some pictures that I’m taking off of various folks’ facebook, we really haven’t gotten much by word or text when it comes to updates.  Hopefully as the Medical/Physical Therapy team returns to the U.S., we will get more insight and stories from them.

In fact, if you know a person on the team at all, be sure to ask them intentionally about their trip, and what they saw God do, and how He used them and changed them on this trip.  And be sure to be ready to listen through their answers.  It is very critical that folks coming back from life changing trips like this have an audience with friends and family to share how the mission impacted them and others.

In the meantime, here are some pictures from medical clinics in Chicholom today and yesterday:


Some sort of presentation of or for the team in Chicholom. Likely a "thank you for coming in the name of Christ" with a returned "thank you for welcoming us in the name of Christ."

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.
