Dr. Carl Galloway, pediatric resident from Arizona, has joined us for a three-week medical internship. He has joined us from Covenant Community Church in Scottsdale, Arizona. Carl will be providing a shot in the arm to our mercy/medical presence here in La Ceiba. He will be living with us and be dividing his time between health clinics in the village and working in the poor public hospital in town.
On Thursday we hosted our weekly medical clinic in Armenia Bonito. With Carl’s help we treated 55 people. We saw lots of flu and infected sores. Carl treated most of the kids and Erin addressed the needs of the adults. Our teammate Sean worked as the pharmacist and Mike checked everyone’s vitals and prayed with and evangelized each person.
On Friday we will be driving 1 ½ hours to Olanchito to scout out the site for a clinic we will be hosting next week to help a national Pastor and his new church.
