The excessive heat didn’t slow down our short-term mission team from Rincon Mountain Presbyterian Church of Tucson, AZ. But, in even better news, nobody got hurt on Tuesday. The group from Rincon started the day with a little caution, a better appreciation for spiritual warfare and hearts of servants.
The morning began with construction on two work sites. At our ministry center some of the crew worked on a wall to divide the property. The other group started building the walls on a new house for the Sandoval family. This family consists of a single mom with three kids.
Throughout the day the team hosted a medical clinic that treated 30 people. They saw lots of interesting cases and demonstrated loads of mercy. Towards the end of the day an eight-year-old boy was carried in who had just sliced his big toe with a machete. The visiting missionaries cleaned the toe, stitched it and likely saved it. A thankful dad carried his smiling boy home.
In the afternoon the group put on a great Kid’s Club. They told the story of Joseph to a group of 30 captivated kids. After the story the kids were treated to three age appropriate crafts that shared the gospel through various colors.
In the evening the team was introduced to Honduran baleadas at a local restaurant.
A great day indeed.
