On Monday the 10-person medical team from Trinity Presbyterian of Harrisburg, PA completed their first full day of work in Honduras.
The team put on an amazing all-day medical clinic in the poor community of Armenia Bonito. They treated 74 patients in all. The clinic ushered in the first dentist to ever serve with our ministry. With a lawn chair and cinderblocks serving as his dental chair Dr. Wade pulled teeth on 20 patients. The team also had a radiologist that brought a portable ultrasound and treated 16 patients. Included in some of Dr. Greg’s ultrasound patients were many pregnant moms looking at their babies for the first time, a woman with a severe abscess on a breast and the checking of gal bladders, kidneys and thyroids.
The group also did some amazing work outside of the medical clinic. They helped with a little construction work on our ministry center and a house for a poor family. They also played with kids all day and then helped out at our weekly English class.
