This week we kicked off our short-term summer mission teams season. We are hosting our first two churches of the 10 teams this summer. We are hosting Faith Presbyterian Church of Ballentine, SC and Naperville Presbyterian Church of Naperville, IL.
On Monday the teams were divided between helping us in Las Delicias, Armenia Bonito and our home for teenage moms (Puerta de Esperanza). The teams did construction on two sites, played soccer with kids and built strong relationships nationals.
In the medical clinic the Faith team had two dentists extract teeth all day. In a culture that can’t afford dental care, teeth extractions are a great benefit. Sixteen patients received this precious service.
These 23 short-term missionaries are adding great value to our long-term ministry. We greatly appreciate their sacrifice and hard work.
