Staying at NVM this week is a medical mission team led by Gary and Sylvia Thacker from Mercy Ships. This is a mighty team of 12 from California, Massachusetts, Georgia, Connecticut and Texas. They are going to an IDP camp near Port-au-Prince to conduct a medical clinic. Their mission is to bring hope and healing to the forgotten poor.
On day one of the clinic they saw 153 patients and on day two, 143. They have three days to go. They are seeing mostly normal medical problems including vitamin deficiency, pregnancies, abscesses and malaria.
This team is indeed ministering to those in need. Please be praying for them over the next three days as they continue their mission in Haiti. They are the hands and feet of Jesus reaching out to those in need for us all.
