Medical care is out of reach for many people in our community for financial and transportation reasons among others. A local place administered by trusted neighbors would provide facilities for volunteer doctors and other health professionals to care for those in need. The floor plan pictured below is a dream that we are slowly working towards.
In September 2005 we hosted a volunteer medical mission team from 1st Baptist Church, Murfreesboro, TN. The team is returning in October 2006. During the one day clinic in 2005, the team treated 30 patients, providing 29 of them with 6 months supply of their maintenance drug prescriptions from supplies of donated medications brought with them.
Our hope is to host such clinics regularly and such a building would be a great help in this work.
See our "Construction Chronicle" for updates on our progress and watch for "Mission Opportunities" to participate in this dream becoming a reality.
