Screening Day

The team that arrived on Thursday was able to spend today screening patients for surgery. There were over 250 people who waited all day in the hopes of being a recipient of the upcoming surgeries. The team was able to screen 190 people and were able to more than fill up the surgery schedule with very deserving candidates.

Dr. Moody had an opportunity to share with the 250 people that were waiting to be screened about our purpose for being here. As the room quieted, Dr. Moody shared that while we are Americans, we were not here to represent America. While were are a medical team, we were not here to just provide medical assistance. He emphasized that our real purpose for being here is represent Jesus and his tremendous love to these people.

With that in mind, we hope that you enjoy this blog and are blessed by the good news that we able to share.


  1. I miss being there with you and am praying for you. I look forward to reading more about your great work.

  2. It looks like you are having a fun and successful time. My prayers are with you. Keep up the good work.
