Snapshots from the January Dominican Republic Ministry Team

by David Kennedy

During the past two weeks, The Chapel medical team that was serving in the Dominican Republic treated 1,043 people at village clinics for medical problems and eyeglasses. We also treated 30 people with dental problems (mostly extractions).  There were 89 reported decisions to accept Christ as personal Savior including one of our team members, and we baptized seven individuals!  In addition, our surgical team performed 25 surgeries in our first time efforts. There were no complications although our surgeons were stretched in their abilities working in different situations than they do in the States.  We are thanking God for His provision and guidance in all things. The children’s ministry served hundreds of children showing the love of Christ to them.  “Faithful is He who calls you, Who will also do it” (I Thessalonians 5:24).
