Medical Team
June 2009

We were privileged to work with a fine group of people from Grace Assembly of God in New Whiteland, Indiana. Tom and Ann Davis and Stacy and Jeanine Johnson were the group leaders for the medical team. National Pastors Alexis and Patti Sarmiento were so pleased to see so many people from the church and surrounding neighborhood receive medical, dental, and eye care. During the week over 860 people passed through the clinic. Spiritual counseling ministered to many needs in prayer and 165 people received Jesus as their personal Savior. We were so happy to have Ray and Barbara Schulz from Marion, Indiana on the team.
It was unique to see how many changes have taken place in the neighborhood. We began the work with Alexis and Patti nearly 20 years ago when there was no running water, electricity and no building except a small shack with a tin roof and dirt floor. Now there is a feeding program for over 300 children daily, a fully functioning Latin America ChildCare School and a church facility with a nice kitchen with clean water, electricity and a paved street. We are thankful to the Lord for His Help and His Blessing.
