With a grateful heart that I share the feelings with you on our last day of medical mission. Thank all of you for supporting the team and working with us through prayers.
Morning, we had a choir presentation with the songs “What a friend we have in Jesus” & “I know who holds tomorrow” in the service. Thanks to our dearest friend, Jesus, who always encourages us , who is completely trustworthy and dependable, and no matter what happen, He is still in control. Also, thanks God for working in our team member, Manon, that he had a very powerful and memorable sermon. He preached “Jesus is our redeemer” and many villagers accepted the Jesus Christ as their savior.
We started out the service at 9:00 and closed it out at 11:00. Lots of villagers were already waiting for clinic. Despite this is our last day, we still try our best to carry on with God’s love to the end. I heard that some of villagers watched us with reservation, not knowing what we were here for. Now, they got to know us and felt that we really concern about them. Thanks God, the seeds has been planted. More importantly, let us pray the Lord of the harvest, send out more workers into his harvest field.”
Today we served 244 villagers (Dental 45, Internal Med 70, Acupuncture 47, Pediatric 22, Hair Cut 10) We gave away 50 pairs of eye-glasses. Total we served in Vihead Thom & Baray is 3453 villagers. Praised Lord, Glory to God. Again, deepest appreciation to all team members for your hard work and effort.
On the way back to Phnom Penh, we stopped by the rest area where there are many booths selling “local delicacies” like fried crickets, fried black spiders, and fried scorpions. One of our team members (聰聰), she is small, but very bold and adventurous. She ate one spider with great gusto. “Crispy”& “Crunchy”.
Thanks God, we safely came back to Phnom Penh and had a last gathering dinner, then back to each ones place. At dinner, we expressed our appreciation to those Khmer who helped and involved on this mission. Not only that, we also had a birthday celebration for brother Hanc and brother Grandy. Specially, we thank God for brother Hanc Sing. He joined medical mission from 2007 on till now and help coordinate the operation since then. He is the one who taking up the most responsibility of leading the whole team. We all are very pleased and honored to have him as our medical team leader.
Lastly, we already had a short discussion and planed the date for upcoming medical mission and next year’s mission. The upcoming medical mission will be possibly starting on second week in June. And next year’s medical mission will be 1/5/17-1/16/17. Many express their desire to join again on next year. Please pray for more willing to come and help with God’s love. And pray for each members having a safe return home, and to spread a passion for God’s glory and the needs in Khmer.
