After three years of trying to do a medical clinic in La Barrenquilla we finally made it. For two days Lakeside brought medical help to this slum area in Guatemala City. They came with suitcases full of medicine and people full of love for Guatemala. What an amazing job they do at organizing a medical clinic. For the last few days we worked in Jocotillo doing a medical clinic there and also a day with the people. I was overwhelmed as I watched the care and love they poured out on the people in these areas. The last day in Jocotillo they played games with the kids, painted fingernails, fixed hair, face painted, and taught the women how to sew. I couldn’t stop my tears as I watched little girls getting their hair brushed and braided for maybe the first time in their lives. I watched in awe as women sewed and were so proud of their work. I watched as the doctors were patient in answering questions from people who missed the cline but came for this day. My heart was full as I watched Jesus being shown in every touch, every smile, every word. This wonderful team came equipped to help with their clinic but even more importantly they came equipped to share Christ in a very real way! Thank you Lakeside as you brought medicine to heal pain and the gospel to heal hearts! We love you!
