From February 6-15, 2012, my dad Lonnie and I are crossing off a bucket list item of doing a medical mission trip together! We will be traveling with a group from the First Church of the Nazarene (Fergus Falls, MN) under Work & Witness to Bleck, Haiti.
Bleck is a very small community in the mountains on the border with the Dominican Republic. While we are there, we will be acting as Physician and Physician Assistant at a small clinic there, while also serving God!
We have been asked to bring several items in order to better serve while we are there; these items include hand sanitizer (there is no clean water in the clinic), prenatal vitamins, basic multivitamins for adults and children, exam gloves, eyeglasses, toothbrushes and toothpaste, basic pain relief (ibuprofen, Tylenol), burn care, Neosporin and other antibiotic ointments, basic first aid items, etc.
Dad and I are hoping to be able to raise at least $250 by the time we leave so we can fill our extra suitcases with plenty of these items to be able to stock the clinic as we minister to our patients.
Any little bit you can contribute helps! Please feel free to contact me with any questions! Donation boxes will also be placed at Phatty Nattie's Group Fitness on S Court St. in Fergus Falls. If a monetary donation is not possible for you at this time, please "donate" your prayers to us and the team we will be traveling with. Thank you!
