BSUMC mission team ministers in Honduras

Posted

The Broad Street United Methodist Honduras mission team was in Morazon, Honduras, July 22-29.

While there they saw 890 patients in the clinic, referring many patients for eye surgery, emergency transfer for a lady with an ectopic pregnancy and a 2-month-old with severe pneumonia, organizing an evaluation for a 6-year old with congenital heart disease, as well.

The congregation of Broad Street donated reading glasses for the team to take with them. About 260 pairs of glasses were given out at the clinic. Some minor surgeries were done and a host of patients were treated for parasites, nutritional problems, colds, aches and pains and many other problems.

Not all of the volunteers worked in the clinic. Some painted the school at Portillo-Gonzales and refurbished 16 school desks. They held Bible schools for about 500 kids at the sites of five of our water-treatment plants, and presented a program at the Nutrition Center. But mostly, they built relationships and let a lot of people see what Christian love and the hands and feet of Christ look like.

Volunteers who worked this mission trip were Dr. Bill and Jackie Johnson, Andy and Stacy Johnson, J.Y. Elliot, Hayden Meredith, Mindy Freeman, Krista and Sara McKay, Nannette Feeback, Roy Maine, Sherry Miller, Megan and Ashley. Some of these participated at the clinic, lining people up and getting folks in to see the doctor,dispensing glasses and medicine, while others did Bible schools, or painted the school and repaired desks. One even worked as a translator.

The next mission trip to Honduras will be Feb. 10-17, 2018. Those interested in going on this mission trip can contact Broad Street United Methodist Church at 476-5586.
