We just wrapped up an incredible 10-day Medical Mission to the mountains of Kalinga.
Samaritan’s Purse Canada put together an amazing team of doctors, nurses, construction workers and support workers who came and served with us in one of the most remote areas of Kalinga. From March 18-28 we served over 1000 people from 7 villages with medical check-ups, medicines, vitamins and eyeglasses. Most of these villages can only be reached on foot – so we had a lot of exercise over these 10 days.
At the same time as this outreach, I had my best friend from Canada visiting with her 14-year old daughter. Becky and Emma Wiebe joined right in and were an amazing addition to the team. From fitting eyeglasses to giving lice-shampoo spas for the kids – they did it all!
The wonderful construction crew worked tirelessly on renovations for the new Bugnay clinic. They put up a ceiling throughout almost the whole building. Ken, Ken, Wade, Rick and Matt (the construction guys!) stayed behind in Bugnay while the rest of the team hiked into the mountains. I hear that it looks wonderful though and I can’t wait to see it next month!
What an amazing experience! Thank you to everyone who gave, donated, prayed and came. I hope there will be many more teams to come.
