“I will bless the Lord who guides me; even at night my heart instructs me. I will not be shaken, for He is right beside me.” 
Medical Team. As we loaded the bus with medical supplies, vitamins and protein powder, we were equipped with the reminder that “the Lord is right beside us.” We left Riverside School around 9am and arrived at our medical camp site soon after.  We had the privelage of working with skilled physicians as well as local nurses and nursing students.
Today, we saw a total of 61 patients. Although our patient load was small, the impact was huge because today, for the first time, we were able to give out Bibles translated in Telugu.  Bibles were only given to those who asked, or to those whom upon being asked if they wanted a Bible replied “Yes”.
Although we were met with some opposition regarding giving out Bibles, there was such gratitude and thankfulness by those who received them. Many patients allowed us to pray for them and even though they did not understand exactly what we were praying, they showed a lot of gratitude and were appreciative.
What an honor and a privilege to be able to not only provide our patients with medical care but also, and more importantly, the Word of God in their own language. Please continue to pray for more opportunities to share the love of Jesus Christ as we provide medical care to those we serve.

Teacher Training. This year, the Lord called us and challenged us to try something new. For the past few years, we have been conducting Vacation Bible School for children in local villages with the intent of spreading the gospel to youth. The kids look forward to the exciting, action-packed day every year! Unfortunately, we can only provide this once in a year. We want the youth of this community to have the same joy and excitement when they come to Sunday School every week.

Rather than conducting a week long program for children, we chose to conduct a training for 25 Sunday School teachers from surrounding church communities. We equipped them with knowledge of the foundations of faith, strategies for teaching, and tools to help them develop their personal relationship with the Lord.

The 3-day training was highly successful for our first time. The teachers left feeling inspired and motivated to make the gospel come alive in their own churches. We look forward to seeing this program continue in the future
