The Registration Table: Before the patients could enter for a check-up, their names and other first-hand information had to be written down on sheets of paper, as well as on the major list. Christin was assigned here, as well as my sister Hannah, and Zarah, our pastor's daughter.

The Vital Signs Booth: Several caregivers and nurses-to-be were assigned to this area. Their job was to get the blood pressure, pulse rate, temperature, weight, and other vital information of the patient and write them on the patient's sheet for the doctor's reference.

The Waiting Room: Here, the patients had a chance to talk to the counselors (some of our church's members) while waiting to be called.

The Doctors' Area: This was where all the doctors (there were six of them) saw to the needs of the patients. My sister Damaris and I were assigned here as runners. It was our duty to see to the needs of the doctors and to escort the patients to the Pharmacy.

Pharmacy: Here, the nurses and other nurses-to-be were assigned to give the prescribed medicines to the patients. [The little boy in the middle of the picture is my brother, Jotham. He was assigned to give out the foot wash. :)]

Snack Table: In this area, snacks and tracts were handed out to the patients before they left the church. Some of them went back to the waiting area to talk to the counselors.

Prayer Request: Medical Mission


On Sunday, our church will be having a Medical Mission. Throughout the past few weeks, the Missions Committee of our church has been preparing for this big event. We have been contacting doctors and nurses, gathering medicines, planning, and praying. And now, the big day is near.
Please pray for us, especially on Sunday, that we'll be able to minister to the people who will be arriving, and that we'll also be able to share to them about Jesus.

Thanks, and God bless!

Across the Street, Around the World

THE MISSION

There's a call going out
Across the land in ev'ry nation,
A call to all who swear allegiance
To the cross of Christ;
A call to true humility,
To live our lives responsibly,
To deepen our devotion
To the cross, at any price.

Let us then be sober,
Moving only in the Spirit
As aliens and strangers
In a hostile foreign land;
The message we're proclaiming
Is repentance and forgiveness,
The offer of salvation
To the dying race of man.

Chorus:
To love the Lord our God
Is the heartbeat of our mission,
The spring from which
Our service overflows.
Across the street or around the world,
The mission's still the same,
Proclaim and live the truth
In Jesus' name.

As a candle is consumed
By the passion of the flame,
Spilling light unsparingly
Throughout a darkened room;
Let us burn to know Him deeper
Then our service flaming bright
Will radiate His passions
And blaze with holy light.
November is Missions Month in our church. But really, every day should be seen as a chance to share the gospel to a friend or loved one. Whether they may be the next-door-neighbors across the street, or a relative from across the sea, they need to hear about the Love of a Saviour. Why not take the time to talk to them or even sit down and pray for them? There's a world full of people who may have never heard of Jesus.

"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
Matthew 28:19, 20
