Dear Hope’s In community,
Concrete day was a success! All six houses have a solid concrete floor that will protect from bacteria build up, prevent the Treasures from breathing in harmful methane gasses that come off the ground, and provide a much cleaner environment.
In the afternoon we did the Prayer Walk project. All our volunteers entered into different families homes to hear their stories, listen to their challenges and dreams. We also prayed for the families and were eager to encourage everyone we met. One volunteer said started her prayer so beautifully: “Dear God, thank you for bringing us to this woman’s door.”
Amongst these exciting projects we have had our medical clinic running all week. Below one of our volunteers shares about her experience:
“This is my second year here and I am glad to have the opportunity to come back and serve the Treasures. I have been volunteering in the medical clinic every day seeing members of the community and learning a lot in the process. There have been problems ranging from a slight cough to the doctors needing to whip out the scalpel and do some minor surgery. Every single person we have seen has been extremely grateful and it gives perspective to how blessed we are to have such easy access to healthcare in the states. Every member of our team has worked hard to help improve the health of the Treasures. God has used us as His hands this week in serving the garbage dump community. I look forward to the rest of the week.”

These opportunities and moments are such blessings to our team. We are going to bed very grateful tonight.
