New clinic site

By: Michelle Balon

It was an early start setting up for our last clinic in Sousa. The tireless work of volunteers unpacked vans of equipment and set up our facility in record time. The people we served in the morning clinic was held outside on a hot sunny day underneath a covered area.

The team assessed and treated 76 people varying in age and illness, each and everyone leaving an imprint on our hearts!

Especially the infants that were held in turn by our medical staff.

Exactly 5 hours later we dismantled the clinic, repacked and reloaded the vans with our luggage and clinic supplies. We said goodbye to our hosts and pastor Rick in Sousa.

The angels were busy keeping us safe on our anxiety inducing van ride through busy towns, coastal highways and rainy jungle lined mountain roads. Driving in DR required in equal amounts nerve, faith, luck and constant horn blowing! We arrived safely in our home for the next several days just before nightfall…. Right on schedule thanks to our fearless leader Jason and his mad cat herding skills.


  1. Love seeing your daily posts. Praying for your team as you treat your next patients. Cat herding???

    1. Sometimes trying to gather the team together at the end of the day is difficult. Everyone still trying to help …. It’s a bit chaotic and quite like trying to herd a bunch of barn cats .

  2. Loved seeing and hearing about this incredible experience. Thank you and hopefully your next ride will be completely enclosed. I was stressed for all of you.
    Praying for rest and rejuvenation. Thank you all for your faithfulness.
