Mission Trip with Seacoast

Seacoast Church in South Carolina was one of the many awesome churches that helped us to start this ministry. A few months ago they contacted us that they would like to do a mission trip on our mobile unit, Ele.

It was just about that time that we learned of the small town of Cameron, along the coast south of Lake Charles. This area was flattened by Hurricane Rita. The hospital was gone, all medical clinics, post office, etc. We are told that many of these people have not had much if any health care, because living day to day has been more important than driving 30 miles to the nearest rural clinic that sometimes has a provider there.

After making many calls and lots of prayer, we have been able to make arrangements to go for 3 days into this community. We will have 2 full days of clinics and Cooking for Christ from Healing Place Church will cook lunch for the people on those 2 days.

Pictured are the five team members from Seacoast Church: Dr. Bo Machado, Steven, Kelly, Carrie, and Leslie. They left South Carolina at 3:30am Saturday and drove to Baton Rouge arriving Sat. night. The team from Healing Place Church is myself, my husband, Joe, and David and Ann Ziegler. We will do what we can to show these people that they are not forgotten. Jesus loves them.

Please pray for us as we begin this outreach. This is our first “road trip” with Ele. I’ll try to keep you updated as much as possible while we are there. Please leave us a note to let us know that you are praying.
