St. Francisville 9.9.06
Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. We had a little break with the holiday, and Ele (mobile clinic) was at the doctor. We will catch up with our clinics, because we have 4 clinics in 10 days!
We were in St. Francisville for our 2nd clinic in this community. We had 7 return visits and 2 new patients scheduled. Our patients for the day turned out to be 17! Why the increase? Because they all brought friends. There is nothing better than word of mouth advertising!
We open our doors for any that do not have insurance of any kind. Every step of the way we love on them. There are always lots of smiles and hugs. One of the ladies we saw for the second time was so excited. She told me that after her visit where she had her medical needs met, and she didn't have to worry about how she was going to afford her meds this month, and then was able to meet with our prayer team. She said the encouragement she received has lifted her spirits so much that she was more active. Joined some activities at the Council on Aging and just felt better overall. She brought 2 friends with her to see us!
After our clinic we were able to relax at a local restraunt and thank God for what we were able to be a part of. Pictured above is our group with our bellies and hearts full.
For all of our volunteers out in Baton Rouge: we have our monthly meeting Sunday Sept. 10th at 4pm in Annex II. We also have Vision Night at 6pm at Healing Place Church Highland Campus where we get to hear the heart of our Pastors Dino and Delynn Rizzo.
