This past Sunday we celebrated the launch of St. Vincent’s. If you didn’t get to attend and you haven’t seen the photos taken by our great photography servants, check them out here.
But I don’t want to miss the chance to celebrate one other thing that occurred this weekend — our latest Medical Clinic, at The 930.
Together we served 200 neighbors, 80% of whom walked to the clinic. We preached the gospel, showed hospitality, and we provided a meal as well as free over-the-counter medicine, clothing and reading glasses. 155 of these guests asked that we contact them or pray for them. Praise God for these open doors.
This medical clinic marked the first time that we offered free dental exams, cleaning and tooth extractions.12 cleanings. Our volunteer dental workers provided:
- 8 x-rays
- 7 extractions
Most of us know how expensive dental care can be, and how much pain you can feel when you have a tooth that needs to come out. I’m so thankful for these dentists and assistants who provided their services for free.
Finally, here are couple comments from guests that particularly blessed me:
“You ministered to my spirit, thank you.” – from a woman in a local recovery program.
“I adore all that this is…” referring to Sojourn.
Thank you, Sojourn. Thanks to the 200 of you who served with us, and all who donated items and passed out flyers throughout Smoketown, Germantown and Shelby Park. I long to see more in the future here, just as I long to see medical clinics in New Albany, J-Town and East Louisville. The Great Physician is calling us to bring more healing to more people, in more places.
