This week is going to be a busy week for me (Krista). Monday through Wednesday, I will be doing all the last minute work for the upcoming short term mission trip as well as cleaning up other projects in the office. This short term team will be my first medical team and I am super excited to lead five days of medical clinics with the church in Ibarra and the Stringer family.
On Thursday, we will leave for Ibarra (about a 2.5 hour drive) and start putting plans into motion. Very early Saturday morning, the medical team will be arriving from Westerville Ohio and a few other places in the USA. Three doctors, several nurses, students and other non medical professionals will be working to reach the people of Ibarra for Christ through these medical clinics. We have no idea what God has in store for us, but we have faith that God is going to work in amazing ways this next week.
Please be in prayer that the team can be effective instruments of Christ’s love. Pray that we can come up along the missionaries and pastoral family who are serving in the city and be a blessing and encouragement to them. Pray for discernment in our medical team and energy when it is of short supply.
