Today marked the South team’s first day of the clinic. We started the day bright and early at 7:30 am for breakfast at our hotel’s restaurant. We gathered around for worship led by Allison Phillips to sing praises to the Lord and focus ourselves for the day ahead – our word of the day was preparation, and we all were eager to use the tools and skills that God granted us to do great things for the people of Sisian. We read Ephesians 2:10: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” With that in mind, we drove to the church where we had set up our clinic the night before and began seeing patients after the Armenian church service. We treated 93 people for a variety of medical concerns and 102 children with their dental health. With God’s grace and guiding hand we were able to triage, treat, and pray for all the patients throughout the day.
We wrapped up our first day with a delicious dinner at the hotel and are looking forward to tomorrow!
