What a month, between family visiting on a mission trip, and the dedication of the new clinic, there are so many memories that will last a lifetime.

I have had another busy month of ministry in San Juan. To start things off, at the beginning of the month, we hosted a team from Roanoke, VA. This team consisted of a construction team, a barrio medical team, 2 orthopedic surgeons, a general surgeon, and a prosthetics team. This was one of my busiest weeks of ministry, but also one I will always be able to look back on and smile. It was a blessing to be able to be a part of this week and watch so many lives be changed. The prosthetics team worked endlessly to provide new legs to 32 people, 25 of them getting a prosthetic for the first time. On Thursday they had “walk day,” and wow, what a fantastic thing to watch.

This past month we hosted a team from Peoria Christian High School; my mom was the team leader! My brother, Quinn, was also on the team, as well as all of his closest friends. My mom led the team with Jason and Kate Miller, family friends of ours. It was an amazing week. The team worked with Jason, and our construction crew, building shelves, painting, and working on the fourth-floor addition at Lucille Rupp school. I enjoyed showing my mom and brother what a week of ministry looks like for me. This is a week I will always remember! We also hosted a barrio team this week, with many people who have come for many years. It was fun for my family to see a different team’s outlook while they were here.

I am so thankful for all the teams that have come down in the last three months. I would like to write about each team, and all that they did during their week of ministry.

This past weekend was the long-anticipated dedication for the Clinica Cristiana de Salud Integral. I feel so blessed to have been able to be a part of this weekend. It is hard to believe this week has come and gone. We have been planning for this weekend for months, making menus, talking to hotels, and getting the guesthouse ready. There were roughly 100 North Americans who came to San Juan for this special ceremony. I loved seeing and meeting so many people who share the same love for Solid Rock and the Clinic.

I ask for prayer as I am still working towards getting my residency in the Dominican Republic. There are so many hoops to jump through, and my lawyer is having a difficult time getting some of the documents required, which I have given to her long ago, approved. This needs to happen before October, or I have to start the whole process over again. I also ask for prayer, as we have the next three weeks off from teams. Please pray that I can rest, look back, and acknowledge what has taken place in the last three months.

Thank you for your love and support!
