Another update from Saint-Louis, Senegal:
It was a little more than 1 month ago that we sent a team to Senegal to help serve the community of Saint-Louis. While we were there, we had the opportunity to share our lives with the community. One of our missionary couples said:
“It was super-encouraging having the short-term team here. …, they helped us… beyond anything that we could do ourselves … Before we even moved into our neighborhood, one neighbor lady came up to us, telling us about how her body hurts. We told her that we were sorry, but had nothing physical to offer her to help her out. … she continued to remind us about her little aches and pains. As we were in charge of signing people up for the free medical clinics the week before the short term team came, we were thrilled to offer her a ticket…. our neighbor was among those blessed by the free care. (V.B). got to greet her when she came in and screen her blood pressure and glucose, and after her consultation with the doctor, (E.B) was able to pray for her in the optional prayer room we offered to the patients. Not only was she able to find help for her physical needs, she was able to see that we are there for her spiritual needs as well.”
