Team Wisconsin Update 9-20-07

For the 13th time, a medical team, consisting of Wisconsinites and Nicaraguans, brought people the gospel, medication and health education in Nicaragua. 3,000 people were assisted in 6 days of clinics. Four people accepted Christ and some people began to resume attendance at the local churches. $1,000 in medication was also purchased by the team to go to victims of Hurricane Felix on the east coast of Nicaragua. Nicaraguan church members helped at each clinic by helping to organize, packaging medicine, entertaining children and preparing a noon meal for the staff. Julie Eckhardt and Amy Knox are working on ways to administer continued health care and education, including seminars, clinics, and one on one education.

How can you help? Collect eyeglasses, small toys, adult and children's toothbrushes, and donate funds for Bibles, Bible Story Cards, and medicine. Also, you can join a team. Dates for 2008 medical teams are February 13-21 & September 10-18. Team application information can be accessed at: www.ecwesleyan.net
