Clinic in Chajbal

We had a great clinic today in Chajbal.  We had 18 patients and one dental cleaning.  Not sure how many dental patients they had but they stayed busy too.

When we arrived, we had patients waiting.

 We quickly unpacked the trucks and set up shop.

Manuel, Teresa and I worked with the medical patients.  Andrea and Maria worked with the dental patients.
Something so simple and yet so strong...........I Corinthians 11:23-26......Paul is talking about the Lord's Supper or Communion.

 23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

I really like to think about the last verse.  It is a continuation of this practice to proclaim to the world that we believe that Christ died and that He will return for us.  Yes, it needs to be a respectful time but also a joyful time. It is His death that gives Christians hope of eternal life. Without His death and access to His blood, we have no forgiveness.
