Guatemala 2015-Medical Mission Kathy Leopold will be in Guatemala from January 27 - February 5 with doctors, nurses, dentists, and eye specialists ministering in nearby villages. Her team of 20 will serve the native people, the Mayas, who are in great need of medical attention. The medical attention they receive from us may well be the only visit with a real doctor they have all year! They anticipate seeing about 1000 men, women and children. Mostly children. We are in need of vitamins. A bottle of 100 vitamins will meet the needs of only three people; therefore thousands of vitamins are needed for men, women, and children. PLEASE NO GUMMIES!!! These are eaten like candy. Also, toothbrushes are needed. The dentists teach dental care and give a toothbrush to each patient. NO TOOTHPASTE because it also is eaten. There will be a box marked GUATEMALA in the lobby starting December 14th. Prayerfully consider donating to this mission. Monetary donations will also be accepted. It will be Kathy's pleasure to personally deliver your donations and then report back to you.
