Annual Appeal Letter November 2022
This previous June, our team was fortunate to return to the Izabal region of Guatemala to conduct a four-day medical clinic. On our second day, a fellow provider approached me for a consultation. I was greeted by a young mother and the patient in question — a baby that was about one month old. The baby appeared to be below
average in size and sluggish. The mother shared that the child had not been eating recently and it was clear to our team that immediate action was needed as they were suffering from dehydration, amongst other possible medical problems. We quickly started to rehydrate the baby. By utilizing our resources and relationship with the
community, we were able to provide transportation for the baby and mother to the hospital — which was over two hours away — for further medical assistance.
This upcoming year, our team would like to place an emphasis on health education and water filtration in addition to providing crucial medical care. Within the Izabal region, one in five individuals do not have access to clean water.

Hector's Mini Clinics
Our in-country missionary (and superstar!) Hector spent the last few weeks putting on “mini-clinics” in the villages of Sahila, La Libertad, and El Florido with the help of his niece Kristhel, who is currently studying medicine. In between trips to bring patients to Fray Hospital, Hector has been visiting neighboring villages to provide blood sugar checks for diabetic patients, blood pressure checks for patients with high blood pressure, and food for elderly patients. For many of our patients, it is too expensive to own a blood glucose monitor or blood pressure cuff. By providing this crucial service, patients can gain a better understanding of their health. Hector truly is the life-blood of our mission and wants his people to know our goal is that “we try to make your life a little less forgotten, a little less rejected… a little more included”.
