In January, the Oasis hosted Origins church from OH, to do a medical campaign. This is the second year Oasis has hosted them at their facilities and it was once again a tremendous blessing for them and the community at large. They come down every year with doctors, nurses, pastors and others with a heart to serve and they partner with local doctors, dentists and churches to do medical campaigns, evangelism and service projects.
Over 150 people were able to be attended to on that day. The Oasis staff helped, as well as many volunteers from local churches. Each patient was presented with the gospel as well as getting medical help.
On entering the Oasis gates the soccer court transformed into an archery range! This was a very cool way to keep the kids entertained while mom was having a tooth removed. There was also face painting and fancy hairdos for the kids as well as a kid’s club.
Besides the foot specialists there were also a couple of Peruvian general practitioners and some dentists. When the doctor prescribed something the patient could then get it at the free pharmacy. There were also three dentists pulling teeth, cleaning and even putting in new teeth!
All in all it a very good day at the Oasis Care Center. Thanks to Origens for making it happen and to the Lord for allowing us to spread His love into the community a little more.
