Another busy and fruitful week in the Paradise Medical Clinic! We saw and helped over 200 patients this week! Today was exciting! A 15 year old girl from the high school down the street was brought in unresponsive. The Doctor and nurses went to work and had her revived in no time at all. Gave her some treatments and meds and 30 minutes later she walked out the door fine! But today's highlight was our patient named Eliveria! She is almost 96 years old and so sweet! She asked me if I liked eggs. Well anyone who knows me knows I hate eggs so my answer was no. She said this" Oh I want to give you something but all I have is eggs, the fruit trees are not producing right now. I wanted to give you something because you have helped me so much especially living a longer life. Without this clinic and the medical care and medicines that you provide, I would have died long ago, thank you". That made my day! Blessing to everyone who supports and partners with this ministry to help the poor!

Today I would like to share something with you all if I may! One of our regular patients, his name is Teodoro. He has high blood pressure and diabetes. He takes 3 different pills for blood pressure and another pill for his diabetes. He had a stroke about a year ago, his second stroke in 4 years. He also has prostate issues and has a catheter and urine bag. His wife takes care of him but it is hard for her, she also has high blood pressure and diabetes. They are poor and do not have much but they have each other. Imagine you have very little money.....I mean very little! Then you have these illnesses and have had 2 strokes. Your wife has to help dress you and then help you get on a motorcycle to go to the clinic. You struggle to walk with a cane and after seeing the Doctor and getting your medicines you have to struggle to get back on a motorcycle to get back home. On top of that it was like 95 F out today with full sun. Thought for the day......How hard was your day?! Blessings in Jesus name.

Update: The Paradise Clinic continues to bless many in need. We had a 13 year old girl come in and she is pregnant, always hard for us to see this. Tried talking to the young girl but she is in love with her 24 year old boyfriend and says that they are married! We had a patient today who was at the clinic for the first time. After they consulted with the Doctor and then got their medicines they said to me " Thank you very much". Now that may not sound so amazing as to share but we did 38 consults today and they were the only one that said thank you very much. Just a reminder to always be thankful....first to God and then to those around us that bless us. Sometimes you can be a blessing just by saying Thank you! Sooo.......THANK YOU!, to all that pray, support and partner with us in this ministry. You are blessing us and many others!

Well what a busy week in the Paradise Medical Clinic! We did 206 consultations this week. Lots of patients with the flu as it has been unusually cool and rainy here. Lots of breathing problems. We saved a baby's life this week, 5 month old Estevan! Been a productive week. One patient said to me " thank God this clinic is here for us, we really need this blessing". The staff have been doing a great job. We are still looking for volunteers to come and partner with us. What a great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many in need! May God bless everyone who partners with this ministry!

Paradise Clinic Update: Today we saw 51 patients but it was the youngest and smallest patient ( see pictured ) that gave us a scare. This baby which is 4 months old was brought in not breathing. Our wonderful Doctura Marte took control and revived the baby very quickly....saving the baby's life! Thank God for this clinic as this baby may have died today without it! Thank God for the great staff we have that works so well together! Thank you Jesus for empowering us to make a difference! Lastly, thank you to all who partner with us in this ministry and make saving lives possible! Blessings!

Day 1 with Clearview Community Church. What a great day! Started with lots of rain! Then we were off to Oceanside Christian Fellowship. The team helped us set up the equipment for the service, that was a blessing. Then we had a great service. After we had a delicious Dominican meal. Then we were off to Paradise. The team helped us fill our shelves with the huge amount of donations they brought for the clinic. Then they did a Children's program for 100 children. Great skit and lesson, get rid of those rocks! Then we left for La Vigia. We saw the house and met the family of the house we will be building. Had a nice dinner in the house of Dubalis.
