We are in the final countdown to our Guatemala medical team visit. Because we hadn’t yet received our charitable status, we partnered with Loving Arms, a Canadian charity which operates out of their Centre of Hope in Parramos, Guatemala. EMI will be sending a medical team to Itzapa — a city of 32,000 people — in November.
Rebecca McAlpine, EMI’s Medical Projects Director, has been working tirelessly to put this team together and will be providing leadership in Guatemala. I had no idea how much it takes to organize one of these trips. We are so grateful for all of her hard work. The team of 13 people includes 3 doctors and 5 nurses.
We will be working at the Loving Arms Centre of Hope and in nearby villages providing needed medical care and health education. The team will be leaving on November 5th and returning on November 13th. Please pray for the safety and success of this team of amazing volunteers.
