5 Ways to Support Our Medical Mission

IMG_1854
Keegan and I are deeply blessed to be going back to Valladolid, Mexico in June. We’ll be serving with International Medical Assistance and working in the same hospital, Centro Medico San Lucas. This is IMA’s biggest trip of the year. Our team will perform hundreds of surgeries over 5 days, as well as 300 dental procedures, build an eye clinic, and see hundreds of children in the villages. We will play with them and run medical clinics. And best of all, every patient will hear the gospel. We will love and care and support and come alongside the sick and the poor. We plan to once again, give our brothers and sisters everything we’ve got.
A few significant changes are happening this year though. Keegan is coming back, but in a medical capacity. The trip touched him so deeply last year, that he changed his major at U of A and is pursuing a Family Studies Major with a pre-health minor. His ultimate goal is to become a pediatric oncologist. I came back to the US and went back to school. I’m now a Licensed, Certified Nursing Assistant and plan to pursue a nursing degree. Can’t wait for pictures this year as Keegan will be in scrubs too!
We must thank all of the donors from last year, who made the trip possible for us. As you can see it has changed our lives. Our only desire is to continue to serve those who need our help while continuing with life-long learning. Keegan and I are committed to assisting people at the highest level.
We have raised a good portion of funds this year, but as you’ll see below, we have a little gap to fill. We appreciate in advance, any and all support. We love you all and look forward to partnering with each of you to get our boots on the ground in Valladolid.
5 Ways you can help:
1.) Pray for provision in every way, for the safety of our team, and for those supporting us from home.
2.)Donate readers. You know those cute reading glasses from Dollar Tree? There is a desperate need for those and we’d be more than happy to take them to Mexico.
3.) Donate Advil, Tylenol or other pain killers. Please note, we cannot take expired medication into Mexico.
4.) Donate airline funds. Keegan and I are using points to purchase our airfare and are one round trip ticket short. Airline tickets are about $850.
5.) Donate to our individual trip fund. If you give to Scottsdale Bible Church it is tax deductible. Keegan and I are $350 short (total) on our trip fees.

Partnering with the Equipped

On July 14 Keegan and I will be traveling to Valladolid, Yucatan, Mexico to serve on a medical mission trip with Scottsdale Bible Church. We will travel with an incredible team of Doctors, Dentists, Nurses, Musicians and Outreach experts.

At this point, I will be working in the hospital, in pre-op. If you know me at all, you know this isn’t a case of God calling the equipped. I know though, that He has indeed called and will equip me. I’m most excited about being able to show God’s love to a literal, physically hurting people. Through an interpreter and my actions, I will show each patient how important they are, how much they are loved by God.

We will bring healing to the sick, serve surrounding villages, put on open air concerts and perform up to 200 surgeries and necessary procedures.

Every person that is treated in the hospital will have the opportunity to hear the gospel. I’m so excited and blessed to be a part of this team.

I’m looking to partner with you; the very much equipped. There are 3 ways that we can team up and do this together.

1.) Prayer. Pray for safe travel, safety in the Mayan village, that we would bless people mightily and that the funds to go and serve would be generated in God’s perfect timing.

2.)Financial support: Total cost of the trip is $1800. Every donation in any amount is tremendously helpful. Your financial support is tax deductible and you’ll be provided with a receipt.

3.) Help us by purchasing items from the following list:

  • Flip-flops for children
  • Eye Glasses (2.0 and up) These are at the dollar store for you guessed it, a dollar.
  • Bottles of Advil, Tylenol and Children’s Vitamins
  • Glucose Test Kits
  • Pony tail holders, Head Bands
  • Soccer and Basketballs
  • Crayons, Scissors, Sharpies
  • Ziploc bags
Together, we’ll be a part of something much bigger than ourselves. I believe God calls us to that every day.
If you’re able to help would you indicate that in the comments? I especially appreciate your prayers.
