Guatemala 2015-Medical Mission Kathy Leopold will be in Guatemala from January 27 - February 5 with doctors, nurses, dentists, and eye specialists ministering in nearby villages. Her team of 20 will serve the native people, the Mayas, who are in great need of medical attention. The medical attention they receive from us may well be the only visit with a real doctor they have all year! They anticipate seeing about 1000 men, women and children. Mostly children. We are in need of vitamins. A bottle of 100 vitamins will meet the needs of only three people; therefore thousands of vitamins are needed for men, women, and children. PLEASE NO GUMMIES!!! Also, toothbrushes are needed. NO TOOTHPASTE because it is eaten. There will be a box marked GUATEMALA in the lobby starting December 14th. Monetary donations will also be accepted. Kathy will personally deliver your donations and then report back to you. Daily Bible Readings Pastor Charlie created a list of daily Bible readings for the congregation and visitors. They will be linked to both the Sunday Sermon and the Bible Study each week. The goal is to provide a convenient way for everyone to read and learn from the Bible. In addition, there will be a question to go with each scripture reading in blue text under "Featured Events" to help you delve further into the reading.
