Giving Thanks to Villa Milagro & Medical Mission Team

DHF Family,

Juanita of VB "Friends Forever" waiting for meds
It was a day filled with hope and laughter. Yesterday, DiscoverHope participated in our first ever Medical Mission. Thanks to the generous support of Villa Milagro over 350 of our loan recipients, their children, and family members received free medical attention,vision and dental screenings, vitamins, and prescription meds at Monte Sion Medical Clinic. Women started lining up as early as 6AM and no one was turned away.
Last year I had the great privilege of meeting LarryJohnson, native Texan and co-founder of Villa Milagro Ministries, which provides Cajamarquinos with spiritual and economic support through specialized projects. We made a sweet deal that if I volunteered as a translator, Villa Milagro would invite our loan recipients to participate in a medical mission in 2012. This was probably the best deal I’ve ever made in my life! I'm also extremely grateful to the Mission Team comprised of doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, grandmothers, and grandchildren from Arkansa who selflessley and tirelessly gave of themselves. In the end, our women went away happy, relieved, and extremely appreciative to be a part of such an amazing event.
Thanks once again to Villa Milagro for your generous support. This is the beginning of a beautiful relationship!
