2014 has only just begun and Abigail Association is already blessed! We had the honor of hosting and working along side of the Hand of Hope Medical Mission team for a week and so many lives were touched. The team consisted of 31 doctors, dentists, nurses, and volunteers. We treated patients in two different locations and 3,507 patients were treated in a span of 5 days. There were also 373 eternal decisions made as well so we know there is much rejoicing in heaven over this event. We heard so many stories of how people were not able to get to a hospital or when they went, there were no medicines. People with infected wounds and bites were able to have them treated. It was just absolutely amazing what all God did during those 5 days and I could spend hours sharing stories. When we are all together for a thousand years, I can share. But for now, check out photos and short stories on my Facebook page.
I have two specific goals for Abigail Association this year. One is to reach more children through our Hope Center. We currently have 60 children receiving hope, but we have space for 150. We need one more teacher and several other volunteers who would be willing to help in order to reach this goal. The children we have now are amazing and are learning so much. They have art classes, music classes, Bible classes and even English classes!!!!! Imagine my surprise when I went as Santa to our Christmas event there and they surprised me by singing Christmas carols in English. That may not seem like much but where these children live, they would never have the chance to learn English. Just look how The Lord is blessing!!!!! I was in tears
