A team of 25 medical personnel from the U.S. spent time this past week in rural Honduras meeting medical needs and sharing the Good News in word and deed. 942 patients were seen in four different locations and 44 people gave their hearts to the Lord.
This is an annual event (normally in February) organized by EFM Missionary, Daniel Melton and our team in Honduras. If you are interested in participating in the future, you can contact him.
Many of the team members are so impacted by the experience, that they participate each year. We are so thankful for their investment in the ministry of EFM, and we are excited about the work that God does through them.
One area that the team went this year was in extremely rural areas where there is no local church. The people were dealing with extreme malnutrition and many had not seen a doctor for years (if ever.) The impact of this team will be felt long after they’re gone, and as a result of their work, most likely a church will be planted in this previously unreached area.

While the patients are waiting to be seen, other members of the team share the Gospel message and have activities for the children.
