Eighty campaigners representing 18 congregations participated in our 2013 Nicaragua Medical campaign in El Rama, Nicaragua June 15-22, 2013. On Saturday morning 80 campaigners, 11 local preachers, and five translators boarded two old school busses after loading our luggage, supplies, and medicine onto a large truck. We traveled approximately six hours from Managua to El Rama.
We spent about three hours Saturday afternoon setting the building up for the medical campaign which started at 8 a.m. Sunday. The crowds were very large every day. There were 750 to 1,000 people in line at all times. We closed the clinic at approximately 5:30 p.m. each day. The evangelism service started at 6 p.m. with 30 minutes of English singing. At 6:30 the Spanish service started and usually lasted until 7:30 p.m.
We had a great group of workers. Each would finish their jobs and ask if they could help in other areas. We saw 1687 patients and had eight baptisms and four restorations.
It was a joy to see old acquaintances and to meet many new members of the church. God certainly blessed us by allowing us to serve the people of Nicaragua and watched over us as we traveled.
