Rio Medical Mission - Day 7

´Dear Children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.´ 1 John 3:18

Greetings from the servants of Christ Jesus in Rio.

All are well and safe.

It was a short day today. We worked only till lunch time...then had a party for the children...then a departing celebration at the new church.

For the week, 681 eye, 833 children and 576 general medicine patients were cared for. 3,702 prescriptions were filled. 408 claimed Jesus Christ as there Savior and Lord. In addition, hundreds of floride treatments were given. For many, if not all, of the children, this was the first time their teeth had ever met paste and brush.

Tomorrow we begin our journey home with a scheduled arrival in Nashville - Sunday,1:00 PM.

In the coming weeks, when you see Raja and Kevin O´Brien walking the halls of Brentwood Baptist, make sure you let them know how much you appreciate their devotion to the Rio Medical Mission. As 1 John commands´...let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth´. Raja and Kevin´s ´actions´ have an enormous affect on these people. We are all overwhelmed by the out pouring of love. There is just nothing left to say!
