It's hard to share what the clinic does on a daily basis via a blog or photos on social media. Usually the biggest things for God that they do (or you could say that He enables them to do), are also the hardest to "capture."
Here are a few recent "histories" though
We got an initial estimate for turning the clinic into a hospital from the construction firm. To do everything needed to go to three stories, double wide from what we are now...from about 8000' to 24000', done to a hospital standard and built to withstand adding more floors in the future...over $500,000.
That might be more money than we have raised in the last 20 years combined for building projects. Just looking at the number, it seems unlikely.
It seems that way, it really does. The word "daunting" comes to mind.
Time to pray to Him who turns what seems unlikely or impossible into possible, start working on a plan, and see what He does. And keep helping people in His name as we go.
Hospital visits here are scary things, regarding the reason. Some things are available for a price, some specialties or treatments just aren't available no matter the hospital you can afford. One visit may end well (whether quick or exhaustingly long) and another quite differently, often without answers or reasons.
The realities of that are faced every day throughout the mission, throughout Honduras, in different ways. It gives us pause to pray, to see how we can do more in the clinic and Churches, and to focus ultimately on each moment we are given and not look too far down the road, as bumpy or smooth as it might currently seem to be.
