December 2011

Another year has almost come and gone! How good God is to us to let us have some of His time to redeem. We hope your Christmas and New Year are sweet and memorable this year!

We cherish this opportunity to touch base with you. We're aware that many of you donate to us and the ministry of the Clinic, and also that most of you will mention us and the work here in prayer before the Lord. And we're grateful far beyond the always inadequately framed words that will fill this page. Thank you!

Here are a new batch of photos with some explantions that should help a bit to flesh out our last few months of life and service!

Kids against Hunger

Kids Against Hunger provided hundreds of protein filled meals for some of our drought areas. You just add water to these and boil. During our recent medical outreaches in the Mixtec villages of Tetepelcingo, Pueblo Viejo, and Ixtayutla, Laura gave these to the national workers and/or pastors.

The following photos show some mountain village medical outreaches where not only Laura and the regular Corban Clinic personnel worked but also the students from the Clinic's Community Health Workers course and from the Roca Blanca Spanish Language School, who were involved in preventive care teaching, children's programs, and interpreting for medical consultations.

Ashley, Emily, Grace, and Keisha were a great blessing in the villages, and got to practice their Spanish while experiencing the Mixtec culture and dialect first hand.

General Surgeon Dr. Merlin Kirby doing consultations in Tetepelcingo with a Spanish school student interpreting and a Community Health Worker student aiding. His wife, Helen, was a blessing to us all as well! Dr. Kirby also blessed many patients with minor surgeries at the Corban Clinic.

Disease prevention presentations are invaluable for these young mothers, many of whom marry and begin to bear children between thirteen and fifteen years old.

Spanish school students Milo and Jake get vital signs for a Mixtec patient.

It's a new morning and time to get to work again after a night camping out on a porch. Missionary Nurse Practitioner Jolynne Myers is happy and ready to go at it! Can't quite say the same for some of the rest, but it will be a great day in the village!

podiatrist_and_student.jpg

EMT Mark Bunner, his wife Coraleen, and Chuck and Rebecca Leidig from Kansas joined forces with some medical folks from a Mexican church in Querétaro. Debiltating foot problems are not uncommon, and this podiatrist is helping this Mixteco land owner and farmer. His status as a land owner is evidenced by the colored tassels on his shirt.

Spanish teacher, Irma, and students teach and have fun with the children while consultations are going on. The seeds of love and attention will be growing and harvested for years to come!

Grace is getting hugs from kids that often get very little demonstrative love from their families. Jesus was happy about the children coming to Him, and we get ample opportunity to receive them as well!

The Clinic evangelist, Jesús, gets a lot of opportunity to pray for and minister personally to our patients. Many begin their walk with Christ because of him.

Here's one example of that from a recent trip. A woman came to the consultation that we set up in her village. Ever since she had been beaten repeatedly on her head by her first husband she's suffered epileptic like seizures. Sadly, wife beating is not at all uncommon here, being part of the machismo that Mexican men are known for. She was checked, given treatment, and went home. The next morning she suffered a seizure while she was making tortillas by hand (a daily activity) and her new husband found her soon after with her hand on the hot comal, a special clay flat pan for tortilla making. She returned to the consultation site with second degree burns and a broken spirit. She was loved on, prayed for, and treated, and also received Christ with joy. The Mixteco pastor will continue with her and her husband, encouraging them in their own native tongue to "learn of him who is meek and lowly of heart."

Since Laura and I have been doing Sunday night Bible studies in the street in our own little fishing village using PowerPoint presentations that we create new each week, we're seeing more and more interest and openness among our fisher friends and their families. We've also been praying for a while for a spiritualist healer who practices here, but had not had direct contact with him. He surprised us a few weeks ago with a visit to the Clinic. He left smiling and loved, and with the best of Good News in his ears. There's been more positive contact since then, and we're praying for the unique joy of salvation for him and others. Pray with us for fruit of this kind, more fruit, and fruit that remains!


 

Laura and I have enjoyed seeing our future house begin to take form lately! Here are a few quick photos of the first two days of work.

I at least got into one of this blog's photos, even it's a only a backside view with my orange hat!

Here's how it looked at the end of day two, the manufacturer of the SIPS panels having used our house as a training project for local builders and architects interested in using his product. This was a blessing to us since those who came and worked had paid to come, meaning two days of free labor for our house! All of the walls and part of the roof will be up in another few days work. The rest of the house will go up a piece at a time between now and July 2012. It will be really nice to have some more space and to be able to have a guest room!


 

Here's a little special request for any of you who have WOT (Web of Trust) installed in your computer's web browser. Someone among their evaluators decided that the sites that we use for our ministry had been created by hackers. The result is that when the site is reached on the Internet a scary warning comes up informing all that they shouldn't open the site! According to them the only way to change this is to have enough people who use WOT go to their site and rate our pages. So, if you use WOT, would you mind going to http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/davidlaura.org , http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/rocablancaspanish.com , and http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/corbanclinic.org , to positively rate our sites. Sincere thanks!


 

Thank you for praying to the Lord of the Harvest concerning us and the work that He has given us here. Your interaction with us is not unnoticed or unappreciated by any means. God's rich blessing in all that you do and are! We're so very grateful for you.

Laura and Dr. Eder and Paulina's Nelly bid you a wonderfully pleasant and joyful Christmas and New Year! Until next time!
