Post F of the Louisiana Division

The Louisiana Division and Louisiana Post F teamed up to support Post F member and Registered Nurse Ramona McCorquodale’s participation in a medical mission trip to Africa in June, 2023. After arriving at Makindu, Kenya by bus, the group spent a day at each of five villages. They saw patients and offered basic medical and dental care. There was also a veterinary team to care for the animals in the villages. A pastoral team talked to the villagers about Jesus and set up churches in each village. Over the course of five days, 1802 patients were seen, 10,694 packages of medication were dispensed, 25 surgeries were performed, 343 teeth were extracted and 1,407 animals were vaccinated. The mission was sponsored by Church Missions Network and assisted by Trinity Baptist Church of Lake Charles, LA.
