Denison-Sherman Church Hosts Free Medical Clinic
Denison » The Denison-Sherman Seventh-day Adventist Church united with Adventist Medical Evangelism Network (AMEN) and held a free dental/medical/vision weekend on April 28-30. We opened our doors to the community for dental services (cleanings/extractions/fillings), vision services (exams with free single vision glasses), and medical (basic medical exams). We served 138 people over the weekend. The clinic was open on Friday and Sunday, with health seminars on Saturday.
During the event, our lifestyle team offered more than 500 prayers and our chaplaincy team counseled many people, but the most amazing thing to watch was the way God put the right volunteer in the right places.
One of those divine appointments took a lot of set up on God’s part. God brought in a couple from Idaho to serve as volunteers. One of those was Denise, a dental assistant. They arrived a day early and went out to breakfast at a local IHOP. When they had finished their meal and were checking out, they noticed that the manager/cashier seemed to be in a little pain. It was discovered that the manager had many bad teeth and they were causing him discomfort.
“I invited him to the AMEN clinic,” said Denise. “He told us he is raising his three children by himself and everything he has is going to them.”
We definitely intend to do everything we can to provide this free clinic to our community each year. God used us to bless so many and to unite our church in a way that others could see how much we love each other as a church family.
Galatians 6:10 guided us as we worked: “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.”
