Full Report from the Bristol, VA Resource Clinic

This past weekend we had the privilege of hosting our third resource clinic of this year. Our ministry partnered with several local churches in the area. The clinic was held at Community Baptist Church which is pastored by one of our board member’s, Todd Crusenberry. The meal for the day was provided and prepared by Joel Wray and his team from Soup for the Soul, a local ministry that has a mobile kitchen and serves meals.

Friday visitation

Friday several of our team spent all day on the streets of the community handing out flyers about the clinic on Saturday, praying, and witnessing.

Volunteer Meeting and Fellowship Dinner

Friday night Community Baptist Church was gracious enough to host a fellowship dinner for our team and volunteers. The Friday night before the clinic is our time to hold a meeting about the clinic set up, function and expectations for the next day. We are able to go over any questions or concerns that volunteers might have.

Great Preaching and Singing

At this clinic we were blessed to have The Sampson Family providing our worship and singing. Billy Sampson and his three daughters, Ashley, Sarah and Emily provided wonderful singing during the worship service. Billy’s son-in-law, Justin Williamson, preached the message to our guests. We are praising God for two salvation’s and two re-dedication’s.

                            

One of the souls saved at the clinic was Randy. Here he is pictured with one of our team leaders, Denny Mitchell, our Board Chairman, Howard Dye and another guest. Randy was also blessed with a brand new lawn mower. Pray for Randy as he begins his new life in Christ.

Throughout the day we offered our free resources to all the guest. Clothing, birth certificates, personal hygiene, reading glasses, medical screenings, and Bibles were a blessing. Sometimes something as simple as checking a person’s vital signs can lead to them obtaining more vital medical help that they were unaware was even needed. The resources are intended to help with things they might be missing because of homelessness or poverty.

We want to thank all of the selfless volunteers, churches and organizations who made this great day possible. Without their help we couldn’t have pulled all this together.
