"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being ROOTED and grounded in LOVE, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the LOVE of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."

~Ephesians 3:14-21

Villa Milagro Hosts Medical Clinic

"I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive." 
-Acts 20:35

What a blessing to be a part of the Medical Clinic that volunteers from the States helped coordinate and plan. Over 250 patients arrived all walking in to hear the Word of God and having an opportunity to see medical and dental physicians who gratefully gave their heart and time as they used their God given talents to help others in need. Numerous smiles on each patients face as mostly all of them received a new toothbrush and toothpaste (thank you Dr. John Pruitt and Lou Ann Dyson, from North Carolina, for donating these much needed items)!

The Arkansas Baptist High School students and Dr. Stephen Walker's family and friends all came together with one goal in mind...to share God's love! Please pray for each person that walked through the door, that God will continue to reveal Himself in a mighty way and that one day they will come to accept Him as their Lord and Savior. Please pray for all the health issues that were diagnosed and pray that God will heal them if it be in His will and that they will have the strength to face the sufferings and pain that they may be experiencing. 

Jesus reminds us all that there will be suffering here on this Earth. Through our struggles and hardships, may we all have the strength to focus on the things we cannot see, but as the verse says, things that will last forever.

"So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever." 
-2 Corinthians 4:18

Thank you for all the hard work and medical supplies donated from volunteers and supporters of Villa Milagro Minsitry and again thanks for your hearts for missions and reaching others for Christ. 

May God Bless You All!
