UUSOP Honduras Medical Mission Team
5 faculty members, 1 alumnus and 27 students from the UUSOP went to Tegucigalpa, Honduras, January 5-12, 2013, with World Gospel Outreach to participate in a medical mission trip. Not only did the UUSOP team work in the pharmacy, they also assisted dental and medical teams with seeing more than 2,000 patients during the week. Additionally, the team played with children from nearby villages and provided treatment and hair washing to remove lice. They shared the gospel of Christ with both the children and adults that passed through each medical brigade. Several members also poured a concrete floor in the pastor's one-room house and another concrete pad so the pastor could add on to his home in the future. Many hearts and lives were blessed not only of those being served but of those doing the serving.
