2nd Annual Celebration & Fundraiser - September 12th
Our Next Project!
Installation Date On Hold Due to COVID Pandemic
Unfortunately, the installation date is on hold. The Guatemalan government has not yet allowed entrance into the country or travel between departments, i.e. their states.
However, the nurse and dentist are busy seeing patients in the clinic. They also make house calls to the villages in the mountains above the town.
Dr. Joel Strohecker consults from Denver via WhatsApp and sends needed medical supplies.
Dr. Joel Strohecker co-founded the Clinic in the small town of Camotan in 2016.
The Clinic offers primary care from obstetrics and pediatrics to dental care and geriatrics. His goal is providing health care to the townspeople and the thousands of native people in the mountains above who suffer from extreme poverty.
Dr. Joel has a heart for mission and a passion to heal and serve. He divides his time between seeing patients every month at the Clinic and practicing as a hospitalist at Lutheran Medical Center in Wheatridge CO.
Donations Buy Food
for Needy Families
The Guatemalan people in towns and villages are having difficulty getting food due to their extreme poverty during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their situation is so dire that they signal their need with white flags outside their homes.
In response, the GMP donated $1500 and Partnership member Marsha donated $500 to buy food and supplies for our brothers and sisters in Christ who were in need.
Food and supplies were delivered to families in the Franja Transversal del Norte Presbytery. We are grateful for the church leaders who drove many miles on dirt roads and crossed the river.
The GMP previously installed water systems in three remote villages of that Presbytery.
