An 11-member medical missions team from Dawson Memorial Baptist Church, Birmingham, recently ministered to the physical and spiritual needs of earthquake victims in Haiti.
The team concentrated its work in the Gressier community, located about 15 miles from the capital, Port-au-Prince, and saw 48 people make professions of faith in Jesus Christ.
In addition to providing medical care for 1,151 people, the team donated tents for local families and medical supplies for a clinic located in a local church orphanage.
While the team was in Haiti, members of the Birmingham Baptist Association church gathered 424 Buckets of Hope to provide food for Haitian families.
