John Thweatt, pastor of First Baptist Church, Pell City, in St. Clair Baptist Association, led a team to Kenya on a medical missions trip Jan. 15–25.
The team consisted of 12 members of First, Pell City; a member of Willowbrook Baptist Church, Huntsville, in Madison Baptist Association; a member of Twelfth Street Baptist Church, Gadsden, in Etowah Baptist Association; and five others from Georgia.
Working mainly among the Sabaot people, the team conducted 10 medical clinics in conjunction with local Baptist churches and averaged seeing 200–300 people a day at each of the clinics.
“We did medical missions in order to be able to do evangelism. Our goal was to strengthen and assist the local churches,” Thweatt said. “God was good throughout the entire trip.”
