Dr. Ricardo and Chiquita Lemus from Joplin, Missouri, traveled with a group of dentists from Mississippi to provide a dental clinic for orphans in Matamoros, Mexico, in September. They took a Solar Kit from GNPI with them. Dr. Lemus said, “It was awesome!”
Several months before his trip Dr. Lemus had the chance to meet GNPI’s Matt Brock at a community event, and he came by our office for a tour. Dr. Lemus was impressed with the Solar Kit and made sure to connect GNPI with one of his friends preparing to go to Africa to do mission work. Dr. Lemus said God worked out the details so that he and his wife were able to take one of the Solar Kits on their trip.
Dr. Lemus said,
The Solar Kit was effective and very easy to use. We used it in the waiting room, so the orphans and the neighbors could watch it. The kids were so attentive. I watched their faces as they saw the scene of Jesus being beaten before he was crucified. The kids didn’t know Jesus suffered this way. It was powerful for them to see. I found that the Solar Kit made the conversations about Jesus easier because of what they had watched.
I’d like to take the Solar Kit again next year. I thought it was perfect!
Thank you for helping these young people in Mexico to learn what Jesus did for them on the cross. Your gifts made it possible for Dr. Ricardo to take a Solar Kit loaded with biblical Spanish resources on his mission trip.
