Medical Mission Trip… Coming this Fall!

Hebron USA is organizing a Medical Mission trip to Chiapas, Mexico, in October 2016. The trip will consist of two weeks in the village of Ch’ixtontic, which by all accounts is a beautiful village high on a ridge and inhabited by very hospitable Tzeltal people. The trip gives the participant the option of one or both weeks.

Week one runs from 1 October to 9 October.

Week two runs from 8 October to 16 October.

Trip costs include $500 per week for all in country expenses plus airfare to Tuxtla Guttierrez. Participants are expected to make their own travel arrangements with help from trip leaders. Priorities for participants are medical providers( docs, Pas, nurses, nurse practitioners, etc.); Spanish speakers for translators and non-medical folks. Our early medical work was to the villages and has been a favorite of previous travelers. We will sleep on air beds and have flush toilets and showers( cold).

Applications and further general info can be downloaded at the Hebron USA website. Deadline for application, with payment of a $100 application fee, is August 25. Trip leaders are Penny Musson, RN and Bill Herring , MD. Bill and Penny have led around 20 medical trips to Chiapas and would welcome inquiries from interested parties. Contact info is Bill Herring, walnutcovefarm@yahoo.com Home# 828-297- 4604 and Penny Musson, pennymusson@yahoo.com Home # 336-921- 2131.

Dresses for Chiapas

We got a call last week from Janet Rolison in Winston Salem. She and her sisters Casey and Shirley have been making dresses for children for several years. The three sisters have made over 1,200 dresses so far. They work on these in their spare time and send them to Janet who then gives the dresses to groups going on mission trips. These groups have shared these beautiful little dresses with children in Haiti, Belize, Nicaragua, Uganda and Chaiaps.

Janet gave us 50 dresses to take with us this summer as we work in villages in Chiapas. We will ask Jan Feliciano, the wife and partner of Hebron USA missionary Pablo Felicano Cruz to help our teams determine how to distribute the dresses among the churches we are working with.

Thanks Janet for this amazing gift and stay tunes for pictures of some cute little Chiapas children wearing these.

Pablo and Jan Arrive in the US

Hebron USA missionaries Pablo and Jan Feliciano Cruz arrive in Charlotte on Friday afternoon.
Pablo and Jan2015

They had a relaxing day at the lake on Saturday and then Pablo preached at Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church on Sunday morning April 12. He spoke about taming the giants that we encounter in our everyday lives referencing the story of David and Goliath from 1 Samuel.

Pablo Preaching

Pablo also shared the news that he has been tapped to lead a coalition of religious associations (other wise know as denominations here in the US) in Chiapas as they discuss the importance of religious tolerance. It is not uncommon for religious persecution to occur in the remote villages of Chiapas and Pablo has been called upon in the past to mediate and heal division that have occurred as a result of intolerance to different faiths or sects.

Join us Wednesday night April 15 at Clemmons Presbyterian Church to meet Pablo and Jan and learn about their ministry in Chaiaps, MX.
