Bourne of Four

Guatemala Medical Mission
"And they came unto Jesus, bringing one sick of palsy, which was borne of four." Mark 2:3

The mission of Caring Partners is to equip churches all over the world with healthcare to share the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. One vital way Caring Partners accomplishes this mission is by setting up primary care clinics in national churches around the globe.

Because our church partners around the world serve in many different settings, each church-based clinic is unique. From a church located in the middle of the Amazon, with a building made of bamboo poles and a thatched roof, to a large, multi-story facility in a bustling city, our clinic sites can vary tremendously.  And these variations can cause some unique challenges!

For example, our clinic this past June was held in downtown Guatemala City. Similar to any urban setting around the world, real estate is expensive. Our church partner has overcome these costs by maximizing  their small lot by building up - three floors up, in fact!

For church services, it's a great set-up - the children's classes are conducted on the roof, where three small classrooms share the rooftop, along with a large open space, perfect for the kids to move around and play. But, for a medical clinic, it's not always as practical.

During our June clinic, an elderly woman in a wheelchair was one of our medical team's patients. At registration, the woman said she specifically came to the clinic to see our team's dentist, Dr. Alex Gamber, but the problem was Dr. Alex's dental chair and equipment was on the 3rd floor!

Team Leader Rick Lalli called on Dr. Alex to come downstairs to be sure he would be able to help. Sadly, the woman had a multitude of dental problems, but what she really wanted Dr. Alex to fix was her front tooth, which desperately needed filled. With great compassion, Dr. Alex assured her he could help, and our team then went into action.

Like the four companions who carried their friend to Jesus in the Gospel of Mark, Chapter 2, Rick and CPI Team Member Dillon Leisure, along with Marcos and Demas from the Genesaret Church, each grabbed a side of the woman's wheelchair, and carried her up the three floors to Dr. Alex's station. Dr. Alex lovingly cared for her, and was able to save her front tooth. As the team carried her back down the stairs, the woman beamed with delight, smiling for everyone to see. And following her visit to Dr. Alex, the woman was able to visit our "Clinic of the Soul", where she heard about the Great Physician who loved her, and gave His life for her.

 "...I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."   John 10:10

Prayers & Praises

 "I will praise thee, o Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works."  
Psalm 9:1

Since April of this year, Caring Partners missionary team has more than doubled in size! We give God the glory for all He is doing here at our medical ministry. Pray for our team as we come together to plan and prepare for the future; and that we can serve the Lord together in complete unity.

Rick Lalli & Wesley Highley have developed a corporate volunteer project here at Caring Partners called "Restore Community". Pray for Rick & Wesley as they are desiring to connect with companies that want to assist our ministry and our church partners in meeting the physical and spiritual needs of under-served men, women & children here in the Tri-State region. Know a local business that may have some interest in having their employees participate? Contact Rick Lalli here at CPI.

Caring Partners now has Audited Financial Statements! Our ministry has wanted to prepare audited financial statements according to generally accepted accounting principles for many years now, but we needed an automated inventory system for our medical supplies and materials. By God's grace, and with the expert help of CPI missionary Andrew Wienhoff, an automated system was implemented in 2016, and the audit was a result! Would you like to view a copy of these Statements?

Welcome Jon & Karen Lambert!

Jon & Karen

Were you in attendance at Caring Partners April 2017 Banquet? If so - you heard missionaries Jon & Karen Lambert share their heart for medical missions, and their eye-witness account of how CPI and its church partners in Ecuador made a major impact for Christ in that country. 
Our ministry is excited to announce that after more than 20+ years of ministry service in Ecuador, the Lamberts have now returned to the USA, and have joined the ministry team of Caring Partners International. Jon & Karen will serve as Mission Directors, leading medical mission teams around the world. In fact, plans are already in the works for a journey to Ecuador in the summer of 2018. Send Jon & Karen a note and welcome them to CPI!

Every Tuesday evening in July & August, Caring Partners will be hosting a Volunteer Night from 6:30 - 8:00 PM. Come out to our Warehouse Facility on Shotwell Drive in Franklin, Ohio to participate in preparing medical supplies and materials for delivery to the mission field. Thinking about joining us? Please contact CPI missionary Wesley Highley at to let him know you plan to attend.
