FAME

By dorsey

Last week we had the honor and pleasure of hosting another FAME medical team. As usual, they were a phenominal group, blessing us with their refreshing, humble hearts and reflecting the love of Jesus to us as well as the Dominicans. We worked in 5 different locations and touched and treated almost 1000 people. The most memorable for me was working in the prison. We were told by the warden that we were the first medical group ever to come to the prison. Many of the inmates had not seen a doctor since incarceration, if ever.  A tour of the prison left an impression of complete despair and lack of hope, with overcrowding and almost unlivable conditions. Only Jesus could provide hope in such an environment, and that is what FAME brought to the prison. I am sure that this is only the beginning of our work there.  Thank you FAME for being such great examples of Christ and for putting others before yourselves. You have laid up many treasures in heaven and have made an impact for eternity. Photos can be seen at FAME website, www.fameworld.org

Dr Dorsey and Julie,

Only a few days have passed and I am sure we all could use a few more hours of sleep (you included). Wow, what an opportunity to be used by God to share with you in person!

Thank you for the example you both are to the Dominican people. FAME is encouraged to be part of what the Lord is doing through you.

I look forward to connecting with you again either here in the states or in the DR. God bless you,

Shane
