The Betesda Clinic in Wichanzao has continually been blessed with doctors and other health care professionals that come to serve the people of Peru. Our most recent visitors were Dr. Kris Whitehead and Chad Brown, PT. We were so thankful to have these men join us and work in our clinic and serve the greater health care community. Dr. Whitehead gave a lecture at a local hospital and also assisted in surgery. They both worked several days in our local clinic and attended a meeting of young Christian medical students. We have enjoyed facilitating this energetic group of young physicians-in-training and offer them a Christian perspective to their profession.

The week that these men spent with us in Trujillo was a great blessing to many people, patients and medical personnel alike. We are so thankful for the sacrifices they made to be with us for a week and share their time and talent with us.
Thank You Kris and Chad for your visit! (pictured with clinic staff)
