Mission of Hope: Mission Medical Clinic 3
(Photos taken during a Mission of Hope medical clinic in spring of 2010.)
Mission of Hope is a ministry birthed some years ago into the hearts of Errol and Laarni Pitre shortly before Errol was to retire. This page continues telling the story of the latest trip for another USA Team arriving for Mission Medical Clinic 3. The Clinic is worked inside the concrete block church building on the island of Mindoro, managed by Errol and Laarni Pitre, and sponsored by a church on the main island of Manila. This is a "faith work" which emphasizes compassion, evangelizing, and the Gospel. See Errol's latest email. An Evangelical Medical Team (most of it members having worked as part of Mission Medical Clinics 1 and 2) operates out of Manila and will also work in this Clinic. They will be added wiith help from the USA Team and with Christians from the sponsoring church in Manila.
During the days of the clinic over 400 men, women, and children were fed and over 300 accepted Jesus Christ as Savior. Moreover, many boxes of clean used clothes were handed out to children. With the giving of free meals, free haircuts and grooming, candy and trinkets, etc., this clinic is quite an undertaking. Errol and Laarni and Christians from the United States and members of the sponsoring church in Manila desired to give their best to the Lord and to the people in the villages on the island of Mindoro.
Furthermore, some health issues like birth defects, malaria, and sight problems are referred to specialists in the Philippines that will work for little or no cost. When that is not enough, the Pitres try to secure arrangements with doctors in the United States and elsewhere.

Several evenings of the
