Colombia Medical Needs Drive

Help make a big difference in the lives of Colombian families in impoverished areas.

Pastor Leonel Ortiz is the network leader for church planting in Colombia. SRC is sending a team to Viavicencio to work with Pastor Ortiz, his wife Belgica and daughters Claudia (DDS) and Gigliola (MD) to do a medical/dental/eye clinic and a VBS for the families of two church plants and as an outreach to the surrounding communities.

Please bring new items to the church office by June 18th, and we’ll deliver them on our medical mission trip June 24th - July 1st.

And remember to keep the needy, the Ortiz family and the SRC team in your prayers!
