Medical Needs for the 2020 Dominican Republic Mission Trip

Medical Needs in the DR

For those that have traveled with us before, you may know that the Score International location in Juan Dolio is the base for our medical outreach. This clinic has grown immensely over the past several years. This provides an incredible opportunity to share the Gospel with each person that enters the clinic or is served through a medical teams in the various villages across the country. Now that the clinic is more well-known and people are traveling from near and far, some up to 2-3 hours, we have developed a GREAT need to fill our depleted supply of over the counter medicine. If you’re traveling to the Dominican Republic on one of our short-term teams or internships consider packing an extra bag and filling it with supplies for our clinic or missionaries. Many things, such as over the counter medication, are much easier and more affordable to purchase in the States. When teams come to serve alongside our missionaries or various ministry partners, we are so grateful. However, we want to make sure that our ministries continue to reach the most people possible even after your team is gone.

You can find a list of immediately needed medicine below:

  • Children’s Tylenol Suspension (Children’s Acetaminophen)
  • Children’s Benadryl (Children’s Diphenhydramine/Allergy relief)
  • Children’s Cold and Cough Syrup
  • Hydrocortisone 1% cream
  • Triple Antibiotic Cream
  • Anti-fungal cream (Clotrimazole/Miconazole)
  • Adult Multivitamins
  • Children’s Chewable (not gummy) Vitamins
  • Infant vitamin drops

Braden Hess Baptism Testimony

Braden Hess was baptized on October 27, 2019  in front of his parents’ church family. Following is his confession of faith in Christ. We pray that you are as encouraged as we are to see the continuing to prove Himself faithful and good.

“I want to be baptized to tell everyone that I am a Christian and I want to grow closer to Christ. I have come to church my whole life but I feel like these past couple years God has grown in me and I have got a lot more out of the bible. Romans 3:23 says “that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” I have sinned and I have fallen short of the glory of God, but God still loves me. This was hard for me to get over because he loves us even when we don’t love him. God has blessed me over and over again sometime I don’t see how that blessing is a good thing at first but then I see how it has helped me with a problem and has helped me to grow closer to God. God has also blessed me with a Christian home that has helped me to understand the gospel and know that God is above us all we do not compare to him.”

If reading this makes you wonder what baptism is and why anyone would even consider doing it…please contact us at office@greenvillegrace.org and allow us to answer your questions!

Dalton Boyatt Baptism Testimony

Dalton Boyatt was baptized on October 13, 2019  in front of his church family. Following is his confession of faith in Christ. We pray that you are as encouraged as we are to see the continuing to prove Himself faithful and good.

“Hello my name is Dalton Boyatt. At a young age I was introduced to Christ but never had a personal relationship with him until 3 years ago. Through my struggles over the years I can see how Christ never left my side. He was always with me, he helped me through brokenness and hardship and with that kept me on a path that led me to him. Since then I have asked Christ into my heart and built upon that relationship with faith and trust. I am choosing to get baptized today to show the love I have for him because he loved us so that he would give his life to die on the cross for us so we could be forgiven. With this I am ready to start a new chapter in my life and continue to build a life that will be centered on the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. “
