I talked with Pedro this morning. He had a meeting with the specialist who just arrived from Las Vegas. What is needed right now is an intense treatment with the serum HUMAN GAMAGLOBULIN. They need 120g. This is the same medicine that they had to get at the outset, and it cost $600 for just 5g. Without it, she will be in the hospital for months as they slowly treat it. This medicine is not covered by the state insurance. If anyone has a way to get this medicine at a reduced cost or donated, let us know. I think we can get it across the border without any problem. This is a desperate need. Further tests to discover the cause cannot be conducted until her red blood count is normalized. If there is anyway you can help, let us know by writing us at email@example.com.
God bless and please keep praying. We need a miracle.

Juana and I visited Paola yesterday in the General Hospital of Mexicali. She was in good spirits despite the fact that she is bedridden. She doesn't feel sick, but she is in a dangerous situation, where any bump or bruise can prove to be problematic. Her red blood count has gone up and down from 1000 to 9000 under medication, but it is a lot lower than the 150,000 that it needs to be. The current diagnosis is Immune thrombocytopenic purpura, and if you click on the name you will see an article about it. She will be seeing a specialist today who has been out of town, and we hope to have an idea of what the treatment will need to be. I want to thank all who pledged, we have the first hospital and treatment covered for the most part. As I get more news I will let know. - Ken

Members of the Caring Hearts Medical Team, City Government, and the Association for the Blind met together to ceremonially break ground on the School for the Blind. We hope to have it completed by the end of January. We need all the help we can get, if this ministry to these needy people touches your heart, let us know and we will find a way you can help. We will need finances for materials, furniture and teaching tools. Be a part of this new work, write us today.
Well, the annual medical clinic has come and gone, and we thank God for the great results. We gave out 5688 different treatments (Medical, Optical, Dental and Chiropractic) to 4050 individual patients. Best of all, 466 people made sincere commitments to Jesus Christ. Our team of 42 people from the United States combined with volunteers from our church, rehab centers and city government to provide a quick and efficient service for the needy people. All were blessed as God moved in different ways throughout the week. We are already planning for next years clinic, please consider joining us for this exciting ministry. Here are some pictures of what happened during the week.
