Dear Friends, Family, and Supporters,
It’s been a busy and wonderful month at Sheep Clinic!
Many supporters, volunteers and patients came out on November 5th to celebrate our 5th anniversary with cake, punch, and stories. It was a delightful evening. Many came downstairs to tour the clinic while we were open for patients. Several people signed up to become volunteers; and we received an unexpected donation of 12 Digital Blood Pressure Cuffs from Phillips’ Respironic! Giant Eagle, Shop n Save, and Sam’s Club all showed their support by donating the cake and punch for the party. Praise the Lord!
On Saturday December 5th, the launch of our Turtle Creek Clinic was a huge success! Volunteers from Dream Center Church and Sheep Clinic showed up early to go out into the community to pass out flyers, put up posters, and talk to people about the new free clinic. Every volunteer who came out to serve at the clinic came out trained on the new EHR system and passionate about caring for the Turtle Creek community. Each and every one was a tremendous asset and all are valuable team members. Dr. Marshall and his daughter have been such a blessing to us in their time, generosity, and use of their office space. So excited to see what God is going to do in the months and years to come!
Turtle Creek also gave us an opportunity to have a trial run with our new Electronic Health Record (EHR) System. God is stretching us to dream big! EHR was the next step in providing the best quality primary care we can give to our patients. Our volunteers have been scrambling to learn computers and the new computer program. (We have used paper for the last 5 years!) We begin the transition to the new EHR system Thursday, Dec. 10th. God has raised up leaders and trainers, new alliances and new volunteers, to help us take this next, giant step. God is so good! Over the next several months, please be praying for us as we make this change in the clinic. We need God’s help, wisdom, and peace.
Thank you for your tremendous generosity in making it possible for Sheep Inc HCC to minister in our communities. As we all work together, we make the world a better place and shine the light of Jesus into a dark and desperate world. We are grateful for the privilege of your partnership.
We pray that you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
