Dear Friends, Family, and Supports,
So many exciting things are happening at Sheep Clinic!
Sheep Inc Health Care Center was highlighted in a comprehensive article in the Tribune Review and The Times Express in September. Between the article and the recent launching of our new website (SheepIncClinic.org), we have had a rush of possible new volunteers – an MD, CRNP, RN, Staff, and a possible translator! Praise the Lord! And patients have been able to find our clinic as well! We are so thankful.
The article also highlighted our 5th anniversary in November next month. The 5th Anniversary Cake and Punch Open House will be November 12th, from 5:00pm–8:00pm. We are having the party on a Thursday evening so all our friends, family, and supporters can see the clinic up and running and helping people. Please come and celebrate with us! We couldn’t do what we do without you!
This week at the clinic, we are offering Financial Wellness Workshops on Savings and Budgeting 101 in collaboration with Fifth Third Bank. Our patients and our church family have been invited. There will be two workshops, at 6pm and 7pm. You are welcome to attend. Just come to the clinic and we will direct you from there.
Our board approved switching the clinic over to an Electronic Health Records (EHR) system. We are in for an adventure! We will be converting from paper records to computer. So it will be a total upheaval of all our processes and procedures in running the clinic. We will all be learning new things. By making this move, we will be able to improve the quality of medical care we give to our patients.
The board also approved the opening of an off-site clinic at Dream Center Church in Turtle Creek. We are waiting for final approval from Calvary United Church of Christ where DCC meets. We are hoping to open that clinic December 5th. The clinic would be open once a month on the first Saturday of the month (possibly), preceding the Dream Center Service at 6pm. We are so thrilled to be seeing this dream realized and coming to fruition! Volunteers are already stepping forward to be a part of it.
With all these good things happening, could you pray with us? We need guidance, wisdom and favor. We want to go God’s way every step of the way. Thank you so much! Thank you for being a part of our team!
