Nicaraguan team commissioned for trip

Temple members join members of the Nicaraguan Medical Mission team for a commissioning prayer.

Temple Baptist Church has commissioned the people who will travel to Nicaragua for the 2011 medical mission trip. The ceremony came at the conclusion of the Aug. 14 evening worship service. Dr. Rick Byargeon, senior pastor (and a member of the group), introduced each person on the team as he or she came to the front of the sanctuary. At the conclusion of the introductions, Temple members came forward to join the group in a demonstration of prayerful support for the ministry.

The 21-member group includes medical professionals, ministers and laypeople. During the Aug. 20-26 trip, they will treat both spiritual and physical needs of people in a poverty-stricken area of Nicaragua. While some share the Gospel, others will diagnose and treat a variety of health needs, including use of medicine and medical supplies provided by money donated by Temple members and friends.

Last year’s Nicaragua Medical Mission Team treated more than 1,000 people.

Please pray for the mission team and for the people they will help during their time in Nicaragua. Members of the group are as follows:

  • Dwight Anderson
  • Helen Boersma
  • Mike Brister
  • Wayne Bunn
  • Rick Byargeon
  • Andy Carter
  • Connie Eagles
  • Gray Hipp
  • Katie Hipp
  • Donna Hood
  • Norlyn Hyde
  • Pam Moore
  • John King
  • Pam Morris
  • Larry Neal
  • Jennifer Parker
  • Michelle Shively
  • Nancy Smith
  • Tommy Smith
  • John Ward
  • Sheri Whiteside

Members of Temple's Nicaragua Medical Mission Team line up as Dr. Rick Byargeon talks about their upcoming trip.
