STUTTGART, Ark. – The Arkansas Baptist State Convention (ABSC) Missions Team hosted a medical-dental clinic on Saturday, Sept. 23, at First Baptist Church in Stuttgart.
They saw around 20 patients and had one person come to faith in Christ.
Medical-dental clinics serve as an avenue for the local church to meet needs and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Community volunteers, dentists, and other healthcare workers team up to offer various services, including dental cleanings, tooth extractions, health checks, mammograms and more. Additionally, each patient sits down with a volunteer, who shares with them the word of God.
In total, of the 10 clinics held so far this year, there have more than 100 souls come to Christ.
Earlier this month, on Sept. 9, during a medical-dental clinic at West View Baptist Church in Paragould, they had six people surrender their lives to Christ.
On Aug. 26, 10 people put their trust in Jesus during a medical-dental clinic in Sherwood, where the ABSC Missions Team partnered with Fresh Start Community Church, a church plant sponsored by First Baptist Church in Sherwood.
Nine people gave their lives to Christ on July 15 during an event at Watson Chapel Baptist Church in Pine Bluff.
On June 24, more than 20 accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior during the clinic hosted at the Olive Street campus of First Baptist Church in Rogers. Earlier in June, during a clinic in Oden hosted by the churches of the Caddo River Baptist Association, the team saw 37 patients, two of whom gave their lives to Christ.
During a medical-dental clinic on April 29 at Iglesia Bautista Roca Fuerte (Strong Rock Baptist Church) in Little Rock there were 28 professions of faith.
The next medical-dental clinic is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 7, during the 2023 One Day Acts 1:8 Missions Experience in Monticello. These clinics are provided free through the generous giving of ABSC churches to the Dixie Jackson Arkansas Missions Offering.
