Peru Medical Mission Trip

October 11-18, 2023

On Oct. 11, 2023, a team from First Baptist Church in Oxford, MS traveled to Peru for a mission trip serving peoples living along the Amazon River.  Each day, they took a boat down the river to minister to the needs of those living in Gallito and the Loreto Region of Peru.  Two of the BMDF members of this team were Jeff Holeman and Pat Barrington.  Evangelist for the team was Greg Hurt, pastor of Highland Baptist Church, Senatobia, MS.  During the trip, the team visited four different villages along the Amazon.  Within those four villages, they held medical clinics at five different locations. The total number of patients seen was 461.  There were 76 professions of faith recorded (70 through the clinic and 7 through worship services).  The team was also able to pass out 354 Gospel tracts and 85 copies of the Gospel of John.
