Christian care of the Elderly has always been the main focus at Bethshean. We provide state of the art care for all elderly ladies in need. Plans are currently in the works to add an additional wing for elderly men, also.
Undoubtedly, God uses any situation or person to plant a vision in a servant’s heart. This is exactly what occurred over 40 years ago when Cris Garcia saw a blind, bare-footed elderly lady standing on the side of the road, an elderly lady named little Rose, an outcast in a strong Catholic town because of her Christian beliefs. The sight she saw was enough to trigger the vision that is now a reality. Cris took Rose home, birthing the concept of the Bethshean Nursing Home.
There are between 10-20 elderly living at the home. During the summer time, the elderly rejoice with mission groups who come to visit with them, do crafts with them, and spiritually uplift them. Ana Grisel Martinez is the home director.
Medical Exam Rooms
Bethshean has a goal of equipping three Medical examination rooms in the new Clinic. It is estimated each room will cost up to $10,000 per room. We are nearly one third of the way of reaching this GOAL.
Every February involves a dedicated team of Doctors and Nurses forming a medical team, then heading across the Mexican border to Estancia De Animas.
It's amazing how much work and effort from each team member is involved to make these visits a success.
Today, we are so close to working out of a fully functioning Clinic located right next to our Nursing Home. Please help us by giving generously to assist us in our efforts to furnish the Clinic with the needed medical equipment. Combined with your Prayers and Offerings, we will meet the needs of the surrounding communities for many years to come.
Dental Exam Rooms
As in the case of the Medical examination rooms, the Clinic also requires Dental Exam Rooms. The Dental equipment for these rooms is more expensive and will require nearly $15,000 per room to furnish. At least two Dental rooms will be required, and we are nearly half-way to our GOAL.
Good Dental Health is as important as your Physical Health. In the poor regions of Mexico, a visit to a dentist is often viewed as a last resort. Dr. Webb, and his team where they can during their annual visit, but know that one weeks time is not enough.
We plan on having two fully equipped Dental Offices in the new clinic when it opens in the spring. We are half way to our goal of $30,000 but still need your help. Please Pray for us, and Smile when you write us a big check!
Through out the year, Bethshean offers as many Seminars as possible the ministers, and elders of the churches. Part of our ministry to help them grow and mature spiritually. If your Church in interested in Hosting, or assisting us in preparing one, please contact us ASAP.
