FIRST SCOTS PRESBYTERIAN – Charleston, SC

FOUNTAIN INN PRESBYTERIAN – Fountain Inn, SC

MISSION TRIP TO IQUITOS – MAY 2009

One of the main reasons for our trip to Iquitos was to provide First Scots Presbyterian Church of Charleston an overview of mission opportunities in Iquitos.  There were 7 members from First Scots and 5 from Fountain Inn who went.

1

We visited several churches and helped at the hospital for the indigent in Iquitos.

We had a one-day Bible School for the children of Iquitos Presbyterian Church, the SCOTA schools in Iquitos and in Nauta, and the Nuevo Valentin Church.  We presented the story of Jesus, the Good Shepherd.  The children had various crafts that went with the story.  One of those was a dot-to-dot picture of a sheep. In the class for the blind children at the SCOTA school, their teacher took cord and outlined the picture and the children were able to fill it in with cotton balls.

2

We distributed anti-parasite medication and vitamins to the children at Nuevo Valentin, Tamshiyacu, and Nauta.

We planted shrubs to stop erosion at Nauta SCOTA.

We purchased supplies (diapers, Enfamil, Desitin) for the infant ward at the hospital.  We painted cribs for the hospital nursery and bought material for nursery curtains.

We helped with supplies for the Senior Center in Iquitos and with construction at the 9 October School.
