Baptist Medical Mission International
Baptist Medical Missions International (BMMI) led by Dr. Ralph Izzard arrived in Georgia at 3 and 5:45 a.m. this morning. My husband, Jeff Franks was there to meet them and help them get to their destination, the town of Gori (Stalin's birthplace) in the country of Georgia. They finally got settled into their hotel around 7:30 this morning and rested until noon. So today was about purchasing medicines and they had the opportunity to tour the Stalin museum. Please be in prayer for their medical mission starting tomorrow there in the town of Gori. Gori is the place where they were last year when Russia dropped it's first bomb on Georgia. Though things are still very tenuous between the two countries, the BMMI team is hoping for a better outcome to their mission this time around. God has his plan here as well. May these people be used to further His kingdom and help those who don't have good medical care.
