SIM Project Highlight - Project Walkabout

I've been trying to highlight a project that SIM runs around the world every now and then and this is (as we say in Australia) a real beauty! The Tan family have been in Bolivia with SIM for a number of years now and they have the most fascinating way of doing their medical ministry for Bolivians.

(from the SIM Australia website)

"Project Walkabout

Take five Aussies, throw them in a van, add faith, prayer and, oh yes, medical supplies. Drop them into the middle of Bolivia’s stunning Andean valleys and what do you get? PROJECT WALKABOUT. The hoped for results: better health care and church growth. Mission today is innovative, faith-packed, and sacrificial......................God gave Lawrence and Liling a dream to take a mobile clinic to these outlying areas to teach and train medical personnel to provide better health care for the largely Quechua population.

In March this year they took delivery of a mobile clinic which will be their home for three weeks of each month. With its mini laboratory, ultrasound machine and medical supplies they will work in two needy municipalities in rural Bolivia."

There is of course a lot more to this story so if you would like to read the rest and see a few more photos then you can go to this page on the SIM Australia website.
