2 Timothy 4:7 

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."

Thursday was our final day at the hospital. We starting the morning off with devotion and then headed to the hospital to see the remaining patients! The second half of the day consisted of cleaning and packing up. We finished Thursday night with a dinner hosted at the house of the chef from the Hospital. He and his wife graciously provided dinner for our team in their beautiful home. It was a night of fellowship, reflecting on the week, the hospital, the work, the memories, but most importantly, the patients. Every team member was given a certificate for their hard work, dedication, and selflessness. The night ended with dancing and cheers in celebration.

In total, our surgical team saw 80 patients and performed 124 procedures. Our dental team saw 80 patients and had 22 surgical procedures. And finally our wheel chair team saw 126 patients, distributed 119 wheelchairs, and built 134 wheelchairs. Our wheelchair team set new records for Faith In Practice!     `    

After a short nights sleep, the team work up Friday and had our final devotional. We reflected on our experience, were encouraged to cherish our memories and to remember that God is never finished with us! We then drove to Antigua where everyone split up into various activities, followed by dinner at various restaurants. It was a great afternoon and evening to end off a week of hard work. Saturday morning, after breakfast and goodbyes, the team headed back to the states!
