We had our last outdoor/off-site community health fair yesterday. St James Church on Broadway in Elmhurst hosted the health fair that was sponsored by City Mission. Patrick, Kareena and Lester are great leaders and were a joy to work with. They love the people of our community and bring a prayerful team spirit that encourages others to serve.
Fifty-eight people were served from 18 different countries of origin. China, India, Colombia, Ecuador, Indonesia, Mexico and the Philippines were the countries most represented. Half of the people were over the age of sixty and we had two patients in their nineties!
Thank you Maya Baker, Lauren Lebo, Colleen, Bing and Amber for carrying the day on behalf of the New Life Community Health Center. People mentioned afterwards that your servant hearts and love for the community was very evident.

Tonight the health center surpassed 12,000 visits. Attached are a few pictures. I'm not sure that the cake we had was very healthy or in keeping with the directives from our recent nutrition seminars.
We first opened in March of 2005 under the leadership of Raffy Costes. Through the years people like Jimmy Nee and Margaret Lettieri carried us with their volunteering. Throughout the years Martha and Toni Andrade, Dr Sanchez, Gloria and Michael Baez, John Peck, Gillian Phillips and Cindy Reeder have provided a stable foundation. There are too many people to mention that have volunteered and faithfully given to bring us to this place.
Today Kristin Moltz, Medical Administrator, and Dr. Amber Featherston-Uwague, Medical Director, are leading us to the next phase in our journey to serve the medical needs of our diverse immigrant community.
Keep us in your prayers and thank you for the part you have played.
