Mission of Hope recently acquired 55 acres of land from the government in Bercy, which is about 30 minutes north of their main campus. On this land, they are planning to build a school, a medical clinic, a church, an orphanage, and a conference center – a planned community. Just like Florida!
In the meantime, Mission of Hope is occasionally sending teams to the property to run mobile medical clinics. People in the community hear that there will be a chance to see a doctor for free, and they flock to what is currently the only building on the property – a cinder block hut – to line up and wait.
Once their paperwork is completed and their vital signs have been taken, they’re sent across the rock lot to have their private appointment in this:
This is a Clinic in a Can – an air-conditioned, single-wide trailer with two consultation rooms and a pharmacy. After they have been seen by the doctor, they head to the pharmacy to pick up any meds they may have been prescribed, as well as a goody bag filled with soap, a toothbrush and toothpaste, and – if you’re between the ages of 15 and 60 – 6 condoms. Along with very explicit “how-to” instructions.
I mean, doesn’t it ever cross your mind? Sometimes don’t you wonder who the lucky illustrator of contraceptive clip-art is?
As for me, I snuggled with this chunker for awhile.
I tested for Bieber Fever by singing “Baby” – and ALL THE KIDS SANG ALONG.
And finally, I peed in a bucket.
I did it just so I could say “I peed in a bucket” on my blog. Feel free to congratulate me on my moxie.
