The mega clinic idea should be done more and more…true missionary work! Well done!


Yes indeed. I could be wrong, but it is my understanding that they are planning to have at least one event like this in each union before the 2020 General Conference. I participated in the Bay Area event, a couple of years ago and while the community received services that perhaps they could not have otherwise obtained, I too was totally blessed.
