Carlos & Aracelis Reyes
Carlos and Aracelis are Nicaraguan doctors that serve the people of rural León with medical missions. They spend a great deal of time serving their community at Clinica Carlitos, which is a clinic/pharmacy located just outside of the city of León where medical consultations are offered for less than $3. This price includes certain types of medications as well. They feel a calling to work with people using their gifts are healers, but they also use this opportunity to share the Gospel with folks while visiting the clinic. They are an amazing blessing to their community and people literally walk for hours to receive care from this couple, and their love for their people is palpable.
Most folks don't ever get the chance to see what goes on behind the scene in the medical field, but there is a mountain of work to be done there are well, such as handling the logistics that pertain to filing documentation with Nicaragua's Ministry of Health in every region that the CFCI Nicaragua Medical Missions Department operates in. They also handle the discernment process to decide which churches to work with when medical brigades, both national and international, are in the planning stages, which is yet another facet of the work they do with CFCI. The brigades require a lot of careful planning, procurement of equipment, personnel, medications, as well as training for those from the churches and communities that wish to volunteer in this enterprise.
