Medical Missions

The week of January 21-29, Dr. Jackson and his nurse, Steve Spry went on a medical missions trip to El Salvador with Calvary Lutheran Church. The team set up medical clinics, built swing sets, and provided crafts for children.

In total, they traveled with a team of locals to six different locations and saw 100-200 patients each day in their clinic.

“The people of El Salvador were extremely grateful and made us feel at home, wherever we went,” said Dr. Jackson, who has traveled to El Salvador several times over the years. “I am so thankful to be a part of MCJR, where serving people all over the world is a primary and fundamental focus.”

Below are some photographs of Dr. Jackson, his wife Denise, Steve Spry, and the beautiful people of El Salvador.
