“Actions, not words” was not only the annual theme for William Carey University as a whole; it was also a call to action for 11 Carey nursing students.
The students, along with Assistant Professor of Nursing Felicia Browning, traveled to Villa de San Francisco, Honduras, from May 24-31 on an evangelical mission trip. The Carey team joined 46 others from multiple cities in Alabama and Mississippi in an effort organized by Baptist Medical and Dental Mission International to share the Gospel and assist the needy in the small Honduras municipality.
During the trip, the group presented the Gospel to over 3,000 people and also distributed 1,000 Bibles, 376 copies of John’s Gospel, 2,800 religious tracts and 780 salvation bracelets. The team operated a medical clinic that treated 2,877 patients and distributed clothing and shoes while a pharmacy filled 18,299 prescriptions.
