During the weekend of October 13th, a team of QuestCare volunteers partook in Watermark’s Unashamed Weekend; an in-town mission trip designed to help participants catch a vision for how they can serve and reach their city.
QuestCare volunteers and staff spent Friday night visiting locations around the city to pray over specific topics like abortion, refugee care, college students, homelessness, and sex trafficking.
After worshipping together that night, enjoying some fun and games, and getting some rest, they then woke up on Saturday morning early to help with Brother Bills Helping Hand (BBHH) in West Dallas. Through BBHH our team went door to door in West Dallas, serving elderly residents with grocery delivery and conversation. This was one of the most impactful times for our participants; seeing the men and women we were serving in their homes and sensing how much a simple thing like conversation blessed them.
On Saturday afternoon our team was sent out to uptown to share the gospel with men and women we met, and then wrapped up with a group dinner to share stories and attend Awaken in Klyde Warren Park.
On Sunday morning we got to join Concord, a predominantly African-American church in South Dallas, for their services. This gave us the chance to see what the body of Christ looks like across different geographies and demographics within our own city!
So why did medical clinic volunteers go on a weekend like this?
At the core of the medical services we provide is a desire to share with our patients about the God that created them and point them to the eternal healing He can provide. During a weekend like this our volunteers are given the chance to practice sharing that truth and to catch a vision and heart for the city they’re called to serve.
You can see some of their stories from the weekend in the following blogs!
If you serve with us and think this looks like fun- it was! We’ll be doing this as a clinic team annually, make sure to watch your email to join! Until then, you can continue to practice sharing the gospel here at the clinic or join Unashamed any month on our own that they do a trip! Check out the details on Watermark’s website.
