Ministry Spotlight Love in Action Free Health & Dental Clinic
Our Health & Dental Clinic has experienced tremendous growth and God has been doing some amazing things. The health clinic’s expanded hours have doubled the amount of patients per month in its first quarter and it is projected that this number will increase as referral part-partnerships with area agencies are strengthened and more people hear about our services.
Patient stories, like the one in this newsletter (see back), help to confirm the importance of this clinic in our community. The Lord has brought success to the clinic through caring community members who so generously support us with their time, finances, and skill-sets.
Meet Dr. Tom VanWingen.
He has been a faithful volunteer for the past two years at our Operations warehouse where he helps with deliveries and pickups of household goods & donations.
“Truth is, driving the truck and making pickups and deliveries allows me to meet people from the full socioeconomic range of the Tri-Cities. People from all backgrounds are making donaions and welcoming me into their homes. We live in a community of wonderful, generous people. I consider both of my jobs to be a privilege.” Dr. VanWingen is a retired OBGYN and has recently joined the Love in Action Health Clinic to serve in an urgent care role as our afternoon health clinic provider. He still continues to volunteer at Operations and we are so blessed to have him as a part of the team!
