New clinic to provide care to people lacking health insurance

In the midst of the debate regarding health care for the uninsured there emerges a group that is doing more than just talk. Faith Family Clinic of San Antonio will open soon to provide quality, affordable medical care to the working uninsured. Their mission statement reads, “Faith Family Clinic exists to show and share the love of Jesus Christ by providing health and wellness services to the underserved.”

The clinic is made possible through generous donations of money, services and time. This is not a new phenomenon. Most hospitals throughout the world have been started by churches or other religious groups.

While the actual number of Americans lacking health insurance is debatable, the fact that there are too many is not. Christians have seen this as an opportunity to show the love of Jesus Christ in a practical way and have started clinics like this around the country.

Faith Family Clinic is currently taking applications for their first patients. Cost will be from $10 - $50 depending on family size and income.

May God bless and multiply this ministry.
