A free medical clinic in the Dallas-Fort Worth area is getting a significant financial boost to fund its expansion, according to a recent article by the Fort Worth Report:

“When Tillie Burgin thinks about Mission Arlington, she is reminded of the Book of Acts in the Bible.

“’It’s a miracle of what God did in the Book of Acts. He fed them. He healed them,’ Burgin said, referring to the stories following the four Gospels’ lives and how the Holy Spirit empowered them to spread their faith. ‘We hope that message gets across as well, to use Mission Arlington to get to know him.’

“Burgin said she looks forward to Mission Arlington serving more people in Tarrant County after receiving a $125,000 donation from the Baptist General Convention of Texas, also known as Texas Baptists. Julio Guarneri, executive director of the organization, presented the check in May to Mission Arlington. The funds will be used to help expand the faith-based nonprofit organization’s free health care clinic.

“The Bob Mann Medical Clinic has offered free health care to residents without health insurance or who can’t afford high-dollar medical supplies such as hearing aids, wheelchairs and crutches. The clinic operates under a first-come, first-served basis. Patients can visit with any of the 32 volunteer doctors and nurses who come from a variety of medical disciplines like pediatrics, orthopedics and chiropractic.”
