What a full day! We began our day by joining the staff for a prayer walk thru the nations. Praying for Gods presence to be felt by all! We then traveled to a nearby town and held an HBB class under the trees in Lyuancha. After the class and enjoying lunch with the students we were off to make some "political visits." We then returned to our home base and enjoyed an authentic meal in an African village as children sang and danced by the beat of African drums. The sun was setting as the full moon was rising over the African horizon. God couldn't have been more present in nature then he was tonight!
Today was a very full and rewarding day. We began at Arthur Davison children's hospital. We taught a class Of 10 nurses and 10 doctors. They were very receptive and our time was well spent. We were given a tour of their NICU and faced with the reality that they have one nurse for 35 babies on nights ( we decide we will never complain again about a heavy patient load!) We then enjoyed a African meal with them. The team loaded up in the van and we were off to childlife touch orphanage to enjoy the children. We examined the children and were encouraged at how healthy and happy they were. It was a great day but very exhausting!
Team Africa. We began with breakfast outside our rooms under the trees. We then took a walking tour of the place where we are staying. The area is all self sustained and the staff are amazing. They teach the village children at the school and also teach the villager how to use their resources with out waste. We taught a class of 20 health care workers HBB. They represented about 10 surrounding rural health clinics. Dr. Marc then taught a class of 60 women from the village. Then day was exhausting but fulfilling!!
Team Africa today was our large clinic at the village school. We did complete physicals on 213 kids as well as eye exams, malaria testing, HB testing, wound care, and urine testing and the team worked amazingly well together! God is so good! The kids were very appreciative. Tomorrow we will teach an HBB class to the health care workers from the local clinic and village.Thanks for all your prayers and support!
