The Tiny People Matter Team awoke to another lovely morning in Kasama, Zambia. How blessed are we! We started the day with a nice breakfast outside with a warm breeze blowing under a sunny sky.
After breakfast it was off to work.
Today we did a morning and an afternoon class, so 8 hours of teaching altogether with barely a break to eat our sandwiches. They just kept going to accomplish the mission. These ladies are like energizer bunnies. We have certified a total of 115 people in Kadama! This team which God has assembled is such a blessing especially as we have added the Helping Mother Survive Program and have Amy here with her expertise as a Certified Nurse Midwife and Essential Care For Every Baby with Sara here as a nutritionist and breast feeding counselor. Everyone has added their knowledge to the teaching seamlessly.
With Marge on the team, and her years of experience as an educator and adult practitioner, she has given us a more rounded team and given us the opportunity to reach more people.Today rain was forecasted but God provide an incredible day with slight African breezes and we were able to hold all the parts of the class out side .... what a blessing.
One of my responsibilities is to make sure our birthing back packs get distributed among the clinics in a way that makes the most sense. This is sometimes difficult as EVERYONE wants a lot. Leonard and the provincial nursing officer helped see that we got enough kits to the clinics based on average monthly births and distance from main hospitals.
We have been good stewards of the money raised and items donated. I am ready to do my happy dance as we have successfully distributed the “goods”
Today was a day to feel grateful , thankful and blessed!
From Linda and Team Zambia
