We took a team from UNG to Lake Victoria over the weekend to
hold a medical clinic forthe people in
We camped in tents.I
was the camp cook.I considered it “glamping”
because I had a gas stove, a table and water close by!
Also, Pastor Nicholas made a great little hut for taking
bucket baths (the hut on the right).It
Carolynn’s first patient was a boy who had broken his wrist
a week ago by falling out of a tree!
Unfortunately, at this point, the only thing we could do was splint it.
Kim made a splint out of tongue depressors and duct tape.
Carolynn and Mendy wrapped it up.
Pastor Nicholas took me to see a mother who had four month
old triplets. Incredibly, she did not know she was having triplets until they
were born! I can’t imagine how that day went – “Here’s one.Wait, here is another one!Wait, wait, one more is coming!”Their names are Jacob, Joseph and Isaac.
We checked the 40 children that live at the school
They found out that Shane was
washing feet so they all started pointing out wounds on their feet and ankles.
On Sunday, Galya taught Sunday School. The team helped her
teach the motions of the Bible verse.
Then, we had church. There was much singing and dancing.
Later, Shane shared his testimony and the Gospel.
That afternoon, we saw some about 100 of the local people,
adults and children alike.
Shane shared the Gospel with everyone that come in.
While the clinic went on, Galya played games with the children and taught them a Bible story.
Nicholas has rabbits – lots of them.The babies live in the basin and the mama’s
just hop around the place.
We held an anti natal-clinic at the VOE Medical Center on
Friday.We were planning for about 60
pregnant women.Over 100 came! The women
were taught that their babies were not accidents; God has a plan for
everything.They were also taught how to
properly care for their children both before and after birth.
It was a great day of teaching.
We had guests from the Bugeri District Ministry of Health
come and teach onhealthy practices for
We also had some folks from the UNG nursing program that
taught some of the classes.
