Today we arrived at a new church for three days of continued medical missions. There were many more people here for the first day compared with last week and they were already lined up when we drove into the yard. I should mention that we were very blessed with smooth roads last week but this drive is an exercise in physical endurance. The road is under construction and will get better each day we hope. As we walk through the crowds to the church, people extend their hands to greet us and their faces light up with smiles as we greet them in their own language. We begin our work quickly – there are pills to count and nets to organize. The physical needs were more prevalent in this area. While we prayed for many relational issues last week our prayer requests today were largely for physical health. So many people have malaria – especially the children. We prayed for a baby’s goiter, a toddler’s congenital throat defect, sickle cell anemia, tumors, skin conditions, back pain and many who believed they were suffering demonic attacks. Tomorrow promises to be an extremely busy day – the second day is always much busier than the first. The guys will be handling the mission on their own as the women will all be attending the women’s conference. Hold them up in prayer!
