Today at the church in Lira the doctors saw many people and one girl who had a growth in the throat we were able to send immediately to the hospital.
Doug and Michael went out prior to lunch and prayed under our new prayer tents. We were running into the normal requests until we had a mother and daughter. The daughter may have been 9 or 10. They came over for prayer. The daughter was suffering from TB but was being treated but both were HIV positive. It was the first time I can remember a child with HIV. It was so sad. We prayed with young men needing job. Family issues over land and money. Many dealing with nightmares.
After lunch went sent the "A" team to pray. Debbie, Nathalie and Karen went out and wow is all I can say. One woman came to them with pains in her legs and unable to move her fingers. During the prayer God was healing her and she felt no pain in her legs and she was able to move her fingers and hand. They then moved onto a family dealing with demons and nightmares. The Holy Spirit was working and they brought someone to know Jesus. They were out there 3 hours praying for people. We continuously had people wanting prayer.
As we were handing out nets a 7 or 8 year old boy who had just seen the doctors was also HIV positive. It is heart wrenching that these children are dealing with a disease that they did not cause.
The doctors were still finishing with patients as we ended at 5:30pm today. It was a great blessing to have the peace and smoothness to the process of the doctors seeing and treating many patients. Many sick little babies came including twin girls who were not more than 6 months old. Tomorrow will be Day 2 at the same church. The crowds will be larger and the needs greater. God may have a lot in store for us this week. Please pray for everyone we come into contact with. We are thankful to all who contributed because the need is real and the help to the people is immensely appreciated. Lives are changed here.
God Bless Have a wonderful week.
PS - As a quick side note Donna did an amazing portrayal of the Baboon that was on our car as we were letting it cross the road on our way to Lira. The baboon decided it liked the orange soda on the front dashboard more than crossing the road. What perhaps was left out of the previous blog was that we were all asleep and Debbie woke up to the car swerving to get the Baboon off and she was screaming which woke the rest of us up. Just a clarification.
