First clinic

dana.benson@standrewsowensound.org

After an early wake up, we had a 6:30 am breakfast of porridge, a favourite of many.   Following our devotions led by Ann, we departed for our first medical mission close to 2 hours away. 

Upon our arrival, we unloaded our medical supplies and equipment for the clinic as approximately 50 people needing our assistance waited patiently.  Over the 2.5 hours, some served inside while others entertained and got to know the community members by playing soccer, skipping, frisbee and making crafts. Stuffed animals and hand made dolls were an instant hit and the clothing offered caused a happy line up extending from the Sunday school room to the church. 

The clinic wrapped up shortly after lunch and the extra time we had this afternoon was spent with young community members leading us up the extremely high, steep, thorny 90 minute trek up the mountain overlooking the village. The view was beautiful and magical. 

We had a great dinner of spicy spaghetti and the "boys and Sarah " played man tracker before reflections.  

We are sper excited for tomorrow's zip lining adventure.
