Three hundred. That's how many patients we examined, prescribed medications for, and got to know. Many were prayed with, many got tested for HIV, and many more were given another chance to live a healthier life. We saw some interesting patholgy today: cutaneous larva migrans (crawling worm under the skin), weird rashes, heart diseases, and varying degrees of malnutrition. The wind was picking up in the afternoon and we were seeing patients in a lot od dust. Children were coughing and wheezing and the nebulizer got a work out. A leg abscess was drained and a house visit was made. Just another clinic day in Africa. Just another day of love.

In all things give thanks,
