Swaziland Day 1

No internet service. I'm emailing this from my BB to my blog address so it is short and limited. Not even sure this will get out. We went to the very first project ever opened years ago and where we had built out medical clinic over 5 years ago. 307 patients were seen after a late start. A few very sick children, one who was sent to a hospital and one child who was severely neurologically devastated from birth. One who need her foot amputated due to progressive gangrene. All that in addition to 5 hours of lectures to the HCWs, nutritional assessments, dental hygiene, VBS, spiritual counseling, pharmacy, all patients entered into our database using bar codes, reading glasses for the elderly and more. The team didn't blink an eye. For now, everyone here sends hello to their loved ones. We were promised a working internet server tomorrow. We'll see. Tomorrow is another day, another test of our endurance and a test of faith.
In all things give thanks,
