Hard days work
It was hot today, and the team were such hard workers. Diana was the brick moving star! Brian and Benny gave it all, moving bricks, mixing mortar and generally impressing the local workers. Holly was absolutely covered with red dust from hauling these oversized bricks from one side of the yard to the other. Jenny loved working with the team and said it was the hardest work she has ever done;
We set up in a small empty building in a very outback area, Kevin and carol shared an 8x8 room with Carol dispensing medications out the window.
The people here speak lua, not swahili, so we were relying completely on translators to help us figure out what was wrong, talk with the patients then explain the meds. We had several local nurses a lab tech and several counsellors with us. Ron was in charge of weighing babies and generally directing traffic. I was taking down names and helping get symptoms to try to make Dr. Kevin's job a little easier.
Tonight we decided to do something a little less physical, so Benny and diana pulled Pictionary out of their magical suitcase and, well, the girls soundly defeated the boys... yay girls!! we love you all and so appreciate all your prayers and encouragements.
