It is late Sunday night in Marsabit town. We are preparing to leave at 5 am in the morning to head south through the desert to return to Nairobi. Many on this trip will be forever changed. They have seen things they didn’t know existed. Many have had their hearts broken at seeing what abject poverty looks like and the effect it has on children. Most children here are very small in stature but big eyes and smiles.
The team has had an impact here in Marsabit. Here are the numbers:
Seen in medical camps – 950
Dr. Vincent and Dr. Craig seeing a patient
Charles and Linda taking blood pressures
Peter helping an elderly
Treated by the dentist – 58 (4 cavities were filled and 75 teeth extracted)
Dr. Wills working on a patient
Said yes to Jesus – 19
Jen praying for people
Signed a commitment card to do their part to fight HIV/AIDS – over 500
A pastor signing a commitment card
Many hours spent playing soccer!
Soccer with the boys
The team did great! Everyone worked hard with no complaining even though it was hot and the days were long.
Blessed by the team from Michigan,
