This morning we made our way to the local public hospital with some of the youth group from the Church to visit the children in various areas, including HIV/AIDS, orthapedics, surgery, infant care, dialysis, physical therapy, and the cancer chemotherapy ward. Whew. Included among the children was one parent who came up to me as I came in to check on the rest of the group. It seems she regonized me from a visit some time ago (she mentioned as much as two years), and wanted me to pray for her daughter again...as she has had one surgery as can be seen from the picture, and is to have another on Tuesday or Wednesday. She would appreciate all our prayers for her daughter. There were many such stories as you can imagine there, that is just one of the many hearts that have been touched, are touched, and are being touched through that portion of the ministry and by those that have been there when God's face was needed.
This group from Christ's Church leaves tomorrow. It seems like they just got here! As usual, we will be sad to see them go, but also grateful for their time here, and the time together as a family these coming weeks before I head off to the US.
