Day Three

I continue to be impressed by this team. They are the cream of the crop in their fields. They range in age from 25-45 with most being around thirty years old. They are very well educated. Most speak two languages with several who speak three. They would be considered privileged financially. They’ve taken time off work and left families and friends at home. They have the confidence that they bring the kingdom of God to the schools, hospitals and clinics where we go.

They take Matthew 25 to heart and often quote it. They place a high value on caring for the children, the poor, the widows, orphans and foreigners. Their compassion for the least of thee brings tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat as I write. There is a palpable presence of God in the room that is unmistakable. I told Kristen Levitt, Director of Project Partner, that I wish I could get everyone I know here to experience this.

We’ve spent two days at the same school working in the morning and the afternoon with the children. We gave routine screenings to 190 students yesterday. Today we split up into three teams. One team went to a new hospital to us to see patients. That team will begin teaching their expertise over the next few days. Another team did another 90 screenings. While the third team taught in the classrooms. We’ve had rain every day. We are praying for no rain because that same school has scheduled an outdoor assembly for our team to do a drama sketch. See, when you sign up to pray you too can have a role.
