So, exciting news! Our real medical camp in the province since I got here!!! The medical students were over yesterday and so we are taking advantage of the holiday that is coming Sept 24 and we are going to do the camp! :) YAY!!! I got more medicines from Nolan's friend and so I just need to sort through everything and sunday I will teach them what all the meds are for. We worked out how we are going to do it and they are so excited and so am I. Just the other day one of the Rhea girls interested in becoming a doctor was saying she wanted a volunteer project and hehe! Here it is :) And I was wanting my resident coming for her international rotation to be here and now she will and it's just before the ARMS team comes. So YAY!! things are really perfect!!!
So Saturday Michael and I had the big talk saturday about the future of the center and it was soooo good! We are both on the same page with the same heart. Both our dreams will come true and there is room for each of us to move on and keep the center going! Is God good or what! :) I have to say I was a little nervous but it was really good for us. We really got to talk. I just love his heart.
I just got a call from Gateway asking when I was free to meet the medical students who want me to lead them in a bible study :) So just when I thought I didn't have time for more, there is! This week has potentially 4-5 trainings! One of the centers will end tomorrow and I haven't even gone over the material since America where I finished it. hehe! But another thing to do today and I am so excited. I am excited to see what God has instore.
This saturday I led church. I had planned on something else, but in the morning I spent some time with God (which was sooo good! I think without it I wouldn't have made it through the weekend) I decided to share my testimony. I then asked them to share their life story. I was really surprised at their reactions to each others stories and how much pain is in the group, even in the guys. It breaks your heart. I was also surprised that R volunteered to share her story. She actually had to leave school when she was 13 and in 2nd grade. Her family had financial difficulties. Then she started attending church and started to believe and her parents threatened to disown her. She found out about a center that provided vocational training. She wanted to go and her parents refused but she went and she was disowned from the family. She prayed for reconcilation and her family has reconciled :) She is really happy she is where she is now. I know she left a lot of details out, but I was so impressed she shared. I have never seen her so rapt with attention as she was when I was sharing my testimony and after hearing hers I see why. When I went over to the Rhea's yesterday she was beaming. She's learning to read, growing in God and happy. It really is about Saving Each One and I love it!
Yesterday was super busy. Church in the morning, rushed home and ate and the medical students came and I got a consult call at the same time. The students were over for over 4 hours! AHH! we were all so tired but I think with a little more work and practice they will make amazing trainers and can take over for me. I was impressed. They worked hard and memorized and did really good. I am looking forward to taking them to the places and starting. I even sent out an email asking one of the shelters if they will be guinea pigs for them :) And I think I can line up another! :) And with Michael running the center soon without me, I can do more with them :)
Of course all work makes me tired so both saturday and sunday God had me go meet people just to relax. No agenda. And eventhough I didn't want to, I am glad I went. It was just what I needed to be reset :) Yesterday I lost horribly at sorry and made a lot of people angry as I viciously sent them back home when they were almost safe. hehe! loved it! No mercy! :) hehe!!
I love my life! I think the mouse has disappeared and even the lixa
