July 2013 Trip: Medical Camp

Jambo from Kenya!
It is Friday already!  We are all still very happy and healthy! Lots of Kenyan and American laughter, hugs, handshakes. We have seen over 300 people in an organized, stress-free manner thanks to
Clement, Peter's brother, who is here overseeing everything!  Someone from Riakong'a Church has taken this role each year.

The team is amazing- everyone has learned the different stations, so there is lots of moving around to experience each area.
The people love our attempts to speak Kisii, the local language! We can now say "Biorore" and "Biomono" as "How are you" and "Fine"
Amy wants to tell you she has conquered some fears, Chwe all have learned a lot, Valarie says to tell you she's no longer "Monica", that she misses you but that this is a really rewarding experience 

From Kenya -
Mungu Awabariki  -  God bless all of you! Thank you for all you have done to make this possible through donations and continuing prayers!
Giving gifts sponsored children to Willy Tanui, head of Nakuru office of Childcare Worldwide. 
Our Kenyan-American team just before the Medical Camp opened. Riakong's Methodist (the church Peter Mageto started in the village when he was a young man) and Aldersgate are partnering in this mission.
Claire loving on the children.
Lynda giving out reading glasses.
Laura giving physical therapy exercises.
Valarie testing for prescription glasses and...
...checking people in.
Amy counting pills.
Jevason from Riakong's Church looking at the Gideon Bibles donated by Aldersgate members. He said, "This is wonderful. God bless you so much."
This pasted waited a year to receive this new NIV Study Bible given by an Aldersgate member. He is so grateful!
Lynn checking in on Lucy, her brother, and mother.
Chris, our pharmacist, filling prescriptions.
We all love being with these people! Look at the side of the chair - it says "Aldersgate." The Aldersgate Endowment Fund allowed all the tables and chairs to be built.
Peter's brother, Clement, in charge!
Native dancing was entertainment at the Borabu Thursday night - several on our team danced with them!
