Day three of clinic.

(posting delayed due to spotty internet access)

We finished the “little kids” today. About 400 of the little guys. What a wonderful time.

We trust you’ve enjoyed the videos thanks to Audie Osborn, especially watching the kids eat. Special blessing for us. That’s their meal for the day...

We’ve been moved each day as we’ve served them.

Today we fit ‘em with glasses, fixed their hernias, pulled and filled their teeth, cared for their little sores and infections....

And one boy we diagnosed with lymphoma... had a stomach mass, opened him up and then closed him back up... now here’s a good question for ya... is he worth saving? It’ll take the same amount of money to cure him as it takes to feed his 400 siblings for three months, and even then they don’t know if he’ll make it. Dr. Thomas will have to make that decision when the biopsy comes back.

On the preacher front, we have two great announcements. We’ve discovered if Dr. Weeden wants to take a paycut and put a target on his back, he’d be a great preacher. He even filled in for Dr. Thomas this week. The other is Dr. Noyes, who has been leading the seminary in a nightly devotional study.

Teams are wonderfully tired from great work.

Jesus said “Let your light so shine before men that they will see your good works and glorify your father which is in heaven.” As you see the good works the team has done on the videos we hope that you see Jesus... in the children’s eyes and in their smiles.

That’s who we’re serving... Jesus in orphan skin.
