We treated and God is healed.
Kategaya met his sponsor. It was all hugs and smiles.
With a dedicated team of medical stuff, we were able to treat 1,850 throughout our missions.
The people of Africa are in great need. Everywhere heads turned, gazes held, and people stopped to look. Expressions often looked strained, maybe disgruntled or even occasionally downright hostile. I learned, however, that my perceptions can be wrong. For sometimes when I smiled, they smiled back. And I learned that this too is a gift from God – whenever a frown transforms into a sincere smile.
So, as so often happens in short term mission trips, I went away from this experience receiving far more than I ever contributed: gifts of beauty, gifts of nature, gifts of community and the ever precious gift of being made more aware of, and participating a little more in, God’s true kingdom.
Again, we are deeply grateful for your prayers and interest as you took this journey with us. Looking back on our specific prayer requests as we prepared over the weeks preceding our trip, it is unmistakably clear that God took care of those particular requests, among so many other things. God is good!
