Saturday, April 16th

Today, it rained. It rained children, and it rained water. And to quote our dear teammate Ezra, “I had a rough day.” But we also had a glorious day (and so did Ezra, Abigail and Tony who were able to have a little ice cream tonight, and play a little soccer with the Zulu children this morning).

Our clinic was a huge success today. Despite the rain, we were able to set a record by seeing more than 400 children in 10 hours, and providing “tons” of medication and vitamins to them. Our team from the U.S. and our Zulu partners played and prayed with them all, and tried to reflect the love of God to them. We provided lunch to many of the children (our standard PBJ sandwiches). Several of our team also provided transportation for the children and ACM staff to and from the clinic.

This was by far our best clinic this week. We are all exhausted, but feel great about what was accomplished. Several of the young Zulu men who work for ACM here joined us for a late supper and our evening devotion tonight, and sang some Zulu songs with us. Great fun!

We continue to pray every day for you, our friends, families and supporters back at home. We miss you all, and hope that you are well. It’s hard to believe that we’ve been here a week already. Tomorrow is Sunday and we’re going to be helping with the children’s Bible study at both churches in the morning.

We are all well, looking forward to a restful afternoon tomorrow.

Sala kahle, siakuthanda. (stay well, we love you).

Cathy and Sarah N., for the team
