Sunday, August 3, 2008: Missionary church

Today we had church services that seemed normal to us. It was nice that they did Sunday School, Worship and gave a sermon – “real church.” There is a team here now from Cornerstone International for a week. They came to pray. Pray for the people, the hospital, the missionaries and anything else they can think of. It is amazing timing considering some of the big things that have been going on at the hospital and patients. The missionary families here seem pretty depleted with the loss of so many missionaries recently going back to the US. They are worn out from the extra work they have been doing and they miss their friends. There are a few happy souls here long term and I pray that they would breed into the others.

They have made it clear that short term missions groups/families are sometimes a burden on them. I hope that we are more helpful than a burden, but I’m not sure. I know that Bryan has lightened the load on the few other physicians that are here. I still think it was worth it to come down here and I will forever be changed. We hope to come back and help more. This is an amazing organization doing great things for the Lord. The people and the hospital will be in our hearts, minds and prayers forever.

I swung on vines today and dropped into the McKenney swimming hole. We also attempted to boogie board at the Balfate beach.
