A Couple of Updates on a Couple of Updates
May 25, 2011
Catherine was stable today and her doctor referred her to Jinja Main Hospital this afternoon. She has been moved and is now under the care of the government hospital. The cost of maintaining medical attention at the clinic is more than Sera can manage, although she was able to pay half of the total bill with a contribution that came through Next Generation Ministries. She borrowed the other half from The Caring Place rent fund as funds should be coming from Canada to help close out the loan within a week to ten days.
A nephew was discovered who is willing to care for Catherine at Jinja Main as well. Sera is pretty exhausted from the more than two weeks of caring for Catherine. Any of us who had any dealings with the medical staff at Al Shafa Medical Clinic were VERY impressed with their level of expertise and compassion. We salute them!

NDOLWA CRUSADE ...
Jesus has come to Ndolwa. This past Sunday, the concluding day of the kickoff crusade, 74 people were baptized and the first service was crowded with grateful attendees. The local chairman (village chief so to speak) and the mayor were both in attendance ... signifying government support.
GOING SILENT ...

On a kind of personal note ... if you want to read the latest on Blair's spiritual journey you can find it here.
She asked me to read it to Pam this morning. I attempted and now my sinuses are completely clear. (code word for leaking which is a code word for crying)
Thanks for your love, prayers, and support. We could never do what we do without you. We ARE a mission team regardless of where we lay our head at night.
