There simply is TOO much to cover to address all that happened this week, so I'll highlight two things that have a direct impact on our ministry.
The first (and may not seem like the most important, but when you've been waiting almost 5 years to have a clinic, you will understand) is the construction of four exam tables. Our deer sweet friend Tom DeKleer had four exam tables sent down for the clinic. They arrived about a week ago, and the guys took a day to put them together. Here is Rebekah making sure they are okay :-)
The second thing that happened (besides the 195 patients we saw, 44 ultrasounds done) - were two of the ultrasounds and what the results were. Two VERY pregnant mommies were told that their placenta was completely covering the cervix. Okay - so what does that mean to the average jo?! That means there is ZERO chance that the moms can deliver their babies vaginally and need a c-section. If they hadn't had known about this, the moms would have gone into labor and the placenta would have started tearing and the high risk here is for bleeding out (that means both the mom AND the baby could die). In otherwords - 4 lives were saved. It certainly was a divine providential moment that we were there right before the moms would have delivered their babies to let them know this crucial information. SO cool!
My dad arrives on Saturday and I'm giggling in joyful excitement!
