When God in his infinite wisdom proclaimed the seventh day as a day of rest He certainly foresaw the needs of our dedicated medical team today. After six long grueling days in the villages and on the roads to get to and from them it was time to turn off the adrenalin and just allow our bodies and minds to be tired and to rest.
After a later breakfast this morning the vehicles loaded for the short drive to the Bamboi church for Sunday service. Words simply can’t do justice to the time of praise, worship and testimonies at a good African church. Simple uninhibited praise and jubilation expressed in joyful song and dance is so natural here that most of our team willingly joined in with the congregation. Somehow two and a half hours went by very quickly. The rest of the day afforded plenty of time for naps, chats or just plain vegging and for the few of our unwell soldiers to get back to full strength.
Having been in the trenches with this awesome group of people this past week I can only say to all who are reading this, whether children, spouses, relatives, friends or supporters of those here, that you can be very proud of what they are accomplishing. It is truly making a difference in this faraway part of world.
