Talk about hitting the ground running!
Our day began early under the beautiful gazebo with an inspiring devotional time with all the NEA staff. Akosua, who leads the maternal health aspect of NEA’s Leyaata project, challenged us that we, like Esther, have been called to this work “for such a time as this.”
First-time team members enjoyed a tour of the development compound while the rest of us set up for the staff clinic. Although it was a half day of work, so much was accomplished! The surgical team completed 26 surgical procedures, finishing long after dark. The medical team attended to all of the NEA staff and their families and extended families. It was a beautifully coordinated effort by all our docs, nurses, pharmacists and volunteers.
Our dentists didn’t waste any time all and NEA staffers are enjoying new fillings and one fortunate patient had their wisdom teeth removed under the mango tree! Our eye clinic was hopping and there are some very proud NEA staff sporting their new designer glasses that our friends from home donated.
All in all it was a superb start, and we are off to the village of Nyamboi early in the morning!

I am thinking about you and praying for you many times a day. I big piece of my heart still belongs to the Health Team and the people of Ghana.
If anyone has an opportunity to take a picture of someone receiving one of the baby blankets that were sent could you please take the pic? My aunt would be so thrilled to see one of her blankets in the hands of someone who needed it.
With you all always!
