Drawing to a close...

On Sunday, our team traveled to the BMDMI Good Shepherd Children's home, near to the Mission Home.  They had the priviledge of visiting with the children, and then attending a worship service with them.  The children's home presently houses 97 children, and they are expecting five or six more to arrive this week.  If you are interested in learning more about...

Last day in Maraita

This is our hard-working medical team.  They saw 97 patients on Wednesday (half day of clinic on the day they arrived), 579 patients on Thursday, 400 patients on Friday, and 150 patients on Saturday.  That is a grand total of 1,226 patients in less than four days!  (Plus one more; story below!) This is the pharmacy team who fulfilled any perscriptions f...

Another busy day!

The second full day in Maraita for our team began bright and early (before 5am!), and was another hot and busy one.  So busy, in fact, that they ended the clinic early because all of the patients had been seen!  The pharmacy ran very low on supplies, and the clothing closet is almost empty.  Our team had the priviledge of leading two ladies to Christ while...

Full & Busy Day!

Our team had a very busy and successful day on Thursday, their first full day in Maraita.  Running on little sleep (due to leaky roofs, barking dogs, fighting dogs, mooing cows, and roosters!), our team was up bright and early for breakfast and devotions.  After that, their busy day began!  The people came, and long lines formed to get into the clinics al...

Long Journey to a Little Village

Our team left FBC in the wee morning hours on Tuesday, and traveled to the airport to begin their journey to Maraita, Honduras.   Their early flight from Pittsburgh took them to Atlanta, where they had a brief layover--made a bit longer by a delay for replacement parts on the plane after they were already boarded.  Eventually, they were in the air, and arr...

Starting toward home...

It is with full and happy hearts that our team is beginning their journey back toward Wheeling today.  Although they are excited and "very ready" to return home, they were also sad to tell their hosts goodbye.  Our team enjoyed a pancake breakfast with them in their home this morning, and then spent time having devotions, singing, and praying together.  Plea...

Careening back to the city

  Our team has completed the first stretch of their journey back toward home!  They left the village early this morning, and are in Kathmandu now.  When they awoke this morning, the fog lifted, and they had spectacular views of the mountains from their campsite.  The village leader and his mother presented them with special thank yous as they left. An...

Rainy day!

Our team has finished their teaching, and is feeling very blessed!  Teaching was good, and very appreciated.  They spent much time teaching on the HS, and "the men went on and on about how much better they understand now."  "The [leaders] and their wives thanked us time and time again for coming the long way to share...with them."  Praise!  Fr...

A bit of a different teaching style...

Trek to the campsite

Early this morning (last night, Wheeling time), our team departed from Kathmandu, and started their journey to the village.  The ride was rough, but they were able to see many towns and villages as they wound up and down the mountains.    Our team's 6 hour long van ride was cut a bit short, as the roads were impassable, so they had to hike the last 3...

Our team has had quite the day/night since I last updated! Last night around midnight (our time), they should have been finishing their 13 hour flight by landing in Doha, Qatar to catch their final flight into Nepal.  However, after two failed attempts to land in a lightening storm, they were rerouted to an airport in Bahrain (an island in the Persian Gulf).  Af...
