Challenges, Tears and Excitement for today
Work started today on the fit out of the medical clinic. It was all action with Andrew R leading a team of budding young builders. He was in his element. The team of 19 students quickly assembled the stud walls reluctantly stopping for breakfast or breaks just eager to get the job done. It was very encouraging to walk into the building and see everyone busy and working together as a team to achieve the same goal. On the other hand Andrew W and myself were confronting many challenges in the Aids Hospice. Andrew with his thorough examinations continued to discover multiple problems that patients are trying to deal with. . It is hard not to get emotional as you see this level of personal suffering infront of your eyes. We are looking at giving education to the health team to encourage them with processes that we feel would improve patient care. Please pray as we prepare for this. Also pray for us as we take daily devotionals with the health team and for the Holy Spirit to be at work in this group to bring unity and a desire to excel . The infrastructure which is being built will be fantastic but it is so important to develop a team of compassionate and competent health professionals setting a high standard in the clinic. We really need discernment in this as we spend time with each person involved at this point of time and learn more about how things have been operating here.
