Operation Renewed Hope
Uganda Clinic Updates
Tuesday - March 23, 2010

   Today was the first clinic day of the week and was it busy! The team enjoyed breakfast together at 6:00am before heading to the clinic site. We then loaded up the busses and headed to Buda for our first clinic. The line was already forming when we arrived. We were very excited to begin our assignments for the day. The clinic opened at 8:45 a.m. and during the morning, however, an unexpected storm came and made seeing patients difficult. Yet, the team held it together and overcame the obstacles. Fortunately, the storm did not last long and we could see the patients easier because the sun came out.
There were over 250 people from villages all over that came to our clinic eager to be helped, not only physically, but also spiritually. In spite of all the different diseases we came across, the spiritual emphasis was very strong at the services that were held throughout the clinic site. To our knowledge, fifty people accepted Christ as their Savior! All of the unique people we saw and the hearts that were touched made an impact on every person on the team. Although it was sad to turn people away because of time, it was exciting to see the smiles on all the adults and children’s faces that we helped. We finally wrapped up our day at 7:30 p.m. and headed back for supper at the missionaries house after the doctors, nurses, and rest of the team worked very hard to get as many people in the clinic as possible. It is only day one, and we can already see our hard work being paid off by God’s grace and are excited for the rest of the week. We trust that you will continue in prayer for us for strength each day and that we will be good testimonies for our Savior.
