Dr. Mark, Keshia, Sarah, and Cesar were seeing a woman and her 3 month old baby who both complained of the infamous “gripe” also known as the “flu/cold/sinus infection/bronchitis.” The woman claimed that her “gripe” had been going on for 3 months, and that she was depressed and not breastfeeding. She also stated that she lost over 30 pounds after the baby was born. They diagnosed her with post-partum depression and determined that the baby was healthy. Half an hour later, a different woman with the same baby came back to their station complaining of “gripe” and anemia. They were very confused why the same baby was back with a different woman. She stated that the other woman was her sister-in-law who apparently “lies a lot!” They were finally convinced that she was the baby’s mother when she proceeded to breastfeed right in front of them!
Five people committed their lives to Christ at the evangelism station with Elizabeth and Austin. Many of the medical stations also had great spiritual encounters with their patients today. The Holy Spirit has been at work in every person and situation that we have encountered on this trip! Please continue to pray for our team as several members have become sick. Pray that we will have another great day at the same clinic on Tuesday and that we will be able to serve the spiritual and medical needs of our patients!
