Heal me O LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. Jeremiah 17:14
We’re here! With a game plan ready, we arrived at Bondeni school and set up clinic for the next 3 days. Children were doubled up in already crowded classrooms so we could have space to work. It did not take long to prepare: intake/registration and triage, two exam rooms, pharmacy and most importantly, the prayer room – where unbelievable transformations were about to happen.
A team member “ushered” a patient/family through each phase, giving us time to get acquainted with every person who came for help. Once treated, we took them to the prayer room while their prescription was being filled. Beautiful things were beginning to happen there …
Remember we are at a school in session … picture us us moving patients through each phase in the midst of hundreds of joyful, energetic children … what an unbelievable experience, to be caring for physical needs and loving on these children in every minute in between!
A humbling and rewarding first day … we are no longer focused not the conditions of Mathare, but totally immersed in the people and the moment. What a blessing to be serving Him in this incredible place. Praises!
