Day One: Digging In

21 01 2014

It was an early start this morning for us all getting ready to go to the center to start our work for the week.  When we arrived, I was surprised that there were already people waiting for our arrival and the clinic to be set up.  Today we saw over forty-five people, many included the elders within the community, and everything went smoothly.  There were many new experiences, especially for those of us who are new to the culture.  Sitting on the mats for lunch was an experience that won’t be forgotten soon.  After lunch, for the rest of the day, the team got to adventure out into the market places of Saint-Louis to pick out their cloth for our traditional Senegalese garb for Saturdays dedication of the center that was just recently finished.  After some much needed rest time, we headed to Vicki and Eric’s home where we ate dinner and spent some time visiting them.  We are all exhausted and are looking forward to tomorrow’s events.

Wow! Praying again this morning for all of you; for strength, protection, and most of all for God’s presence to be made known. Have a wonderful day.
