First Days of Work

Wednesday Afternoon – March 29

Tuesday was our first actual work day. For the first three work days we have three work teams: a construction team, a children’s ministry team (worked construction in the morning and children’s ministry in the evening), and a health fair team. The “construction” work consisted of ditch digging for a water line, moving some building materials, as well as moving and burning some brush in a clearing where another house will eventually be built. The first day of the health fair had about 150 to 200 people come through for care. The students joined up with a doctor and a dentist along with other individuals. Opportunities available to students included takin blood pressures, cleaning dental instruments between patients, making sandwiches for the volunteers to eat for lunch, and making crafts with kids who were there waiting on their parents to receive care. The children’s programming in the evening is taking place in conjunction with evangelistic meetings in a very poor neighbourhood near the mission “compound” where we are lodging. The first night there were probably at least 50 to 60 children present. The kids program consisted of some songs, a mime, a puppet story, craft time, and games.
