A heavy schedule!
Everyone is working very hard here. The schedule is quite heavy and the temperature is hot. The team is effectively in three parts, there is a part of the teram doing medical and dental work in Nyembuye near Rutana, reports from them are that they are doing well, pulling teeth, diagnosing health problems and dispensing medicines and they have also been involved in some preaching which by all accounts has been very effective. Secondly the young folks on the team ably supported by two more mature ladies have been doing a lot of childrens ministry. This has been so well received. Those older folks whop remember flannel graphs at Sunday school will have an idea how the Bible stories are being delivered. That combined with songs and a lot of dancing is what they get up to with the kids. I am doing a lot of preaching to chuirch leaders, who have had no formal training anfd so are in great need. In addition to this I have also preached a some outreach events where many have responded to the Gospel.
