On Saturday afternoon, a white land rover with Kenya tags made its way on to the WHM property, with five young women in the back wide-eyed from their harrowing drive over the Bundibugyo Road. Bruce and Kate Dahlman, with AIM, have been leading this medically-oriented group throughout Kenya and Uganda, visiting various models of public health, medicine, and agricultural projects.
Interns Sarah and Olvie did an excellent job hosting the women, leading a community tour, and even explaining the proper use of the outdoor cho. On Saturday night, we enjoyed pizza together and getting to know each other. Sunday included a lengthy church service, lunch, community walk, drive to see the Congo border, Ugandan food dinner, and an attempt to watch "War Dance" (cut short by no electricity and bad dvd). This morning, the group toured the Nyahuka Health Center and prayed together over the patients there. After a quick lunch, they hit the road in effort to hit the construction zones at lunch time (ie no workers to slow them down!) and for a swim at Kluges Guest Farm. We pray that God used their experience here in some way to open their hearts towards working among the poor with the gifts that God has given each of them.
