Kenya Travel Update

Today marked the final day for our medical team at the Kiu clinic. We’ve heard from Dr. Lynn Chincheck, D.D.S. who declared the mission a success. She and the rest of the team, ably assisted by some Kenyan doctors and nurses, treated a total of 517 people over three days. She said she loved “the docs and nurses and the amazing assistants on our team!”

Nurse Gina Knorr reported, “We were told for the size of our group, this was an impressive amount to treat. As we departed the village, emotions were high. We stood together hand-in-hand with the community leaders, pastors and other members of 410 Bridge. God was so present, it was palpable. As we left, we stopped by the water project the Church of the Nativity helped fund. It is on the grounds of a local school, and we were warmly welcomed by several students. We ended our day with a surprise campfire. This morning (Thursday) we prepare to depart for our next adventure with full hearts. We all look forward to seeing our loved ones soon.”

The hard-working group is now on its way to Amboseli National Park for some much-deserved rest and recreation. Amboseli is located in the southwest corner of Kenya near the border of Tanzania. Snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro towers above the park’s marshy swamps and dusty plains that are filled with an abundance of wildlife.

Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security.
~ Jeremiah 33:6

Please pray for the missionaries to have a fun and relaxing day today!
