Sharing life, making a difference; weaving my experiences as a woman, a mother, and nurse.

Exhausted & Exhilirated

Under a beautiful clear blue sky today, we opened the doors to the first Health Fair in Ntekete.  This day was pretty crazy!  We had 4 stations – Blood Pressure check, Blood Sugar Check, Malaria Screening, and Wound Station/General Exam/Pharmacy.  The hours were supposed to be 10-2, the hours were 10-3:30, and then we turned about 40 people away because we were out of everything, including energy!  I am so proud and impressed with my nursing students!  They worked so hard, cared for so many people, 204 people by the way,  without any thought of taking a break – we couldn’t have escaped the room if we tried! They serve God truly through caring for God’s people!  It is fun and rewarding to watch these young women grow and reveal their strengths as leaders and nurses-to-be!
