We had another amazing clinic day today in Lanyi! Everyone’s prayers for our strength were answered. We even had some rain and cooler temperatures, which was wonderful for everyone! We saw 240 patients in Lanyi and 45 just now in Mundri with the South Sudan partner’s staff and family members, so 285 people total. Praise God! We rehydrated 2 babies until they were well again and distributed a lot of ibuprofen for many people who had pain and fever.
All members of the team are doing well, tired but not exhausted. We all got our second wind today and energy to serve more, thanks to your prayers and to the Lord. Wonderful weather, beautiful views and delicious meal after the rain showers tonight has everyone’s spirits high. Dr. Brobst led a great team devotional on Psalm 23 this morning.
Our MAF flight is at 10:30 tomorrow morning.…

We had a great day today. We saw 230 people in the clinic in Wiroh. We treated a lot of giardia and had just enough Coartem to treat malaria patients to the exact number. God is good! We also performed several ear irrigations and an oral rehydration. Jeremy saw 160 people for glasses. Several people besides Jon have gotten to share the story book of the Gospel and more Bibles were given out to interested people. Kids are loving the soccer balls we gave them to play with.
Everyone on the team is doing well! We are enjoying rice, beans, bread and cabbage for dinner and watching a pretty sunset tonight. Great team devotional and worship singing is giving us all encouragement, strength and peace. God has not only sustained us and met our needs, but exceeded expectations and helped us to do much work. We have had great team…

It was another good day with the clinic in Buagyi. We saw 250 patients from 10:00AM-5:00PM. There was a lot of malaria again today-so much so that we used some meds from the Day 5 supplies. We also saw one case of cutaneous leishmaniasis (also known as Kala-azar), which is a skin infection caused by a parasite transmitted through sand fly bites. We visited the local pharmacy in Buagyi, which was neat. We gave out several Bibles again today. It was also the hottest day yet. The frog towels came in handy. Please pray for continued strength for all so we can serve to the fullest.
Jon shared the Gospel of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ all day again today. He shared with one man for an hour contrasting Jesus and Muhammad. Although the man thought he was a Christian and had been baptized, he also believed there were…

We saw 193 people in the clinic today, treated mainly for malaria, pain, and bacterial infections. Sunglasses were a big hit again today. The whole team worked together successfully.
Emily and Lauren gave out a Bible today. Jon has shared the gospel with every person he has met! One of the translators asked Jessica Golden to write down verses for him. The Gospel story and the Ten Commandments game has been shared with the kids. Reading stories from the Children’s Bible has been successful.
One team member is in need of prayer for a back injury sustained before departing on the trip. Please pray for them!
Happy Birthday Mom, from Shayna!

We woke up to cool temps from the rain all night-thankfully. The first clinic was great-we saw 140 patients. The team was in their element, working together very well. Matta people sang and danced all day while we worked. We saw many cases of malaria. One patient had an eye worm (Loa Loa) and another patient had scabies (a skin irritation caused by mites burrowing in the skin). Sunglasses were a hit and 50 pairs of eyeglasses were given out today in the vision clinic.”
After dinner they sang worship songs under the mango tree. Jeffreys (South Sudanese Field Partner) commented that he loved the words and said he would read them over and over. He called today wonderful.
Jessica is also blogging for the trip this week, though internet service will be unlikely while in South Sudan. She wrote a great piece while in Entebbe over the weekend…

The team arrived in Mundri this morning without event, except for a rain shower in flight. The rain cooled the air temperature and provided a transition that was a blessing!
They ate lunch with the South Sudanese field partners and traveled 33 miles southeast on a dirt road in Land Cruisers to their living quarters for the week in a village called Buagyi (pronounced Boo-ag-yee). This is one of the 5 villages that will be visited this week by the team and will be base camp.
As of now, they finished dinner (red beans and rice), had Bible study and a time of prayer with the field partners. It started raining during the Bible study and eased the heat. It is dry season right now but the rain is sure providing a cooler relief for the team!
Three men on the team have already had the privilege of sharing the…
