The Day started with breakfast at 6:30, devotions at 7 and departure by 8. Jim Zartman leads in song and also shared the message portion of devotions today.
The teams went in opposite directions with each having a 45 minute van ride.
The Surgery Team has started their first day of surgery while the village clinic team is deployed to a remote village called Copper Bank. The hospital where surgery is normally performed is under renovation, so a private clinic is being held a block away.
There are 39 patients scheduled for surgery after yesterday’s long evaluation day. If 39 surgeries are done in 3 days it will be a miracle all in itself. But, as of 1 PM local time, the system of transporting patients a few at a time and performing surgery seemed to be going well.
Seven surgeries were already performed against the day’s goal of 15 cases.
