An Amazing Week

Internet has been sparce but hakuna matata (“no worries” in Swahili).

I landed in Tanzania late Tuesday, local time. Laurence had a surprise arrival of his baby daughter, Zoey, the day before, January 9th! Apparently her due date, February 19th, was a little off because she weighed 11 pounds!

The MOST Ministries eyeglass team landed Thursday night. What a great group of people they are. Friday we went out to Next Life in Mbuguni for devotions with our students. Pastor Emmanuel gave an excellent message on Zaccheaus & the beautiful singing of our pupils is always an inspiration. .

Saturday through Tuesday we saw over three hundred people for eyeglasses. They ranged from 9 years old to 100 years old.

Lunch was served to anyone that came. Well over 500 folks were nourished with traditional Tanzanian food. When I looked out at all the people under the shade of the tree eating, I couldn’t help but think of Jesus feeding the five thousand.

Unfortunately, time limited the number of folks we could serve in the eyeglass clinic, so many had to be turned away. It broke my heart when a young girl in broken English told me she really needed glasses. Daylight just runs away and lighting is so important in checking vision.

The rest of the team is on safari now, enjoying the amazing creation of God. It’s hard not to worship our awesome God when in the National Parks here in Africa.

Thank you for your prayers. God bless you, Patti
