Comfort ship comes to Cazale part 2

 There is a group from the government that is working on the ripped up bridge.  That is why there is a big pile of dirt in front of the broken area.  This is the group coming across to the clinic.

We made three lines.  One for eyes, one for teeth, and one for everyone else.  It was so simple and made it easy to get the patients through the lines quickly.

When they walked into the gate they were tagged with a green wrist band. This band had a number on it and was used to tract what meds and what doctor saw them.

That is 813 adults and children that recieved free medical care that would not have this week without the wonderful efforts of those on the Comfort ship.   Along with many US navy and army there were many from others countries like the Netherlands, Cananda, Chile, and a few other countries.  What a blessing that so many can come together to help others.

Psalm 34:7-9 (The Message)

 7 God‘s angel sets up a circle
   of protection around us while we pray.

 8 Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see—
         how good God is.
   Blessed are you who run to him.

 9 Worship God if you want the best;
   worship opens doors to all his goodness.

    What a blessing! I can’t believe they saw 813 patients in three days. That is amazing.

    Thinking of all of you serving in Haiti, and praying for you and all of the folks that you minister to.
