Kwashiorkor is hard to see in pictures.  But these are her feet.  They are so swollen with fluids that her toes have burst open in a few places.  It is painful.

Swelling in her face.

This foot belongs to Notha.  It is a mess and we are going to try and help here.  She lives a 5 hours walk away from the clinic so she will stay in the RC while she is healing. She is going to take a long time to heal.

 Loving this song today…

Lyrics to How Great Thou Art: Selah
O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds thy hands hath made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
