Trip 18, SOH Uganda, Update 2

Mission completed for three of the team.  Jon, Emily, and Rick are heading home and I will stay a few more weeks.  It was a good two weeks at SOH, accomplishing our plan and an addition of Medical/Dental/Reading glasses outreach to the community which turned out to be the most important part of the trip.  The outreach lasted 3 days and reached the entire area around the orphanage.

We served roughly 250 people with basic medical and medicine by Dr. Ben from Kenya,   Dental assistance including teeth pulling by a clinic in Kamuli, and reading glasses.  We have tons of stories, many very appreciative people, and a very elderly man who finally accepted Christ as his Saviour in the dentist office due to the love and care we showed him.  Praise God!

Several projects were completed including lighting, gutters for rain collection and furniture building.  Here are a few photos….
