Chief Djibrine, the chief of Guinebor II, is a Muslim, but he has heard the gospel multiple times. We’ve been friends for 15 years.
He and the other village leaders now welcome Christians, at least partly because of the positive testimony of the hospital.
He’s offered us land to build a Christian school.
Dory, the tiny quad kid, is going to make it, thanks to a little TLC and several missionaries!
Dory is content snacking on her favorite snack-watermelon rind cut up just the right size her mouth.
Every Wednesday at 6:45 a.m. our G2 team gathers to pray for every patient in the hospital.
Most team members are Chadian.
In the photo below, we also had believers from Cameroon, the UK, Egypt, and the USA.
Kalbassou Doubassou (far left in the photo above) will serve as the hospital director after we leave for ten weeks home assignment. We’ve known Kalbassou for 25 years.
April was busy with 142 operations.
May brings many changes to the staff:
Emily (SIM-France) and Dr. Schüle (Anesthesiologist from Germany) and family have left.
Bill Wright (USA) left May 6th.
Elise Grange, Physical Therapy, (SIM France) leaves May 8th. The PT dept she started is running well with Chadian staff.
Martin and Elaine Harrison are doing a great job in accounting and management. They leave May 11th.
Melanie, an independent nurse from Sweden, has helped a lot. She leaves May 18th.
Dr. Mina (Doctors With a Mission) the Egyptian dentist, has started the dental clinic. He leaves May 27th.
Debbie and I (CEF – USA) leave May 27th.
Many leaving. Almost everyone wants to return.
The new surgical center will be dedicated to the Lord this week. We will finally be able to do more than one operation at the same time.
Please continue to pray for another surgeon and expat administrator.
