Visitors and a busy week


We started this week by welcoming many visitors to Chidamoyo Hospital.  On Sunday evening, the 22nd of February Dr. Stephanie Huang from Santa Rosa, CA  arrived with her 2 sons Julian and   Lucas .  Stephanie who is an ENT surgeon came last year in June and said she really wanted to come back with her sons and so we are happy to welcome them for 2 weeks.

Every Monday morning we have Viral Load draw day for our 5,249 patients on ART.  the viral load tells us if the medication is working to control their AIDS and if they are taking their medicine.  We start drawing by 0645 and at 0800 Major comes to do devotions for us.  This has been a special time of encouragement for our patients.

Monday morning we welcomed a team that had come to visit Martha and Fanny Nyamutora, who minister in Gweru.  Fanny’s home village is down at the end of our airstrip.  He had a team of American ladies that had come out to help with a Women’s Conference and VBS in Gweru and came to have a night at Fanny’s village and joined us for a tour of the hospital and have tea with us Monday morning.

We were joined by Bev Campbell of Gresham, OR; Michelle Larson of Rochester, MN; Sharon Werner of Lyons, CO and Marette Longenson of MN.  

Major and I actually share a supporting church of Bev Campbell in Lemon Grove, CA and we actually had been together there in 2015 for a missions Sunday.  Also her father, Paul Douglass and her late mother, came and helped at the Bible College in Harare in the early 90's and stayed in my house in Harare for the 3 months they were here.

Sharon Werner was visiting her daughter in Eugene, OR when we spoke last year at Santa Clara Christian Church.  She heard us there that Sunday morning.  Amazingly a small world we all ended up at Chidamoyo!

They brought small gifts for the patients and Pediatric patients which they gave out.  We saw them off about noon for the long ride back to Gweru (9 hours!).  We were thankful they took time out of their busy schedule to visit us.

We kept Stephanie busy seeing patients and she presented an in-service for the staff  one morning.

The twin boys,  Lucas ans Julian,  celebrated their 16th birthday here on Wednesday (25th of April) and we celebrated with cake and ice cream for all the staff at tea.  What a special treat as no one ever gets ice cream out here in the bush!

The boys have been kept busy doing some computer work for Major and me and also helping Stephanie in some of her procedures—they keep the patients entertained—especially the kids!  We also put them to work on Thursday at the vaccination clinic measuring kids heights and arm circumferences.  They didn’t seem to mind the loud noise of kids crying and moms yelling!

All week we have had high school kids here at the hospital to work in each of the departments to see different careers that might interest them.  They help with everything from cleaning up the yard to counting pills to helping in the lab, kitchen and laundry and following the nurses.  Lucas and Julian thanked them for their volunteer work by giving out pens to them as a thank you.

Friday,  Stephanie and the boys left with Major to go on a weekend safari at Rhino Camp.  I am sure they are happy seeing animals and Major is happy fishing!

Today (Saturday) I decided to take a day off from work and get some things done around the house and catch up on my “to do” list.  It has been wonderful.  It has been several months since I have been able to do that.
