Many experienced a morning trip into the hills with Gospel Cross this morning. The new CORPS were seen demonstrating and practicing the skills that had recently learned and passing on their knowledge to the villagers. Hilarious skits (dramas) where used to teach good anti-natal practices.
Ola’s foot clinic saw some of her most serious work and has been a highlight of the trip. She extracted jiggers from one old chap who was suffering greatly. We’ll not put you off your dinner by showing a photo!
In the evening the whole team headed back to Butema village in Nsenge district for a party. Speeches of thanks were met by more speeches of thanks, then thanks for the thanks – let a Ugandan have a stage and try to get him off it! The village supplied us with wonderful food kept warm in banana leaves. People lined up in a queue so tightly you couldn’t see daylight between them! Somehow the food stretched to everyone.
Dancing to drums was enjoyed into the night, with sporadic quiet moments whilst the drums were warmed over an open fire. Simon and Duncan slept in the village to experience village life. They even helped dismantle marquees and return many plastic chairs to their homes.
