Mike, as the Logistics head, has dozens of different tasks to do each day that keep the project rolling. He manages everything to keep the short-termers comfortable, well fed, transported safely, and in general as ready as possible for action when they arrive at the clinic. I (Sydney) of course have my financial responsibilities, but I have been filling my time by interpreting for the American nurses who work with the patients we see.
It is heartbreaking to see the problems the local people have, coupled with the lack of health care in the city as well, but it is such a blessing to see a few hundred people a day through the clinic and be able to touch lives in this way. We also have several impact events that go on during the same time, teaching children and adults about Christ through games and different activities, Jesus films, etc. Our communications/tech teams are still in the process of getting updates onto the main Extreme website, so bear with us – when it’s up, we’ll post a link for you all to see more news, statistics on those many who have already given their lives to Christ this week, more pictures, etc. To generally peruse our website, be sure to click on the black “E” to the right. More updates soon!
