Today was good, we worked at
Queens. Yamicani joined us in the morning. We went to the orthopedic and oncology ward as normal. As usual, the kids were thrilled to see us. And the fathers in the oncology ward did not give us as bad of a time as yesterday, which was good. I think it is because we had Yami with us, he commands unspoken respect and authority that young women, no matter how hard we try, can not. Youth and women are not as respected in this culture as in America; although, in youth and women demand respect, where here they just take the disrespect quietly without a word. America
We spent some time before lunch in prayer outside the hospital. We prayed for spiritual strength and courage, along with God’s guidance. Also, for the doctors, nurses and hospital administration, that they would have wisdom as they go about their work. We prayed for the sick patients and their guardians. It was a good time of intercession.
After lunch Abbie and I read to the guardians. There were not very many outside during the lunch hour today, we are not sure why but we read to those that were there. We read the story of Creation and then I explained how God loves his creation, especially you and I, and that he wants to have a personal relationship with us. They were not completely responsive but I could tell they were listening. Once we finished working at
Queens for the day Kelsey and I ran some errands in town and then came home.
