OAI Volunteer Teams….

Kenya Teams 1 and 2 are home!

We welcome back from Kenya our first two summer outreach teams!

Team 1 worked at the Open Arms Village, landscaping around two of the new children’s homes. They shovelled dirt from large piles into wheelbarrows, then dumped that dirt around the homes to level out the ground. Once the dirt was all moved and compacted, they dug up grass from a nearby field and planted it in front of the homes so the children will have a beautiful yard to play in.
Team 2 hosted a medical clinic for the community in and around the Kambi Teso slum. In four days, the team of 26 (plus six local medical students, one Ugandan doctor, three Ugandan dentists, and one Ugandan ophthalmologist!) treated:

1,069 patients in medical

174 in dental

420 in eye

1,243 in pharmacy

210 tested for HIV (9 were positive)

We are also celebrating the 37 healings and 81 salvations that occurred during that time!

The last team of the summer is flying out July 25 to host another medical clinic. Because of heavy demand for services during our previous clinic, our medical supplies and funding for this outreach are running very low. Any help you could provide for medicines and supplies would allow us to touch hundreds more with medical treatment and the love of Jesus they so desperately need. You can send a cheque payable to ‘Open Arms International’ to PO Box 144, Stockport, SK7 6WG, or call 01625 859773 for credit card donations.

NB: that phone number is just for this occasion as I am away on a summer school so unable to answer the 0845 number until next week. Please call during office hours.

Many thanks, and God bless
