For the last several years we have been taking our traveling medical clinic, (AKA- Henry’s bus), to the villages of Tubur and Serere. This year we go to Bugnudo, the area where Andrew Sutton has been farming. Bugundo is about an hour from Soroti, situated in the center of lake Kyoga on the western edge of the eastern region of Uganda.
This is a new area for us to be working and the medical clinic is always a huge success! At Simon’s house last night he told us that they were expecting about 400 people. Dr Robert Yarber asked him how many they were expecting last year and everyone who was on the trip that year laughed. About 1,500-2,000 were at the clinic day last year on a plot of land that may have comfortably fit 500-600.
Today promises to be slightly more organized as we have a good idea of what to expect and how to react. The pharmacy/clinic won’t be the only thing we do that day; while it is occurring, others of the team will be doing children’s ministry, teaching/preaching, or singing to gather the crowds together.
We can’t wait to get started!
As always, thanks for reading.
