Over the last couple of days we have been helping in the hospital in the morning and then in the afternoon we have been driving for an hour out of the town to a small village. It is a village that two American missionaries went to in the 19th century and most of the Dhalits or untouchables became Christians. There is a small church there built in 1932 and the village is where Dr Moses Khartoum,s mother grew up.
Moses is the founder of CBHP and this village is a significant place as the missionaries also set up a school that Dhalits could go to and this enabled his mother and father to be educated and become an accountant and doctor respectively. It also allowed Moses to get an education. The photos show the village and church and our clinic in the church. As we were in a church and in this village we were able to pray for healing as well as do what we could to help medically.
Tomorrow we will go back to the village probably for the last time as we will go to others next week.
