Tonight we had a celebration -appreciation dinner to thank and recognize the 200+ volunteers that helped with our medical mission this year. Every volunteer got a certificate of appreciation plus some gifts. The speeches were mercifully brief (a miracle in Nigeria), the music was loud and the food was great. Lots of laughs and tears and "snaps" .
All together we served 7,704 people with medical care. Included in that number were over 200 surgeries and 894 people helped at the eye clinic. Even person and family was prayed for and over 300 people expressed a desire to make a significant spiritual commitment.
All of our team members are told exhausted and yet we are filled with gratitude and joy. Grateful to have been used by God for this ministry of mercy and love.
