Today marked the first day in the trip for the team to run a clinic. However it was an overcast morning with a light drizzle, which cast a worry over how the day would go. After breakfast we loaded up and took a trip to the AECA/PTR property to get the lay of the land and set-up nets. We also divided a good portion of the team into three groups. Each group walked around the surrounding neighborhood passing out flyers and reminding families of the clinic in the afternoon. It was a chance also to see the areas where the kids live. While setting up, a quick rain shower came through the area. After set-up, and the neighborhood tours were over, the team returned to the hotel for lunch and a brief overview on sharing your testimony through a translator. Over lunch a heavy but quick downpour came through. The team returned to the property at 2:30 with hopes to run a 2-hour clinic of teaching skills, playing fun games and sharing testimonies. The participant turnout was smaller than hoped for and the rains continued off and on. Despite not as much volleyball being taught/played as originally hoped for, the team played otherfun games with the kids and made the most of the time.
Please pray for drier weather tomorrow (Fri) and continued rest and strength for the team.
