It has been a great mission trip. Now we are on our way home and we are sitting in the Nairobi airport. We were fortunate to work with great staff in the OR, clinic and hospital ward. These folks at the Beit Cure Hospital in Lusaka dedicate their lives to treating poor children with congenital deformities or disabilities year round. They are good at what they do, and they are so pleasant and kind to work with. We will miss them and look forward to returning in the future. We couldn’t get a photo of everyone, but here is a good bunch of us on our last day rounding in the hospital. In the lower photo you can see Madeleine (and her camera) and her friend Makupa. Makupa is Victor’s daughter. You might remember my stories of Victor last year. He has spent some time in Portland with his work with the Forestry Center, but lives in Lusaka and is an immense help in coordinating this mission trip. His daughter is thinking of becoming a doctor and wished to join us one day to watch surgery.
