2014 has been our busiest mission trip to Zambia. We have run out of OR time and have had to schedule a few patients for next year. This is so hard to do. Of course we’re thrilled to be busy, but the reality of telling a mother her child will have to wait for one more year is a different story. Well, actually, it is just as hard to tell adult patients that they’ll have to wait. Today we saw a 25 year old man with a severe cleft lip deformity. He has three teeth projecting straight out of his moth. Another patient had a fever today and so her surgery was cancelled, meaning that she’ll have to wait until next year also. In case you’re wondering why the sudden surge in our schedule, I’ll share some photos of the front page of two newspapers. In addition to this, we were on ZNBC television. CURE and World Vision have gotten the word out to distant villages. We’re so happy to help all of the patients we have been able to treat this year, and will be looking forward to a busy year in 2015.
