Cleft Lip & Palate Week

Chase finished up at Tenwek this past Sunday (10/28) working right up until the SP van arrived.  She is now over at Kijabe/AIC Cure Hospital for the Cleft Lip & Palate surgeries this week.  She doesn't have any WiFi at that location, therefore no updates - so here goes:

Please pray for a baby girl named Susan.  She didn't wake up from surgery and they had to transport her to the ICU at the hospital up the road.  As it turned out, there was a malfunction in the anesthesia equipment and instead of breathing in oxygen her air was getting recirculated so she was breathing back carbon dioxide.  Thankfully, they figured it out and all is well with the equipment.  Baby Susan has been improving, too!!

Please keep Chase in your prayers for strength and endurance and for her patients to heal well after these long surgeries.  Please also pray for sleep for Chase!!

I've remained at Tenwek continuing with the water filter distribution, moving ENT equipment, delivering special LED lights to Korara Visually Impaired School,
visiting an orphanage that I haven't been to in the past and doing some work with Friends of Tenwek (a non-profit that I'm on the board with) helping to plan fundraising for a new Chaplaincy School here at Tenwek.  It's been a busy, but productive week!  I'm also waiting for another delivery of water filters this Thursday, I pray!!

Special LED lights for visually impaired students (thanks to Denise & Luis Perez)!

Thank you so much for your prayers!!
