Carlos met with the Chief of the Kasempa district, who was excited about the visit, and asked if a medical clinic could be conducted in his village. The team now has that clinic planned for Friday.

Today (they are six hours ahead of us) they visited the leper colony and ministered to about 20 families with 2 doctors. There are many opportunities for future ministry among these people.

The team is asking for prayer that the rain let up. It is currently down pouring, and it is hampering a few of the team’s activities. Harry Pressley begins his Inductive Bible Study course today, but only about 25 of the 100 people registered came for the first day of instruction because the rains make travel so difficult. Also the next days clinics will fair better under dryer conditions.

Otherwise, everyone is well and blessed.

The photos posted here are also available at the Lumba Ministries website. Pictured below is the team sorting medications for the upcoming medical clinics.

The doctors and workers at Mukinge hospital received the gifts from our church gladly. Mukinge is a mission station and hospital about 30 minutes away from Lumba by car.

This is the new guest room that has been built on the side of the Calvary Center (which our church financed and helped build in the Summer of 2006).

Workers prepare the site, and Fred and Harry inspect the newly poured base for the radio station tower. When Lumba’s tower is finished, it will broadcast the only FM station in the area, carrying Bible teaching to the people of Kasempa.
