Lesotho NRT













We spent ten days in Lesotho preparing for and then conducting the Neonatal Resuscitation Training course with the visiting medical specialist and his wife. It was so cold there that we all had to wear our jackets inside each day. One hundred and seventy midwives and doctors were trained over the four days and they were all excited to go back and train their colleagues throughout the country. So many of them work where they have no electricity or any medical equipment. Each hospital and clinic was given bags and masks and other equipment that they can use to save babies' lives. It was a great experience and tomorrow we will be going to Swaziland to do the same training.

Bless those sweet babies and the great hearts of those who want so badly to help them. Little did we know when you were my fuzzy headed baby sister that one day you would be travelling through Africa saving bodies and saving souls. You and Uncle Terror are angels on earth. See you next month.
