Eswatini Day 2

Today was another good day. We saw about 180 patients.

What I learned today

I learned 2 people on the team know sign language.  I learned this because we had a wonderful patient with a great smile. She had 4 children her husband had died and she has HIV and TB. And to top it off one of the medications she was on for the TB had made her deaf. She was telling us about her current medical issues and kept smiling. Turns out someone in clinic had prayed for her and talked about Jesus and that had made her day.

It was a great reminder for me to keep the focus in the right place.
