On national tv...

Hello again.
Last week thursday I went to the official opening of our Mercy Ships New Steps center in Waterloo. New Steps focuses on rehabilitation for polio victims and war victims, using a holistic approach. About 400-500 people showed up for the opening, including representatives of the Ministry of Health and leaders of the local communities. To celebrate the event all Mercy Ships staff was wearing tailor made outfits out of the same material. Pretty funny sight!
On Friday I was watching the one and only local tv station in one of my team mate's rooms and the New Steps opening was on tv. It was a good overview of what took place and what the center is about. They even showed me and some of my colleagues sitting in the 'audience'. So that was fun to see. So that was my first time on national tv. :)

Wow, only there for 2 months and already famous!!!
Just wait till you're a few months into running the clinic, then all kinds of people will want to come and see the "great doc!!"
We really miss you here, but knowing what you're doing and the difference you're making somehow makes it easier to accept.
Hang in there! And keep us posted!
