I am working in the COVID / Respiratory Ward this week. It is a great place to be, but it can be hard. In the past 24 hours we have lost two patients . . . one from COVID, the other from renal failure. On the other hand, the chance to be in the midst of suffering as a source of compassion is a great privilege. I would likely feel different if I was the one going through the suffering. Being amidst suffering is definitely different than suffering itself.
I really enjoy my work. I like teaching, and I like serving the sick patients in the hospital. I like my Kenyan colleagues from whom I learn so much. Every day is a challenge, but (almost) every day is good.
Thanks for supporting us in our work. I believe that God is doing good things in Kijabe!
