JOY

No Joy Can Equal The Joy Of Serving Others Sai Baba

We have a super excited group of first- year nursing students on the medical ward. This is a challenging time for them because everything; is brand new to them. The nursing staff and, I supervise and mentor these students. The nursing students are very eager to administer medication, so I instructed them in detail on how to properly give medications to patients. I taught them how to dilute/ draw up medication in a syringe. I also instructed them on how to remove air bubbles from a syringe. I gave a live patient demonstration on how to administer IV medication. The nursing students under my supervision enjoyed diluting/drawing up medications and administering medications. What an awesome joy it is to serve these first- year nursing students by mentoring them!

Appointed

In the church God has appointed those able to help others I Corinthian 12-28

Young people should be carefree, and hopefully about their future. This is not the case for Judith my teenage patient because she has rheumatic heart disease. She has been battling with this disease since 2016. She was readmitted recently to the medical ward; with generalized body swelling fever and cough. We have treated her with IV medications, and oral medications for her DX: RHD. Her prognosis is poor although her condition has improved. She is now ready to be discharged home. I did in-depth medication teaching with her, and her attendant. I instructed her caretaker to make sure; she eats food before she takes her medications. Judith’s caregiver was instructed if any changes in her medical condition; to take her back to the hospital A.S.A.P. Please pray for this precious teenager that God will heal her, and she will become a Christian!

Jesus Said

Jesus said, ‘‘take care of my sheep” John 21:16

IMG_1077

Papa Jimmy was admitted to the medical ward with DX: of abdominal TB, and severe anemia. He is weak and has poor appetite. We treated his severe anemia with several transfusions. Papa has been on anti TB medication since November 2017; but he has poor adherent to his treatment plan. I and the nursing staff have been instructing his caretaker; to make sure he is taking his anti TB medication.  We suggested to his caretaker that Papa’s medication can be crushed, and put into his food. Papa’s caretaker has become overwhelmed with taking care of Papa Jimmy, and at times has left him alone. The family has decide to transfer him; to another hospital where Papa’s daughter in law works. Please pray that his condition will improve, and he will be compliant with taking his anti TB medications. Pray that Papa will get saved.

{The Name}

They will call him Immanuel which means “God with us” Matthew 1-23

IMG_1042

The highlight this month for me has been teaching; our sponsored kids about the birth of Jesus! I read to my kids how the birth of Jesus was foretold by the angel Gabriel. (Luke 1-26-36) I also taught them how the birth of Jesus came about. (Matthew 1- 18-24) My main emphasis was on the name of Jesus. I told my kids that Jesus is the Greek form; of the name Joshua which means the Lord saves. I shared with them that the name of Jesus; means the anointed one in Greek and in Hebrew. I taught my kids that Jesus is the anointed one who came to save us, and died for our sins. I told them that Jesus is knocking on the door of their hearts, and he wants to have a personal relationship with them. I asked if anyone wanted to accept Jesus as their Savior. To my surprise an adult visitor named Jimmy accepted the Lord! Please pray that Jimmy will grow, and blossom in his walk in the Lord.

Prayer requests: I would have many opportunities to share the gospel in 2018. I would reflect the light, and love of Jesus in all I do.

I pray that God will bless and keep you! Happy New Year to you all!

WHAT A LOVE

               God is love 1John 4:16

IMG_0989IMG_0991

IMG_1011IMG_1024

I wish you could have seen the puzzled look on our sponsored kids’ faces; as I asked them what did God create on the sixth day. As they stared at me I told them God created Adam and Eve. Using a colorfully illustrated bible story book; I acted out the creation   story found in Genesis Ch. 2&3. I asked my kids why did Adam and Eve hid from God? My kids told me that they had hidden because they were naked, and had eaten the forbidden fruit. I taught our sponsored kids that disobedience is a sin, and sin separates us from God. I also taught them that God is love and, he demonstrated his great love for us by sending Jesus to die on a cross for our sins. I invited them to raise their hand if they want to receive Jesus as their personal savior. I waited for a few minutes, and no one raised their hand. Please pray that God will soften our sponsored kid’s hearts, and they will come to realize how much God loves them.

 Prayer requests: That God will fill my heart with his love and compassion. Additional financial support for my ministry.

Offering

Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. *1 Peter 4-9*

IMG_0972

IMG_0981

Intern nurses face many challenges because they are not allowed; to do their one- year residency in their home district. They must assimilate to living and, working in another district. Lydia and Doris are intern nurses, who have just started their 3 months medical ward rotation. On their first day, I orientated them, and took them on a general tour of the ward. I assigned Lydia to take patients’ blood samples. She informed me that the last time she took a patient’s blood sample was in Feb. I accompanied her, and gave her moral support as she obtained blood samples. We took the blood samples to the lab, and I instructed her and Doris on how to clock patients’ blood samples. The intern nurses expressed their sincere gratitude to the nursing staff for their moral support, and for warmly welcoming them to the medical ward. I thank God that I have been able to offer hospitality to the intern nurses in a tangible way!

Prayer requests: Wisdom and direction in all I do. Additional monthly support.

FIRST TIME EXPERIENCE

As God’s chosen people… clothe yourself with… kindness. (Colosians3:12)

IMG_0952    IMG_0951

IMG_0950     IMG_0941

We have a group of eager to learn first- year nursing students on the ward, and they are getting hands on experience. I taught them step by step how to obtain a blood sample. They are applying tourniquets and, searching for veins on each other. The nursing students accompany me as I take blood samples on patients. Now the time has come for them to put into practice what they have learned.

The intern doctor on duty informed me that Papa Ogwang hemoglobin level was 5.2 and, he requested that I obtain blood for him A.S.A.P. Nursing student Andrea obtained Papa’s blood sample on his first attempt! We took the blood sample to the lab, and obtained Papa Ogwang blood. I hanged up Papa’s blood, and closely monitored it. Mentoring nursing students and, being kind to them is such a blessing to me!

 Prayer requests: That I will be filled with the fruits of the Spirit. The light of Jesus will be reflected in all I do.
