Hey Villagers- Bridget wrote us!!!
I have been in Fort Portal only 3 days and there is so much to tell...I caught my first baby yesterday - it was like nothing else - the whole time I was praying the child and the mother would live - thanks be to God they did! This might sound silly but it was all I could think of - I don't think I have ever prayed that intensly.
I also assisted a delivery outside by the outhouses. The baby came, a breech that had to be recesitated - the nurse ran inside and left me with the mother. As I felt her abdomen I found there was a second child so I walked her into the unit and we delivered the second... I could go on and on but I only have a brief minute to email so...
The sisters are very nice to me - they are so welcoming and loving - it is even a bit overwhelming :). I am safe and learning so much - I am often humbled by what I encounter - this is very good for me.
Please send the Village my love. I will try to email more later.
In Christ, Bridget
ps. if you're looking for a moped, Uganda is the place to go... I believe there are more mopeds than cars here ... they call them "bota botas" because they were originally used to transfer them from "Border to Border"... now they are everywhere.
