Hearty Welcome and first clinic

We arrived safely in Repalle to hundreds of children and young people greeting us with petals, garlands and fireworks. Their  smiling faces and chorus of ‘Welcome to India’ made the long journey seem so worthwhile. 

After a night’s sleep we set up the clinic and saw the youngest class. The children were treated for minor ailments and had some dentistry done (sometimes a bit traumatic!!) but for their long term good.

This afternoon we will have a tour of the IREF compound and work before the first evangelical meeting tonight.

Pray for the meetings that the young people will respond to the message. Pray for the USA pastors who will preach for the first time.

Pray for the clinic tomorrow….especially for a new steriliser as the one we have broke this morning!!
