First day in Repalle

Message from Lynn Leitch

We survived the overnight train journey and managed to get all our luggage off with the help of many college boys sent from Repalle.

The ‘hearty welcome’ from the children made the long journey seem so worthwhile. We were greeted with garlands and flower petals from a long line of excited kids who were all eager to find out our names and tell us theirs.

After breakfast we set up the clinic then had lunch before carrying out the first clinic with first and second class. Everything ran smoothly, despite a few tears over pulled teeth!

Tomorrow we will carry out a full day’s clinic then the gospel meetings will begin in the evening. Please pray for the busy clinics as some children become very anxious and the workers try to calm them and show compassion whilst administering healthcare.

Pray also for the 4 pastors who will preach at the gospel meetings and that God will prepare the hearts of the many thousands of people who will hear the message.
