Blessings for CAMM
How wonderful to have two working ambulances, a medical staff that works well together, and a roof without leaks! These are some of the blessings we cherish at the Lutheran Mobile Clinic in Malawi, Africa, part of the Central Africa Medical Mission operations.
Every day we give thanks for the two ambulances our staff uses to get to and from the villages where clinics are held. We no longer stress about not having a vehicle when one needs repair. As a mobile clinic, we depend on these vehicles.
We also depend on the staff to care for the people. We have a group of nurses who work very well together and enjoy their work. Grace Chaweza, our head nurse and Lutheran Church of Central Africa (LCCA) member, is in her second year of college to obtain a degree in health management. She steps in and helps at the clinic whenever she is on break from school. Grace is a recipient of the Althea Sauer Scholarship, which is awarded to African members of the LCCA to pursue nursing school, and a faithful servant with her time and talents.
A simple blessing was the repair of the roof at our residence. We are always grateful for rain in Malawi. It is vital to the people and their crops. This past year, however, the rain found its way into our living space. Lots of it. It is quite a surprise to see water where you don’t expect it. However, the problem was located and has been fixed. We are also thankful the cost was covered by insurance.
Until recently, the Lutheran Mobile Clinic experienced severe shortages in medications, fuel, and nutritional supplements. Most of these items, although expensive, are now becoming readily available. This is very important as we prepare for the upcoming malaria and respiratory/pneumonia season. Keeping an ample supply of medications and fuel continue to be our biggest challenges. Funds from Christian Aid and Relief and generous donors to CAMM assure our patients at the Lutheran Mobile Clinic that medications will be on hand and they will not be turned away.
We are grateful for all the blessings given to CAMM, specifically the Lutheran Mobile Clinic. Thank you for your prayers and support.
