The last leg and eye patients have returned to their villages, and the trunks are being packed away for another year! It was a great couple of weeks of ministry by Prosthetic Promises in His Name here at New Day! Thanks to John & Erin for these pictures that chronicle their last few days at New Day!

Remember Arnold from back in 2012??

The team had to go WAY out into a village to do a fitting on a 13 year old girl. Her poor mom has a lot of medical issues as well. So much need around us!
The 2 hour trip to find her village had a lot of roads that looked like this..
Pretty amazing to do a fitting under a tree in Africa..
This man was pretty excited about his leg!
Chris is praising the Lord!
So is he, after getting his leg!

A rare natural smile from Mweene & Phillip!
Oh my goodness....this old lady was hilarious!! She danced around once she got her new eye, and when Blu told her she could take it out and clean it, she said, "NO!! I'm not taking this out! The doctor put this in, and I'm NOT taking it out! If I take it out and set it down, a chicken might come by and eat it! Then I will have to kill that chicken because he ate my eye! Then I will have to find the chicken's owner and kill him for letting his chicken eat my eye!!" It was hilarious!!!!
Debbie's sister and niece have been here visiting as well - Sarah has loved playing with the babies!
