Before we left Kapsowar, some of the staff of the hospital threw a farewell feast for us. Once again it is just humbling to see the generosity and gratitude in the hearts of the people at the hospital. Instead of blessing them, they continually blessed us.
It was a hard saying our goodbyes to everyone. Even though we were in Kapsowar for only a week, the friendships that were built and the memories were very precious. As we packed the vans and started to drive off, I lifted up one final prayer for the work in the hospital and the church.
Here are some pictures from our last day in Kapsowar:

[After] – watching the whole process, it really made me understand the “lamb/sheep” imagery in the Bible
Jacque had an incredible testimony of being one of the 15 doctors from Sudan that was sent off to Cuba during the Sudanese civil war to get trained as a doctor. He was placed in Kapsowar to get trained and ready to be sent back to Sudan to be one of the handful of doctors to reach millions of people. Now tell me, doesn’t he look like Manute Bol?
