We have been seriously lacking power these last few days. The candle in the photo pretty much sums up our evenings. We tested 80 people for HIV on Thursday and Friday. I took blood once every three minutes on average. The percentages of positive people were scarily high. But we had the chance to talk with them telling them about treatments and just letting them know that HIV doesn't mean death. On Friday afternoon me, Hannah and Elia (the resident mexican we're staying with) went into a school and talked to 16 year olds about the dangers of HIV and how to prevent the spreading of it. Hannah's been doing writing and reading with the children at the school. But the topic of fruit and vegetables is proving not easy to teach. The kids talked about crazy vegetables no English person has ever heard of.
We travelled to jinja yesterday hoping to go rafting today but we have postponed to next Saturday. Hannah is having some bad side effects to the malaria tablets, she has been very sick so we really appreciate all prayers.
We are both starting to miss some creature comforts from home. I'm struggling not being able to snack on junk food every 15 minutes, really do miss wotsits. Hannah's missing having a hot squash before going to bed.
Will get some videos of the kids singing some maranatha classics uploaded soon.
