Midwifery training in Kahama

Next week, midwife Sarilyn Zimmerman will be training midwives in Kahama; this is with another organization but she and her husband John will be visiting the Muvuma orphanage. John plans to help with any ongoing projects - perhaps putting in a part of the ceiling or building shelves. 

It is wonderful to have got to the stage where people seek us out and ask what they can do to help. Thank you Sarilyn and John!
