As if it was not already clear, life is different here at Mbingo than what we are used to. Here are some examples:
This was the view from our front door a few days ago. The cows were being guided down our street to feed in the nearby meadow. The man who herds the cows is a Fulani, which is a nomadic people group throughout West Africa.
This is Chuck and Isaac at one of the markets near where we live. We kind of stick out in the crowd, but the people here have made us feel at home.
We need to go to the market every 1-2 days for fruits and vegetables. We are blessed that there is so much fresh produce available here like bananas.
Chuck started work this week and has been rounding on 25 patients each morning with the Cameroonian residents before going to clinic. Most of these patients have serious diagnoses and present to the hospital much later than people would in the US. We will share more about the hospital in an upcoming post. God has been faithful to provide all of our needs as we adjust to new surroundings.
