Mat & Katy Linley

“We are very thankful for the new young doctor, Tefy who is working alongside Katy. He is doing really well. Work here can be brutal however, with lots of difficult and tragic cases. On Friday for example, four babies died. Yesterday, another baby died (tetanus) as well as an 18-year-old girl (malaria) and an older man (septicemia). We often see terminal disease in young people. All this suffering can be hard to adjust to for a new doctor and even for those of us who are more ‘used to it’ we must find the balance between clinical detachment and emotional over-involvement as we seek to serve with compassion. Please pray for compassion and Christ-likeness for all of our staff as we serve the people of this area.”
