First day of clinic

It is Wednesday September 24th, 2008 here in Chachengsaou, Thailand and the whole mission team arrived in good health yesterday. Today we completed our first day of clinic and helped 2599 people with dialations, eye health exams and glasses if they were needed. Our hosts, the Thailand Lion's clubs have been fantasic hosts. They have recognized the team many times with a fabulous dinner, traditional dancers, and many speakers from the government and the Lion's club on both days since we have been here. Today the Public Health Minister of Thailand visited the mission for a short ceremony and dedication.

Steve Stockton, Mission Manager wrote that we have had a very successful day with minimal problems. the Lion's club is the best in Thailand. The people are all smiles and very easy to work with. The Military and student translators have been so helpful. We are looking forward to another great day tomorrow.
