I've had on my closet door for months now an ever-expanding list of the things I need to blog about.
I am so hopelessly behind on my blogging that I'm reduced to catching you up on the last several months of big events in one fell swoop.

I spent a glorious weekend in Ghana with some great girlfriends, hiking in one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. And by "hiking" I mean "rappelling down a steep hillside holding onto vines in a very Indiana Jones-esque way." It was glorious! And the waterfalls were amazing and totally worth all 6 hours, especially since I have a "thing" for waterfalls since an experience in Benin last year.

Our first VVF screening (see previous post) went so much better than I could ever have dreamed. We screened 66 women and scheduled exactly enough for the first four weeks of surgery--exactly what we needed. It's amazing how God provides!
Since then, we've finished those four weeks of surgery and are in the final two weeks. We've been able to bring on a second VVF surgeon due to a maxillo-facial surgeon being unable to come. This past Monday we had our third and final screening, screening 51 women and scheduling 42 for surgery, once again filling perfectly our remaining surgical slots. God has wildly exceeded my expectations regarding screening, and He continues to do so each day that passes.
So there it is--the short version, minus the details. I can't promise that I'll have more time or emotional energy in the following weeks to do better at blogging, but know that I think of you all often.
