Wednesday 1/30 our second medical mission. We went to the Malasiqui To set up our mission to a group of seniors. We checked blood pressure and temperature and sugar levels as in previous settings. I performed adjustments and worked on a few shoulders as well. The average age was in the 70’s. Maybe 80-90% had high blood pressure and high sugar. Lot of what appears to be both knee and ankle arthritis. They walk on concrete a lot and do not most have quality foot wear. In spite of these issues that I could not help, I was able to give some relief to many of them. However the most important thing was they had a chance to hear about Jesus and his sacrifice for our sins. Later we rested a little and got my first real manicure. My nails were in bad shape, snagging on people’s clothes. Nice and smooth and clean now. I guess it is s occupational hazard when you do construction for a hobby and work. Now they look like doctor’s hands, just with callouses. We ended day with a night time service outside in a neighborhood. Tom gave his testimony and there were songs in Tagalog and one in English. A late dinners at McDonald’s, still lots of confusion in the order. They can not get right. They write everyone’s order down then put into the register. That’s where it gets screwed up. No big deal, now our running joke about how it will take for ever to get food. Nothing else is open at 10pm. We got back to the hotel at 1145 or so. Long day. Tomorrow is the next medical mission to another senior group.
