The project is such a blessing. The initiative and realization of it has been done by a brother who normally works as an architect. Jens attended Meet Ministry in Tennessee a while back, and ever since he is applying what he has learned by organizing all kinds of projects to train new (medical) missionaries. When I shared this with a friend in the US, she said: "Dr. Jackson would be proud" (that's the leader at Meet Ministry). Indeed, the knowledge that is received in these institutions by people from various cultural backgrounds is literally being applied all over the globe. I remember when I first came to Uchee Pines, there was this young pastor from Hungary who originally wanted to stay only about three months to improve his English. Well, he ended up doing the whole 18-months training, and now he is doing a great work in his home country.
The highlight was the health expo on Sunday afternoon. We invited the whole neighborhood. Although not too many "outsider" people came, it was fun teaching the eight laws of health to the church members and as well to a few non-Adventists.
What follows are some picture impressions, but it would be too much to post all the nice ones I have. I think I will post more on Facebook.

|Health Expo: "Information & Massage"|
|I was banned outside with my "Air" booth. Hilarious! In fact, they only asked me two hours before it started whether I would be willing to help out...|
|A curious little boy from the neighborhood|
|How to exercise properly|
|James from the US - specialist in cutting trees - quite impressive how he was able to climb this huge one|
|And this is how the tree looked afterwards - good job!|
