Clinic Blog: 2012 India 3 Clinic Blog
October 12, 2012
We left the hotel at our normal 7:00 but after 2 hours we had to stop for a flat tire. Luckily we were very near a beautiful old temple, so we walked over for a tour while we waited. We were met by the high priest, who welcomed us and presented us with gifts. An hour later we were back on the road, but 10 minutes before arriving at the clinic our new tire blew out. The clinic sent a school bus for us, and we arrived at 11:30; a 4 ½ hour drive. Scott summed it up. “Air conditioner off…air conditioner on…air conditioner off…air conditioner on…flat tire 1…flat tire 2…walk…walk…walk”.
But it was a fantastic day anyway. Even after such a late start, we saw over 900 patients. Stephanie shared that one man asked her in broken English “Where are you from?” She answered “the United States”. He replied, “No, you are from heaven. You are giving us eye sight. You are like a God to me”. That's what One Sight is all about!
