I hung out at Renee’s last night with these two boys and the handful of other kids she already had staying with her. Talking with her and hearing her stories really made me understand how nice it will be to have a nursing degree. Both Renee and Katie act as doctors to hundreds if not thousands of people. Neither have any “official” medical training, but both have been willing to let God use them and have learned as they go. Katie hasn’t talked to me much about what she does, but Renee’s skill-set is pretty impressive.
If somebody asked me what I did this weekend I would have a pretty entertaining response. “I went over to a friend’s house and fed some malnourished children. After that I got an HIV test done on me. All in all it was a pretty fun night.” Don’t worry, I don’t have HIV. I was just interested in seeing how to do the test.
