We had a great medical camp today in an all-Muslim community here in Srinagar, Kashmir. The people were reluctant in coming at first, but as with most of these types of environments, they start slowly but build up steam as the day progresses.
According to the Doctors, we ended up seeing a little over 150 people in this hillside community at the foot of some mountains. My job: simply to interact with the people, learn names, direct them to our different stations, and pray for them as I "laid hands on them" while leading them around.
The Muslim community is a very difficult place to reach with the Gospel. We planted seeds for the local pastor, and we know that over time there will be much fruit.
After a late lunch, the team went shopping (need to bring gifts to my wife), then I had an extended time in the marketplace with the local pastor and one of our doctors, complete with a ride in an auto-rickshaw! Definitely a full day!
Tomorrow is our last day here, and we'll conduct a big medical camp in another un-reached Muslim community. Plus, we have to find a new place to spend the night on Wednesday. More fun!
