  1. Well the start to your trip sounds wonderful!! Enjoy your warm weather because it is hanging in the 30’s here and we had that great freezing drizzle again last night. God Bless all of your for your time, compassion and knowledge!

  2. I was glad to hear you all made it safe to Tanzania and already have started work. I was wondering how the weather is. Althought the sun is finally out here it still is very cold – down into the single digits at night.

  3. Great to hear you’re off to a great start! If it gets too warm for you there, just think about the ‘Frozen Tundra’ at Lambeau to cool off. Also, in your spare(?) time, we’d appreciate a supplier of Tanzanian organic coffee for Perks in the lobby, and we would pay extra! (Just kidding; mostly : – ) Yet, really, thank you very much for doing the wonderful work of the mission on our behalf.

  4. Bob and Shirley,
    Just to let you know you are missed here, glad you all arrived good. I had a wonderful birthday with you could have been here for it. See you in a couple of weeks

  5. Glad to hear you are safe and sound. But Sally I think you should put Jeff in charge of toilets:)…then you won’t need a guardian!

  6. The first email notice was deleted as I did not recognize the name at first and thought it was on of those Nigerian letters asking for money. I had to chuckle when I realized my error. My attention is now focused.

  7. Just a quick note to let all of you know what an awlsome thing this is that your doing. You are giving of youselves. Not just a chunk of MoLa for the plane fare but you are giving your TIME! Something less and less people are willing to do. We’re so Proud of all of you. As for Dr. Schilling and Dr. Yee your clinic people at home miss you and can’t wait to hear the details about your trip. Hope to make this trip one day myself. March has come in like a lamb. Stay safe, Be happy and enjoy!!!!

  8. Glad your journey has been going well. Dennis, I worked for you on Monday and this morning. So glad to have a window to get my daily dose of sunshine. Is the sun shining where you are? Does it rain much? What are the temperatures like? It got up to about 40 degrees here today. Snow was a melting. Hope everyone is doing well. Thank you for sharing your time and talents with others that are in need! Can’t wait until the next blog!

  9. Jeff, so glad to get your e-mail today. Staying with farmers that are not part of your group? Thank God your a country boy! :). We are all missing you here. I have survived the first few rides with Sam driving. He does well. Drove out to Onalaska to pick up Ryan from Basketball and he did great…..however, i still feel sick while he is driving. :). I can’t wait for you to get back to help with this one (neither can he)! Our dinner conversation was all about you. Kids want to know exactly when you get back. Guess they’re already sick of me.:). Sam found a list Megan had made of animal skins she wanted you to try and bring home for her…..i didn’t see it because Sam told her the animals she listed were not legal to hunt, so she ripped the list outnof his hand and threw it away.:) We are all very proud of you for the work you are doing. Sounds like your 70yr old machine led to some challenges in the OR. I know you will figure it out and do great. We love you and are sending hugs!!

  10. Glad to hear of safe travels for you. Dr. Yee, we are missing you. I will need to be reminded pn how nice it is to be busy on your days here:) I’m sure your maintaining your composure on your hectic days. Keep smiling and sharing your artistic abilities. We will be anxious to hear all about it when you get back. We’ll even have a cold diet coke waiting for you! Take care and God bless you all!

  11. Jeff said you all had a great salad with mangos and avocados. He ask me to share this recipe with you all.

    Fruit Salad with Blackberry-Basil Vinaigrette

    8 cups gourmet salad greens
    1 1/2 cups sliced mango
    1 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
    1 cup blackberries
    1 large avocado sliced
    Toss all ingredients in a large bowl and serve immediately with Blackberry-Basil Vinaigrette. Arrange the salads on the plate to assure each serving has some of each ingredient.
    Blackberry-Basil Vinaigrette
    1/2 (10oz) jar seedless blackberry preserves
    1/4 cup red wine vinegar
    6 fresh basil leaves
    1 garlic clove, sliced
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon seasoned pepper
    3/4 cup vegetable oil
    Pulse blackberry preserves, red wine vinegar, and the next 4 ingredients in a blender 2 or 3 times until blended. With the blender running, pour vegetable oil through the food chute in a steady stream: Process until smooth. Chill before serving.

    Makes 8 generous salads.

    Hope you enjoy. This is a favorite here.

  12. Thank you for the vivid descriptions of sounds and power challenges and food there! It must be a peaceful place with few engines, although a back-up generator may have crossed your minds, evidently. Your visit has to be life-changing for the people whom you help with treatment and surgery. I learned yesterday that a longtime close friend has serious cancer — only people like you will be able to prolong his life. It’s important work, difficult work, and, at times, exhausting work that you do. Yet, amid all that, you bring hope, and healing, and new days dawning to many people. Keep on, and God bless.
