  1. Thank you all for being willing to take your time, talents and compassion to such an area of need. Thank you for sharing your stories and pictures. Your experience has touched many hearts, including mine and I am thankful to know and work with such an extraordinary group of people at G/L….especially in Beh Health. Kudos to Bryce for taking the initiative to participate….you are a very wise young man.

    Miss you all and thanks again for sharing!!!

    P.S. Dennis/Denyse/Bryce….I have a new family member, 1 yr old, from humane society…..her name is “Maggie Sharon”…..and she is a Shitzu mix!!!! She adores Casey!!

  2. Wonderful Pictures. I was reading through the post about what we take for granted. I remember last year when Phil came back to his practice how frustrating all of the paperwork was. Also in some of your posts, most of you talk about how gracious and thankful the Tanzanian people are. That has become few and far between in medicine here. I think what you are all doing is wonderful and God bless you for it. Enjoy the rest of your time, even if it is without water or lights…

  3. Hello from Dennis’s sister Carol in snowy MN! Its wonderful to read about the great work you all are doing, though hard to imagine it. Thanks for being such great stewards to those less fortunate and for sharing your stories (and theirs) with all of us. I think of you often and wonder what your days are like over there on the other side of the world…..I hope you didn’t need the book on Snakes of Africa that apparently arrived in Stoddard too late! Have a great time exploring where the wild ones are!! (by the way Den say Hi to my neighbor Rick!?…..we got an email from Jacob….it is a small world after all). Love ya much.

  4. You are all amazing! To travel so far, to pay your own way, to give your time and skill and service for people so grateful. We are all blessed in what you do. Thank you for the delightful photos, and the description of how unaware we are of how much of the rest of the world’s people live. It’s humbling to read; thank you.

    This morning’s snow outlines every branch and twig in white like a Christmas card where no wind yet blows, indeed what there was last evening carried a faint hint of the smell of spring as it drifted out of the south without a bite at all. There are rabbit tracks everywhere this morning, large and small. The birds are singing in spite of the weather. I heard geese moving upriver last evening. The red osier dogwood, cornus sericea, glows red wine-stemmed in it shrubby clumps on the margins of the wetlands, its radiance a forerunner of all the beautiful spring colors to come. It was a favorite plant of our Native American forebearers, ceremonial, medicinal, nourishing, and utilitarian. Baskets from those red stems still appear at farmer’s markets sometimes. A niece on a college trip in Tanzania some three years ago helped catalog native medicinal plants there as a biology major (now a med student at the UofM) to protect these flora from patenting for the indigenous people. Good work; much to do. Thank you for the poignant description of the need for mental health care there. With such care not what it should be in general in this nation, one can only imagine… Prayers for those people, and for you. Godspeed on your days ahead!

  5. Its been a real treat following your medical adventure in Tanzania. Sounds like everyone is staying healthy and smiling a lot. I wish I could listen to the music of the locals your blog refers to often. What you are doing is priceless. A special shout out to Dennis Denyse and my fishing nephew Bryce. Looking forward to hearing more and seeing more pics. Have fun on the safari. Love brother Burt
