MISSION CAPSULE: In Nepal, Annakala Nepali was living in significant discomfort. Severe problems with her fingers, along with loss of sensation in her legs and tingling in her body were followed by vision problems. In Annakala’s community, many people prefer traditional healers to address their medical problems - Annakala decided to do the same. However, she still suffered after the visit. Her daughter-in-law, on seeing her in pain and suspecting that it might be due to leprosy, encouraged Annakala to visit the PWS&D supported Shining Hospital. Once she was admitted to the hospital, she was officially diagnosed with leprosy and began treatment, which has improved her symptoms and pain. Annakala is very grateful for the Shining Hospital’s care, love and support.

GREAT LAKES: Contained within Lake Superior is a whopping 10% of the world’s fresh surface water.

It is estimated there are about 100 million lake trout in Lake Superior. That’s nearly one fifth of the human population of North America.

There are small outlets through which water leaves Lake Superior. It takes two centuries for all the water in the lake to replace itself.

AND FROM THE CHILDREN:

What’s the difference between Moms and Dads?

1. Moms work at work and work at home and Dads just go to work at work.

2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.

3. Dads are taller and stronger, but moms have all the real power cause that’s who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friends.

4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine…

What does your mom do in her spare time?

1. Mothers don’t do spare time.

2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.

What would it take to make your mom perfect?

1. On the inside she’s already perfect. Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.

2. Diet. You know, her hair. I’d diet, maybe blue.

If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?

1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I’d get rid of that.

2. I’d make my mom smarter. Then she would know it was my sister who did it not me.

3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes in the back of her head.

Have a good week everyone, I will be away enjoying. MB
