Tanzania Volunteer Vacation - June 3, 2013

“20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” –Mark Twain

Today we spent most of the morning with Patricia at the clinic. We saw several patients including a 10 year old boy who tested positive for HIV. We also learned how to do a finger stick and draw blood for the MRDT – malaria rapid detection test. Thankfully all the patients we tested for malaria were negative. This afternoon, the work project was very different.  We painted the trim in one room of the mission house and the fireplace black.
