Ways you know you’re at a medical conference…
1) When you get to the conference and start seeing signs on rooms saying things like: Breakout: Infectious Diarrhea; Viral Meningitis and Closure of Upper Flaps.
2) At breakfast, a guy is demonstrating a surgery procedure on a dinner roll with a butter knife.
3) There are limbless infant CPR dummies lined up in the back of the room where you’re having worship.
Carmen was super busy, attending up to 7 academic courses a day but we managed to squeeze in time at meals and afternoon swims and nightime game play. The girls enjoyed having sleepovers in each other’s hotel rooms and Carmen and I loved the niece/aunt bonding time with the girls. Most of the attendees at CMDA were doctors, nurses, and dentists serving all over the world- mostly in underserved underdeveloped and developing countries. It was a very interesting and kind group of people and we enjoyed getting to know some of them and worshipping together. The girls loved attending classes every morning and afternoon- meeting lots of friends, studying the names of God, swimming, watching movies, and making crafts.
Loving the playground
Monopoly Deal. Some of us NEVER get tiered of that game! 🙂
Claire and Lydia sleepover complete with a long bath and reading aloud.
The kids sang at the evening worship time: “Name Above all Names” “On a Day Like This” and “Heaven is a Wonderful Place”
Lots of pool time. All the girls had to work up a little courage for the waterslide. “We are physically confident and strong!”
Game play in the top bunk.
