The Lintons are wandering again!
Once again we’ve decided to head off from the NT and join the team at Galmi Hospital in rural Niger. This time we’ll be away for around 3 months.
We have just finished our first week here in Galmi, and our body clocks have finally creaked and groaned into an appropriate time zone. It has been a good week of reconnecting with people and attempting again to communicate in Hausa.
Malaria season is just starting to build up, and from our experience last year we know it will be a really busy time. Dr Anne-Sophie is the only long term maternity doctor in Galmi, and she has recently also stepped into the role of Chief Medical Officer of the hospital. I’m glad that I’ll be able to support her work during this busy time of year.
So – Sai anjima (see you later). We’ll keep some news coming by this blog. We would love to hear from you by email or WhatsApp. If you are the kind of person who prays, we would value your prayers for us and the people of Niger. Email us if you would like to receive more specific prayer points.
