The Registration Table: Before the patients could enter for a check-up, their names and other first-hand information had to be written down on sheets of paper, as well as on the major list. Christin was assigned here, as well as my sister Hannah, and Zarah, our pastor's daughter.

The Vital Signs Booth: Several caregivers and nurses-to-be were assigned to this area. Their job was to get the blood pressure, pulse rate, temperature, weight, and other vital information of the patient and write them on the patient's sheet for the doctor's reference.

The Waiting Room: Here, the patients had a chance to talk to the counselors (some of our church's members) while waiting to be called.

The Doctors' Area: This was where all the doctors (there were six of them) saw to the needs of the patients. My sister Damaris and I were assigned here as runners. It was our duty to see to the needs of the doctors and to escort the patients to the Pharmacy.

Pharmacy: Here, the nurses and other nurses-to-be were assigned to give the prescribed medicines to the patients. [The little boy in the middle of the picture is my brother, Jotham. He was assigned to give out the foot wash. :)]

Snack Table: In this area, snacks and tracts were handed out to the patients before they left the church. Some of them went back to the waiting area to talk to the counselors.
