Talek Clinic visit: The old clinic.

New Clinic was funded by them and built in 2007. Now and X-Ray Room is being added by the Laceys.

Two hours before our arrival a baby was born at the clinic. Candi giving out baby gifts.

A feeding centre in honour of Jerry and Joyce Wasylyshen under construction funded by their children.

In the evening we celebrated Gord’s 60th Birthday. It was a blast. A bush dinner is what he wanted. We had done this for his 50th when he came on a trip.
