Health Expos

Friday we finished up at the alamodome. It was such a blessing to be able to help all those that we did. Over the course of the 2.5 days, our lifestyle station was able to help around 1500 people, while the total clinic saw 6,193 people. We had to turn thousands away, but praise God we were able to help all those that we did!

This is a view from up on the bleachers.

After a restful Sabbath, Sunday we went to the George Gervin Academy to set up for a health expo on Monday.

It was so much fun, even though we were so busy! We had an expo for the elementary school children, and there was also an adult health expo for the academy students and parents. 

Setting up!

I helped here at the nutrition station, explaining why it is best to eat fruits and vegetables over sugary and fatty foods.  I took a swimming noodle and cut it longways in half and used it as arteries. Then we took colored water for healthy blood (to show what happens when you eat good food), and colored water thickened with cornstarch (to show what happens when we make unhealthy choices). 

Two tired guys...:)

All the kids!

The other side for adults and academy students

The guys were in charge of exercise...they had many exercise challenges for the other guys there.

Another end of a day!  It is such a blessing for me to be able to help others see how they can live healthy lives.  I hope each child we talked to today will be able to remember even just one thing we taught them. :)
