Manado – Day 2

Today we visited Sam Ratulangi University in Manado.  SRU is one of a VERY few Christian Universities in Indonesia (there are a few Catholic Universities).  LDS Charities donates to many of the universities in Indonesia (Muslim or otherwise) and does not distinguish the recipient.  Dr. Jarstad was on the Navy Hospital Ship in 2012 and it happened to dock in Manado and that is how the relationship with SRU began.  Since then, there have been a number of donations of equipment, lenses, books, and lectures.

Still using some very antiquated techniques, but making progress!
