A special thanks to Dawn Madson who stayed up late with me last night to help with this photo posting. We had more than a few laughs.
The children were such a delight and provided entertainment galore for us. Dawn, Cathy and Luke joined in games of tag, clowning around, soccer and lots of hugs and tickles. The people waiting in lines responded with pure laughter and joy at the interaction.
Our deluxe MDP scale. The people of the village covered it in plastic and brought pine needles to place under it because it was so muddy.

The building in the upper right hand corner was our clinic. It was far off the beaten road. The path to get there was very muddy and slippery but the people came.
Inside one of the churches where we set up a clinic. All three of the churches we worked in or near had floors covered in pine needles and simple tables for altars.
Luke uses his head to carry part of our 'pharmacy' to our clinic.
We huddled together to decide whether or not to take the steep, muddy mountain 'road.'
