Today (Saturday) started as usual with morning devotions on the rooftop with the sun starting to peek over the mountain top. After breakfast we headed to Quixaya (kee-shy-ah) for a short, hot busy day of clinic. Our 40 patients presented with gastritis, parasites, scabies, and the usual respiratory problems. We saw many adorable children in clinic that enjoyed the comedy of Chuck and his amusing antics. Since this was our last day of clinic we took all the medicines to the bodega (parish pharmacy warehouse) for use throughout the year.
Tonight after a team debriefing and a sharing of stories that have touched our hearts, we will pack up and prepare to leave San Lucas in the morning after Mass and breakfast.
While most of us were at the bodega, Sara and Chuck were given the tour of the projects that the San Lucas Parish mission is involved in. They visited the hospital, the Women's Center, the coffee area, the gardens and the reforestation project. This is always a meaningful tour to be a part of.
Each day we are aware of the caring thoughts and prayers from our family and friends from home. We are truly blessed both by the people here and you at home who keep us in your thoughts and prayers,
-Colette, Carol, Sara, Nancy, Chuck
