We saw about 40 patients but many cases were more complicated. The translators had to really work for their “pay” today with a lot of translation into Cakchiquiel (the Mayan language). When discussing depression or abdominal pain it can be confusing, but is so important to get right. Bridget and Gabby's brains were near exploding!
Our two nurses – Carissa and Mackenzie along with Emily went on a house call to treat a whole family for Lice. They went a long way into town to a home of a family with a clay house. It had a tin roof and ducks as pets. The Mom was developmentally challenged. The grandparents cared for the family. It left a lasting impression on those who went.
Tonight we will dine at the Hotel Toliman. It has great food and the best Tortilla soup this side of the international time line. Yes we are roughing it.
Our team has formed into a well-oiled machine and we have allowed our individual personalities to come out and have been laughing and teasing each other about almost everything. It has been fun to see near strangers with a common cause become good friends in such a short time. It shows what God can do when we allow Him to work with and through us.
Thank you to all of you at home who are praying for us and supporting us!!!
