Early this morning amidst a few scattered snowflakes we left Mankato at 2 am and our adventure began. It was a long but uneventful day. We sailed through customs in Guatemala City and Adrian was waiting for us.
Our drive to the mission brought us past the familiar burning fields of sugar cane and the occasional not-so-pleasant smell of rubber trees burning. We are now settled in at the Iquitui. All of us need a good night sleep.
A bit about our team:
Katie and Samira will be working intake. Emily, Cathy, and myself are providers and we have 3 pharmacy specialists: Michele, Amy, and Colin. Michele is a physical therapist so she will also be treating many of our patients with muscle pain. Amy is also a nurse so she will, as usual, be wearing many hats.
We are all thankful for this opportunity and appreciate all the support back home.
Please keep us in your prayers. We are off to a great start!
