When we arrived at the village (that is walking ¾ of a mile at the end) it reminded me of Wyoming. It was a beautiful and scenic place, with trees, mountains, red soil, horses, sheep, cows and corn fields.
With clinic outside we are able to view community life. The school looked relatively new and the children were all happy to be studying and of course to have recess. After school they run and play everywhere. But they are also responsible for carrying the water to the household. The young boys we saw carrying 10 gallon containers of water were between 5 – 10 years old. This seems like hard work, but it is their way of life.
As always we see the faith that is the center of their lives and the thankfulness in what little we can do for them. We have been truly blessed during this trip.
