We traveled through perhaps the most beautiful scenery yet which we have seen in Mexico. The many beautiful shades of green grass and forested mountain areas brought breathtaking views at every turn. We set up our clinic in Playa Azul, a small village in the mountains of about 2000 people. This is tucked in an area which Father and Sister serve with a population of 30,000 people all of which are small mountain towns invisible as you drive along the mountain highways. This area is far in the south of Mexico - almost into Guatemala.
During our two and a half day clinic 26 villages brought people in to see our doctors. We saw 197 people with just 2 doctors, so as you might imagine we all worked very hard but were so happy to serve them. Their gratitude, respect and kindness at every turn was heartwarming. It is late as I write this. We are leaving early in the morning. We will share more of our experience in the next blog.
