We finished our last medical clinic in San Gabriel today. It was way up the mountain. What a beautiful ride! We stopped along the way and Dave was let out to take photos. I'll share them when he puts them into the computer.
The docs and Susan are at the parish pharmacy loading our medicines into the pharmacy. We leave behind our medicines for them to use. The docs - John, Bob and Cathy and nurse Susan are always so good about putting everything back to neatly. It takes a fair amount of time and they have worked really hard non-stop all day, but they are so amazingly caring and giving! The rest of the group is taking a tour with Andres and they will be back for supper at 6 p.m. at the parish center.
We served 62 people today and that puts us at 200 for the week. We all commented how gentle and sweet these people were. They look Guatemalan but have a different appearance. It's interesting. We worked near a dental clinic that was going on just outside the building we were in. It was a group from the states. The blood curdling cries of the kids as they had their teeth pulled sent shivers up our back and tears into Maggie's eyes. I'll try to load some more pictures!
Thanks to all who are thinking of us and to all who helped make this trip possible.
