Friday was a busy day with over 80 patients who needed double interpretation. Imagine going to clinic with your uncle, cousin, two sisters and a grandparent, and all feeling sick with different problems. We had several families in this situation today. Thankfully they can be open about their problems in front of families, but it does take time to gather all this information as everyone has their own idea of what is really the problem.
We had clinic in the most awesome building. The people in this village had a great vision for their future. A beautiful modern church was built high on the side of the hill. Next to this church is a beautiful large two story clinic that would house multiple doctor offices, dental, pediatrics, surgery and multiple other services. Now it is being used for community health and visiting medical personnel. We were so blessed to work in such a private area for the good of our patients.
