I learned all about the "mobil clinic" today! 2 days a week, I will be working with them and I loved what we did today! We left the hospital at 7 am to go to Santa Rosita, a village about an hour away from Siguatepque. I rode in the "ambulance" with Dr. Leo, Dr. Miguel, Alex, and Roscelia, all of which are WONDERFUL! When we arrived, there were about 20 families waiting on us at the Centro de Salud and immediately the team began to take action. Not in a way that one would think by being busy but instead ministering to the people. A story from the Bible was shared in their native tongue and we were able to pray with them. The unloading of boxes, setting up stations, and the gathering of information from patients, and beginning to meet the patients needs immediately followed the time we gave to the Lord. My job was to take their blood pressure (pression aterial) and their weight (peso). After I finished with all of the patients, which was around 30 people, I helped Roscelia in the pharmacy. We did not eat lunch until around 1:30 but the morning went by quickly! After eating we packed up the boxes, loaded the "ambulance", and said our goodbyes we worked our way back down the mountain. Speaking spanish for 8 hours straight with no english was quite interesting! Kind of a bittersweet deal, I am glad I got to practice and I liked speaking with the locals BUT I had a major headache when I got home!
Jennifer and Rebeca picked me up at the hospital today. After they picked me up, Rebeca and I went back to the house while Jennifer went to her class. We had fun :) Max bit my ankles again.. I just thought he had matured! HAHA (Jess, these pictures of Max and Princess are for you!!!)
Our line is hooked up here at the house... Osmany found a Linksys product that allows us to call out of Honduras to the states for a very cheap rate and for anyone who has a (318) area code to call us just like it is a local call, which means it is free for you guys! I would love to hear from you! Our number is (318) 402-0784.
Tomorrow I will be at the hospital all day, or at least that is what it is looking like. I am not really sure what to expect but I'm sure it will be wonderful! Thank you for all of your prayers, they are being answered! Please continue to pray for language fluency, relationships, and for the team from North Monroe that is coming in 4 days! Ah, what a week this is going to be!
Spanish phrase of the day:
"No Se!" --> I don't know!
