The Overflow

This morning started at 5 55 am for Jess and I, we had to be at the Hospital at 7 am to be able to go with the Mobil Clinic. So we met up with the crew and drove about 30 minutes to Agua Dulcita, a small village on the outskirts of Siguatepeque. We helped pull files, check vital signs, clean and pack up the equipment :) That was pretty much all we were good for! BUT it was interesting to observe and learn from what the others were doing. The Dentist that went with us was set up in the main room so we were able to watch her doin her "thing". This woman is INCREDIBLE, she pulled like 4 teeth and did a filling in ONE HOUR... and that is not counting what she did the rest of the day! The Doctor saw 25 patients from 9 am to 1 pm.

While these amazing people were in beast mode, Jess and I were probably frolicking about enjoying the scenery and our time in the village. Evidence...

After our time in Agua Dulcita, we drove back to Siguatepeque. Our friends dropped us off near our house so that we would not have to take a taxi all the way from the hospital! How awesome are they?? On the walk home we stopped for some icecream :)

I had a divine appointment on the walk home today.. Jess and I were walking along eating our icecream and someone said "Jessica!!!" and I turned around and it was the Pastor at the church that has the clinic that I worked in for the past 2 years! It was so good to see him! And even more divine that Jess and I needed to talk to him about starting work there some during the week! He said that they would be so glad to have us and that we could start tomorrow! I cannot wait to see Thelma and Dr. Suazo again! Praise the Lord for His provision!

We also made a Honduran meal tonight, well we really only made the tortillas but watched Jennifer make the rest. Here is a picture from the tortilla making extravaganza!

Bec... we painted Rebeca's fingernails and toenails with the polish that you sent! She loves it and says "Gracias"!

Today was such a good day, and I am VERY excited about being back at Hermon tomorrow! And being able to share this experience with Jess is indescribable, I have love watching her interact here! We serve a Great God!
