I had my interview at the hospital today with Dr. Velasquez. While we met we talked about my schedule, what my interests were, and then he showed me around the hospital. I am excited about being given an opportunity to volunteer at this hospital! Dr. Velasquez shared with me that they have a nursing school at the hospital, the girls that are in training stay there on campus and they are there for 3 years. They are not as qualified as nurses in the states.. this being true, the Dr. wants me to teach them what I know! All I could say was WHOA and WOW! 2 days a week I will be working with the mobil medical clinic that goes into the villages to care for the people who cannot pay for medical treatment. The other 2 days I will work in the hospital, hopefully getting to see some births! I unpacked today and got some rest before I start work tomorrow at the hospital. I was very thankful for a relaxed day!
Please pray that my nerves will settle down before tomorrow! I am nervous about starting work at a new place, speaking the language, and about all of the new people! I know it will be good but it is just hard to be going at this alone. I am praying for relationships to be formed as I work alongside many Hondurans and a few Americans in the hospital. Pray that the Lord will use me in whatever way He sees fit!
