Rainy Days...

We decided to grace Hermon today with our presence, and OH BOY were we ever glad that we did :) Haha, there were all of about 5 patients! However, Jess was given the opportunity today to give her first injection and she did WONDERFUL! I thought it was cool because I was able to teach her and watch her in action for the first time :) Not many people get to do that...

Our walk home was pretty today, you can check out Jess Young's blog if you want to see what it looks like :) We went into town today to run some errands, check out a clothing store called Charrion (Jess and I were actually surprised at their selection of clothing) and we hit up KOBS on the way out! Cookies and Cream on a waffle cone... mmmm, reminds me of home :) It rained on us most of the time we were in town but thankfully it slacked off as we started on our walk home. We took some pictures of the scenery and our precious friends!

Tomorrow we will go with the Community Clinic to El Porvenir. Hopefully there will be many more opportunities to practice skills!

"No Reserves, No Retreats, No Regrets" - William Borden. This quote has been on my mind and heart today. I want to "BE HERE" so bad that I can't see straight. It has been a day of missing my family, friends, church family, and just everyday things that you don't even realize. But even though I miss you guys, I wouldn't be anywhere else right now. I want to have no regrets when I leave this place and I want to know that I was obedient to do what the Lord called me to do every single step of the way. He has indeed given me a peace that surpasses all understanding and for that I am grateful!

Spanish Phrase of the Day is BACK!!!
Que le vaya bien! = (It's basically a way to say, "Have a good day, Go well")

Thanks for your comments, your prayers, and your love!

Having a child in another country (well, two children, counting you, and three if you throw Joe in the mix!) really brings that 'pray without ceasing' thing into a new reality. I don't know how to explain it except that there's a constant, hmmm...tune, maybe, running in the corners of my mind and heart that is a running prayer for you guys! Sometimes it's specific, with words and even harmonies, sometimes it's just a hum, but it's playing always.
Love you!
