Today we did a medical brigade in Suyapa at a church. Suyapa is the poorest region of Tegucigulpa. The church was two levels and we were located on the upper level. The view of the city was beautiful from all the windows. In addition there was a cool breeze all day.
We also got to experience streets like San Francisco. As we were going back up the street in a van with 9 people and lots of suitcases, all I could think of was the little train that could……..I think I can, I think I can. The van made it safely up the hill and we were very glad to be at the top. It was a busy day with the providers seeing over 260 patients. We weren’t able to see everybody today. Tomorrow morning we return to the same church to finish seeing patients.
Daniella, Ale and Daniel will interpret for us tomorrow. We fondly refer to them as our “Honduras kids” because they’ve been a part of our ministry for several years. But they have to be back at school on Monday so they can’t join us next week.
Tomorrow the Rozenbooms and Burandts fly into Teguc. We will meet them at the airport and all of us ride the big yellow school bus to Hospital Bautista. Please pray for safety in their travels.
Jean woke with the flu this morning. She’s feeling better this evening. Prayer that she will feel better tomorrow. As team leader she has done alot of planning and was very disappointed she couldn’t join us today. It’s also a really long bus ride if you aren’t feeling well.
We thank God for all the people who touched our lives today through the medical brigade. God is good!
