Blog Update – Monday, September 18th

Today we began taking medical clinics into the surrounding villages. It was quite an adventure. The morning clinic was to be held at a church which sits at the edge of a cliff in La Hermita. Unfortunately for a variety of reasons, and despite a back-up plan, we could not get a key to the church and so after an hour of waiting, the team ended up holding the clinic in the community leader’s house amidst chickens and hanging laundry. Fortunately,

Pastor Oswaldo is an evangelist minister and he is always eager to share the gospel, and thus he had a short service prepared for us and those villagers attending the clinic for us, as well as great gospel music. The clinic was quite successful and we saw

An amazing Thursday in Guatemala! The team split into little groups and achieved much today. The home the team built is now painted! Tomorrow the furniture goes in! The children were given new shoes and their smiles were huge when they saw them! A mat was put on the ground for them to colour, then put their shoes back on when finished. When the group arrived in the morning to start, the mom had put up two small Canadian flags on either side of the
