I am often asked what a normal day is like for us here in Honduras. If you’ve ever spent much time here visiting you know that we don’t have normal days. Today was one of those days. We started the day early, myself, Ally, Meredith, and our new intern, Cameron. We were headed way up into the jungle to visit 2 sick ladies. One lady, Doña Gumercinda with a severe infection several years old from a surgery gone wrong and the other a sister from the church in Las Pitas, Doña Pancha, who is believed to have a heart problem. The drive, however long, dusty, and bumpy is always beautiful. Ally and Meredith did what appeared to be a wonderful job examining the lady with the infection and then giving her the antibiotics that she needs to kill the infection. Then we were off to Doña Pancha’s house. A short hike, crossing a beautiful mountain stream. This was a bit more complicated. We had a portable EKG program that runs off of a computer but we needed electricity so we took the battery out of the truck and carried a power inverter along as well. We reached Pancha’s house and then, as happens so many times here, we began to wait. Ally and Meredith played with the little girls while Cameron and I talked about the crops, forest, and work with the men of the home. After about an hour Doña Pancha finally arrived. Ally and Meredith got all set up in a room in her mud brick house and they were ready to go, except for the fact that the computer malfunctioned and we were not successful in examining her heart. So, we’ve planned to return next week. It’s so great to get out in the villages and spend time with the people, something that we don’t do nearly as much now that the mission has grown so much. It’s our goal for it to be the face of local Christians that the locals see in their villages, but It’s nice to get to do it every once in a while. Enjoy the few pics.
