First of all, I am sorry it has taken this long. There is no service of either internet or phone in our hotel.
The medical team is having great success. They are seeing over 100 pàtients a day. The dentist is seeing over 20 a day. The eye doctor saw 52 people! They are in a church so the facility is very nice for them. They are blessing people and being blessed..
The childrens seminar in the morning is going quite well. We have 16 different churches represented who are learning how to teach children. We do feel they have the hearts to do this and we are privileged to be serving God in this way.
The afternoon session with the children out in a shanty town is another story. Whew, they are quite unruly- There are over 100 of them each day. They are not bad kids, just not very disciplined. Their living conditions are very sad. But they do not know the difference. While the program is not going exactly as planned. The laughter and smiles could not be louder! They are having a great time and we decided that is what it is all about. Not our plans, but His plans! His plan is for us to play, hug, kiss their cheeks, give them piggy back rides, until we drop! We are teaching them about God´s love and showing them even more loudly! Again, a privilege to be here.
The children´s team is dead tired, but giving their all each day.
We are all well and getting along well, another blessing from God.
Tomorrow, Sunday, we are going to church and then take a boat ride on the Amazon. It is our day of rest, and do we need it...
This is being written from an internet cafe next to our hotel!
Happy Father´s Day tomorrow to my daddy whom I love with all my heart!
Thank you for the prayers that are being lifted up. We feel them and need them.
There were NO problems getting any of the meds through customs as we pretended we did not understand what they were saying and kind of pushed our way through!!
Love to all of you and see you here again..
