Carlos led the meeting , which was started with a devotional. Then he talked about decision making processes using urgency and importance as guidelines.
Many of you have met Pedro, who is a guard at the clinic. He usually opens the gate and welcomes everyone as they arrive. He has been working for HTI for 15 years and now he is retiring. He will really be missed but we wish him the best. I think we will continue to see him at the clinic from time to time.
We had a contest for designing a T-shirt. There were 3 separate ties so these guys are trying to count the last ballots to see who the real winner will be. Nydia from the dental area won it. Congratulations Nydia! She told me she hopes to travel to Tikal with a family member.
The staff in Montellano wanted to prepare a turkey and ham dinner for us. We thought this was really nice of them since this is not a traditional meal for them. Carlos was helping out in the kitchen with Lisa, Sylvia and Nydia.
While dinner was being prepared, Neva checked back to The States and said hello to her family.
The guys enjoyed a soccor game.
The first of three turkeys is pulled from the oven.
There were 49 of us and we enjoyed the food!
I think that everyone ate as much as they could!
Then we were told the desert was apple crisp!!
It was a good day of fellowship, singing, refecting on some important points and enjoying a good meal together.
One have more day and then we will return our homes.
