Lady's Class in Chichi

As many of you know, we have to remain very flexible in our work.  Sometimes things happen that we have no control over and we just have to roll with the day......sometimes with Plan B and sometimes with Plan C.

Today, we had clinics scheduled in Xepocol but the road was closed due to construction.  We planned on having medical and dental clinics in the morning and a class for the ABC families in the afternoon.  Because of the road situation, we had to cancel the clinics.

Gaspar was able to continue with the ABC Class in the afternoon and I was excited to hear about this.  This is exactly what we want to accomplish.  Eventually, the Guatemalans will do the classes and educate their community.  It is exciting to watch them grow and to do things that they have not done in the past.

I did a class this afternoon for the ladies in Chichi.  We do not have the ABC Program in this area but the ladies had asked for a class on health and hygiene.  Mauri was able to come and translate for me.  Thank you, Kemmel!  We had 9 women in the class and it went well.  They had a lot of questions since this is the first time the had heard the material. It was a good class and I hope to return to be with them at a later date.
