Today, several of us went to Xepocol for clinic. Gaspar told me that he was concerned that we would not have many patients since it is the big market day in Chichi but we did ok.

This is Dave and Sara Beth.  Dave is a pathologist, who is willing to come down here and do anything that he can do.  Sarah Beth is an intern and will spend a few weeks with us after the group leaves.  She will live with Tomas' family during this time.

This is Kay and Nancy.  Kay did all of our vital signs today before the patients went for consult.  Nancy is a mid-wife so she helped us with our pregnant ladies and those who needed something special.

This is one of the first patients we had during the morning.  He was enjoying the attention that he was getting.  Abby is to the left of Kay and Nancy.  She helped translate today and keep things organized.

This is Lydia with one of the patients.  Lydia prayed with the patients after their consult.   Prayer is very important in our clinics.  The patients need to know why we do what we do and that we want to share the gospel with them. 

We finished the day with 26 dental patients and 16 medical patients.  It was a good day.  We will have two clinics tomorrow and I am sure it will be another good day.
