This week has flown by! It is hard to believe all that has happened. We had busy days in Lemoa, with 31 patients on Thursday. We had a typical diabetic clinic in Chuguexa with 21 patients. The clinic in Mactzul I is growing and that is encouraging. Today, we finished in Chuchipaca with 16 patients.
We will not be having clinic next week due to Semana Santa. It will be a busy week for many reasons. The annual conference for the Churches of Christ will be held here in Chichicastenango. I was told that they are expecting 10,000 people.
One of our sisters lost her battle with pancreatic cancer yesterday morning. While she lost her physical battle, she has gained her crown in heaven. She was a sweet lady in the Chichi congregation that Lisa and I had been visiting. She will be missed but I am thankful that she no longer is in pain.
I went by the cemetery on my way home today and talked to several members from different congregations. It was good to see people and to give a few a ride up to the market!
Let the events of Semana Santa begin...................as I make a quick get-a-way OUT of Chichi!
