This afternoon, we had an IVAA/ Pap Class in Patzibal. Sally, a friend of mine lives there and she has a clinic once a week. She enjoys working with pregnant ladies and teaching the midwifes.
Today was exciting for me because Sandra translated for us into K'iche'. She was in the ABC program and then continued to study to be a teacher. She will soon have her teaching license and be able to work as a teacher. She is also interested in continuing to study to be a dentist.
There were about 16 ladies in the class and before we finished, 11 had signed up for the clinic. We will look at doing the clinic in August, after Sally and Erv return from visiting their family in The States.
I do not have a photo of us today but this is a photo of Sandra and I last October. She has done very well and am so proud of her!
