Please leave your comments and thoughts. They are an encouragement to me and the people who are taking time and money to sponsor the surgeries.
This is Joas and he was born with syndactyly. He is a cute little guy and we will see what we can do for him.
This is Brandon and he will have his palate repaired on this trip.

Her surgery will be sponsored by Angie, from Morganton, NC.
Doris and Beverly from Lenoir, NC will be helping Milton.
Milton is 9 months old and will have his lip repaired. I have a feeling the nurses will have a fun time playing with Milton.

Our last baby will be Juan Saqiuic and he will have his palate surgery.

The surgical team of 61 will be lead by Rick and they will arrive on August 6th. A clinic in Chichi, ASELSI, will take care of transportation for several of these children and their parents. One group will be arriving with Hector from Sololoa. Another group will arrive, driven by Solomon's Porch from Panajachel. Many thanks to those who are helping with transportation.
Please pray that everyone has safe travels and that we have a week of many successful surgeries. One thing that we do in the evening, is pray for each patient by name. Prayer is very important throughout the day and then in the evening, equally important, is a prayer for thanksgiving.
I will keep you posted as we start on August 6th!
