One group went to the Chichicastenango Church of Christ. They brought several books and some educational materials. Their focus will be reading this week and primarily helping the mothers understand. Many parents are not able to read and therefore when their children need assistance, they are unable to help them. We have seen many changes in the last few years. Children are staying in school longer, many are able to go to high school or college and now are growing taller than their parents. Very good changes!
Another group of us went to Lemoa to hold our normal Monday clinic. We finished with thirty-three medical patients, twelve dental cleaning, plus the patients that both dentists saw.
Teresa cleaning and getting ready to bust all day! This girl works very hard and you can tell that she really enjoys the opportunity to work for Health Talents.
Kemmel on the phone......this is normal that his phone rings twenty-two hours a day.
One of our friends left this morning at 0530 for Zona Reina. She has just arrived after an eleven hour drive! Jennifer is a physical therapist and works with ASELSI. I have been to Zona Reina twice and LOVE it!! I know.........that it is hot, there is no water, many places do not have electricity and you have to bathe in the river but I LOVE it! Safe travels Jennifer and we will see you when you return to Chichi.
Lush and beautiful Zona Reina.
