Today the Gordon college team arrived. They unpacked all the supplies they had brought down in PID suitcases. Those who've come before were shocked to see all the work that had been done on the PID compound since last year! The new eating area is done, Paul will be screening it in and putting screen doors on it, and the team will be painting it. The team will also be going to work in Canaan, starting by filling in the foundation for the 4th duplex. I am looking forward to a great week with the team.

This week there is a new team, some of who arrived on Friday and others who arrived on Sunday. Alison and Barbara, a midwife, are teaching a midwife class to a group of 21 students, mostly from Blanchard. The nurses, Andrew and Nicole, worked in the clinic with Claudia in the emergency room, triage, and seeing patients. We look forward to a fun and productive week together.

Yesterday the dental team packed up and spent the day at Lake Atitlan. They were a great group of people who are reallly passionate, caring and did a lot of hard work this week. They left the clinic at least an hour after the Maine team everyday. So many patients to be seen and they really didn't want to turn anyone away. I really hope to see some of them again here in Guatemala.
On Saturday we headed to the construction site and the school in Saquiy for a VBS party. The kids watched a movie, had some cake and broke some piñatas. It was a little crazy, but a lot if fun.
Today we are heading to Antigua for some sightseeing.

Last night the team went to a small movie theater up the street for movie night. They watched a popular Haitian movie with English subtitles. This evening, Mme Pavelus came to our meeting to give her version of the history of Haiti.
Today Guetchine and I went to two different public health offices, trying to get the vaccinations that they are requiring us to get. They continue to give us the run-around.
