Last few days filled with cement, smiles, sutures and sunshine!

Saturday was the team's last day in the village. We worked half a day and then visited some Mayan ruins called Tak-alik Ab'aj. Once again there were many patients who wanted to be seen and some that had to be turned away because there wasn't any space. Luckily there is another team coming down in two weeks.

The children's program concluded yesterday with a FIESTA for the kids. Complete with a clown show and hotdogs. Each kid went home with a bag filled with clothes, shoes, toys, toothbrush and toothpaste. The kids go CrAzY for those bags! Just ask the ladies trying to hand them out yesterday in an orderly fashion.

The construction crew continued work on the house for Blanca Estela's family. Although from what I've heard I don't know who did more work this week - the team members or the local children. But I am sure that all had a great time.

Today we are off to visit the city of Antigua Guatemala. We hope to be attending a church service there and then eat lunch and have some time to explore the city. Then we are on our way to Guatemala City where the team will stay overnight in a hotel before getting up bright and early to fly back home.

This has truly been a wonderful team. They are so easy to work with and each and every one has a servant's heart. I hope to see some of them back here real soon.
