Yesterday nurse Gerri arrived with her two children. Miguel and I went to pick them up from the airport then we traveled back to San Antonio. After a delicious dinner at the hotel they headed to bed tired after a long day of travel.
Today was their first day of work in the village. Once again I sent a pickup truck to the village called Barrios 1 to bring in patients. Gerri worked hard all day long seeing some very sick adults and children. This new area we are working in has a higher rate of malnutrition in the children. We hope to start a special program soon for the malnourished kids.
Connor and Kira worked all day long on a long-overdue painting of the inside of the clinic. I knew it was time for a new coat when I found some little kiddos with crayon bits coloring on the walls.
