Spring Break Visitors

You've probably noticed the sound of crickets in the night eminating from our blog the last two weeks. Well, we are back. We just finished up two visiting teams of college students from Pepperdine University and Abilene Christian University. They were two great groups of young people (boy do we feel old!). We worshiped with local congregations, ate local fare and hit the back roads on our mobile clinic route. They got to try their hands at vital signs, pharmacy, patient interviewing and even pulled a few teeth, not to mention the children's activities. It was a busy couple of weeks, but we always enjoy meeting fresh new faces and sharing our ministry with them. I especially like listening to new music--and this age group always has an assortment of playlists to share. I even got to listen to Japanese rap last week. Very interesting.....

For more play-by-play action, see Sheri's blog . She has some good coverage of the days' events.
Here are some action shots that we got.
