Clinic in Chutzerob went smoothly today. We met some new Christians as well, which is always a plus. We also saw a little boy (Moises Abraam--pretty hefty name to live up to!) who came in last month with a severe cellulitis in his foot who looked 100% better today. He and his parents were very pleased and thankful for Sheri's good care.

We are in the process of getting our health promoter Juan up to speed (no pun intended) on his driving skills. He has had his license for a while but not too much experience. So today I let him drive back, which included a tight driveway turn-around and a steep hill up to the main road. He did it with only a few stall-outs. Once on the road he did great and I let him keep going on the highway. It was a little scary at first as he sped down the hill toward the hairpin turns, but I quickly advised him to put it into second gear to control his speed better. We made it home without a scratch. He told me it was only his second time to drive on the pavement......Now I know how my parents felt teaching me to drive!

Kemmel made a quick trip to Antigua to drop off Glenn and Neva and then to the capital to pick up clinic supplies and meds. He even went grocery shopping for me and brought us home a pizza for dinner. What a guy! Still no canned pumpkin hitting the shelves. I guess we will have to try some of the local pumpkins for our holiday baking. Should be interesting--we have yellow as well as green-fleshed varieties.

Visions of a green pumpkin pie just danced through my head . . . not very appetizing I must say!

I have been catching up on your blog - you guys have been very busy - I always like to read about your work, but I have been busy, too, and hadn't read it in several days. The sunset picture was beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
Love, Mama
