Fresh Starts

The New Year has brought us lots of patients in clinics as well as some changes to our work.  We are working on reorganizing some of our clinic routes to include some more weekly central clinics in the area.  Already we have two very interested communities that are centrally located on major routes into town, so this should be good for access.  Also we have had good starts to our regularly scheduled clinics and people have been happy to see us back--always a good thing!

On a somewhat sad note, we have had to temporarily say goodbye to Sheri as she goes back to the States to help with family responsibilities.  We are all hopeful that it will just be for a few months.  In the meantime we have put a lot of our education on hold and are focused on clinical care.  We miss you Sheri!

We had such a good time back home, enjoying the company of family and just relaxing, but it's been good to be back home and back to being productive again!  We have been busy already with church and youth events, and this Saturday we will get to witness 6 baptisms out in Mactzul V.  Be praying for our team as we work to lead people to Jesus and be examples of his compassion.

I'll end on a funny note:  we have a young neighbor named Elvis about 13 years old.  I always give him a hard time because he claims to have no idea who Elvis Presley is.  So this year I found an Elvis greatest hits CD at Big Lots for $5!  I got to give to him on Elvis Presley's birthday even--I hope he likes it!
