House Calls

This week we have a visiting doctor, Minjin. Today she and I walked in the community of Armenia Bonito making house calls. It's a whole different world - walking down the street and "seeing" a patient on a gravel or dirt road in the middle of the community. Not the normal run-of-the-mill kind of visit that you would make in the States. We continued on to many houses in the village and talked with people in their homes. It's such a great way to get to know people on a more personal level. We prayed with most, and were able to take care of many people who needed to be seen. Minjin used the Spanish she knew, and I was able to translate the part she didn't. We were a good team.
