Clinic

Saying a temporary goodbye to Eduardo


Yesterday we had our weekly health clinic. I love the opportunity it gives us to meet new people. We have also been so blessed to have some youth from the village help us out each week. They enjoy working with us, and it gives us a chance to spend one-on-one time with them. We are saying goodbye to Eduardo, a good friend who will be traveling to the island of Roatan to be with his mother for 2 1/2 months. In this time of economic struggles, especially when you live in a third world country - it splits families up. They have been without their mother in their home for almost 6 months. This is "normal" for the people in this community - people go where there is work, and the kids fend for themselves. We will miss Eduardo and his sister Johanna, but we are happy that they will get some quality time with their mother.

Some boys just "hanging out" with us :-)

HI Erin!
I met Mike at the Vision Retreat this past weekend, which led me to your blog. I have so enjoyed perusing your blog as I pray about what the Lord may have for me in the coming years. I am so encouraged by your work down there!

I have talked with Mike about possibly coming down for a "vision trip". If that happens, I will so enjoy meeting you and the McCanns and walking alongside you in your ministry for a few days! Anyway, just wanted to say hello!

Grace and peace,
Kate deFuniak
