During orientation we express to people the importance of the "F" word - flexibility!  Things may change, hurricanes may come, and we need to be ready to change with it.  Hurricane Ernesto came flying by and basically left us with a lot of rain - it was far enough off shore that we really weren't hit by any winds.  Because of this, however, it changed construction plans, and had people from the village staying at home - we still were able to treat a number of patients at the dental clinic.  The first two days we have been in the village of La Fe, for the next two days we will be in the community of Armenia Bonito.  Armenia hosts our huge project, which will provide plenty of rain coverage, so hopefully this will bring people in.

Both teams, Faith Presbyterian Church of Ballentine, SC and Rincon Mountain Presbyterian Church from Tucson, AZ have been troopers!  They've been involved in English Class, Kids Club, Dental Clinic, Sewing with the girls at Puerta de Esperanza, construction, and all around loving on kids!  It's been great to see and can't wait to see what the rest of the week brings for us.
