What's been happening?

Hmmm, let's see...I'm not keeping up with what's been happening here.  Have I really been so busy??  YES!!  What have we been doing lately???  Well, now, let's see... 

We're not the only ones who have been busy either!  These folks always inspire me!

Ramon has been extremely busy--some days I'm lucky to see him!  One day when I mentioned this, he said, "By the way, who are you?"  :)  Besides the usual patient load, which can be heavy, and 24/7, there have been visiting medical teams here doing various surgeries and clinics. 

Centura Global Health Initiatives Gynocology Team was here (again!!--THANKS!!) for a week doing mainly prolapse surgeries.  Here they are arriving.

They also brought a team who did clinic work in a mountain village (here they are getting ready to head out)

and another team came to the school to hold a Vacation Bible School at our school.

 (Sorry it's a little blurry, but they are sooo cute, aren't they?!)

The kids had a blast and all were blessed!

Next, a cleft lip palate team from ADRA Japan came and did an excellent and much needed job.  ADRA Nepal, along with some hospital workers, goes into the mountain villages and finds patients (for all the teams) who have not be able to have specialty medical care.  It's so heartwarming to see the happy results!

They brought toys for their patients!  Thank you Team, and see you next time!

As soon as they left, Holland's Women for Women Gynecology Team came and are still here.  Ramon is enjoying working with these dedicated teams.  He tells them, "You could have gone to Aruba for your vacation, but you came here instead.  Thank you."

YES, THANK YOU!  More are coming, and I'll keep you updated.  Will try (TRY!) to get back to my weekly schedule, so come back next week to see what other happenings happened!  :)  (Probably next post will be about my mom's visit!)  Have a nice day!
