Day Three: Speechless

22 01 2014

Today has been a long day, but a very rewarding one.  Again, the medical team worked at the clinic testing for high blood pressure and diabetes.  The rest of us heading down the street to the local school and taught the children about the hazards of smoking.  It was quiet an interesting experience express ourselves to children who could barley us.

I titled this small update speechless for one main reason.  This afternoon we got to spend some time with many different people from the surrounding community.  We got to just celebrate with each other despite the differences of language and culture.  There was such great unity within the room and the joy was overflowing and so evident!  It was a joy to take part in, connecting barriers and communities.
