A little American-style continental breakfast. I am still feeling weak, but more rested thanks to a good night sleep. Tricia gave the devotional during the morning team time, and Dr. Jo gave her testimony.
|Mmmm - memories of Vermont|

At lunch our group was introduced to another gringo in the town, Colin, working with the Peace Corps in the village. His friends Valarie and Bryan were visiting from Rochester, NY, and we had fun sharing stories with them. Chuck S. from California showed me a gecko that was near a bullitin board in the church, and we attempted to "show" it to Lena - check out this great photo I was able to catch as the gecko scurried away ...

The town gathered yet again as we left in the buses, and Sam received a special present from Miguel, who gave his life to Christ after we prayed for him (and Eric pursued him and a stolen hammer!). He was dressed in surgical atttire and climbed the bus as we departed, then ushered the kids away so they did not get hurt. It is so great to wave to the town as they wave back at us at the end of another busy day. Anna was completing her daily task of counting patient slips on the bus ride back to Santo Tomas, and Sapna and I helped her to keep the papers organized in piles of those who became believers, rededicated their lives to Christ, or did not accept God's gift of eternal life.
