Final push

It’s hard to believe, but we’re about to set off for our forth and final day of work at our clinic in Trinidad. We’re exhausted, I know, but I find the work we do equally energizing and inspiring.1285865-1640755-thumbnail.jpg

Last evening, Deacon Paul read to us the story of Jesus feeding the multitudes – while at first there seemed like there was not enough food, suddenly there was ample food, and then so much that there were leftovers. When we were packing for this trip, we kept asking ourselves if we had enough medications and supplies. 1285865-1640760-thumbnail.jpg

And then when our boxes got held up in customs, we had to purchase some things in order to keep us going. Then our shipments all arrived – a good thing, as we have already consumed much of them. But there will be leftovers. We’ve already arranged with the Rector of the church in Trinidad, Padre Hector, to take some of them to a local Episcopal clinic – and I’m sure he’ll gladly take the rest.1285865-1640758-thumbnail.jpg
