On Tuesday we were back in Santa Emilia for our second day of clinic.
After we got to the church and got set up we realized we had left the medications for the day back at the house an hour away. All that made it with us was what we didn't use on Monday!
Eliud and Troy immediately headed back to Jinotega to get the rest of the medicine. Chrissy and I were worried about running of medication. We went ahead and started seeing patients. Then if we didn't have the medications they needed we gave them a numbered ticket and asked them to either wait for them or to come back later. Most of the patients waited for the medication to come, and a few left and came back. There was not a single person who didn't come back which was great!
Because of the extra time we had while waiting on Eliud and Troy to get back, those at intake were able to spend some time specifically with the kids. They sang songs and danced around! We heard the hokey pokey and a song with the colors in English and Spanish. We also heard a lot of laughter! Everyone was having so much fun! Precious time that wouldn't have been spent if we had loaded all the medication that morning!
God always has a plan!

"You can make many plans, but the Lord's purpose will prevail."
