We All Work Together

When we woke up on Thursday, we were actually able to see the Visitor’s Center and some of the beautiful views around it. So we took a few pictures before heading back down the mountain to the school in Puertas Azules.

The Visitor's Center
On our way down the mountain we were stopped by a tree down. It was a pretty big tree all the way across the road. We weren’t too surprised. With all that wind, I feel like trees probably fall down all the time. All the guys immediately got out of their trucks to take care of the situation. Using their combined strength they were able to push the tree off the roadway! 

Everyone had to work together. There was a lot of teamwork that went on during this trip!
Now we can pass!
We arrived back at the school to find a line of people already waiting on us. It was another busy day with our patients plus a few patients from the clinic next door. We actually saw more patients than the day before but filled about the same number of prescriptions. We worked straight through from 8:30 to 3 so that we could head back down the mountain before dark.

Jason spent his day with the kids. They were coloring and playing with side walk chalk. He also had a few more t-shirts to give away!

New Shirts!
Coloring pages!

Dayna wore her matching t-shirt!

On our drive back to Jinotega we were able to see more of the country side. Jason was riding in the bed of one of the trucks so he was able to make some really good pictures.

We passed these men loading up wood on their cart pulled by oxen.

When we arrived back in Jinotega all of us were very excited for a hot meal from Martha and a shower!

Romans 12:4-6 (NLT)
"Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ's body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well."
