Greetings from San Lucas Toliman (SLT),
This years edition of the Woodlands' Medical Mission Team to SLT is off to a good start. Day #1 was a little light in numbers, but a steady flow allowed this team to get things sorted out and "hitting on all 8". Many of our team memeber have never worked together before and we, of course, welcomed the medical students (9 of them) from Guatemala to the team. Our first day did coincide with a huge celebration (parades, carnival, no work and schools closed, etc.) and so that may have affected the turn out. UPDATE: mid morning and still very light crowds.
Each team has been great (Optical, Ortho, General,, Women's, and Pediatrics in the medical area; Family Photo Clinic; the Pharmacy team;logistics; and the Spiritual Clinic) and we are looking forward to this day. All 35 of us gathered last evening and are all having a great time getting to know each other. The team did the first day "dance" very well.
Special kudos to the Optical Team. They did see the most people yesterday.
Dr. Joe has the medical staff very well organized and our corp of RN's are keeping things running smoothly.
We covet your prayers and are all dong well.
