In the garden
Are you hungry?
Children are always adorable
The Botanical Garden
At the airport
A village -- batey
On the bus to another clinic
A house in one of the Batey's
Medicines were purchased in quantity and poured into small bottles
Much work was done in preparing the medicines
Work, work, work!
The more hands, the faster the preparations took
The first thing when we arrive at a clinic is unload the bus!
The people waited, sometimes a long time in the hot sun.
Inside a clinic
Clinics were crowded
The pharmacy was always busy
The pharmacy made good use of those who chould speak Spanish
Explaining the medications was most important
The pharmacy people did not have a moment's rest
The people were greatful
Song Service at an evening evangelistic meeting
Leandro talked and sang
Jennifer translated for Wendy
The members had been meeting in a rented "church"
Our group at the rented "church"
The site of the future church
Inspecting the site
It did not take long for the church wall to go up
The church construction is well underway
The church building
The cement blocks became heaver and heavier
The walls of the new church
Transportation -- the BUS!!!
The bus was our home away from home
It was a faithful beast
VBS fun
Sometimes VBS was quiet!
She was interested in everything going on
VBS children
VBS chaos -- now is time to escape the noise!
Beach and ocean!
The first Cathedral in the New World
Waiting at the airport
