Our last two days are coming to a close. The surgery team is completing their last cases and the village team is closing up to head back home. The dental clinic is finishing their patients, and the construction team is doing some side projects since they finished their house early.
This morning was very special, as we saw the house and were able to sing, and pray with and for the family and turn over the official keys to the home.
All six vans traveled to the home after breakfast
and then after spending time touring and talking, we sang some songs and Pastor Riggs lead us in his last devotional at the house. He talked of someone leaving marks on the street poles to show the way back there for us, and how this house would be a home that shows the way with the mark of Christ and his love.
The chapel at the hospital is a late adopted project. Some of our team heard that another group just needed $1,500 US and the funds were brought down so we could be a small part of the future building of a place of prayer and focus on God at the Corozal Hospital. Some of the construction guys helped dig through rock and hard dirt. The site was moved twice in two days due to underground lines. (Dig before you call)
The village team went to Santa Marta today, a long drive.
The surgery team had a fantastic week with so many patients, all of whom were so grateful.
Our new missioners are anxious to be included next year. Tomorrow we take in some culture with the Mayan Ruins, Cave Tubing and fishing and diving in San Pedro.
We also met a young friend in the village who is leaving February 10th to have surgery on his cleft pallat the could not be performed in Belize because he is alergic to anesthesia. The team prayed for him and his brave mother Alexandra.
