October Clinic

Well today was the first Saturday of the month....that means clinic day!! We never know what will happen or how many will show. Today we had almost 40 patients, which makes for a nice paced morning. After last Saturday of being crazy busy and short handed it was a blessing today. Today Susanna, our nurse, was able to come back, we had our doctor, Lisseth, and our dentist, Alcira, and we also had a friend of ours tag a long that lives in Diriamba, Esther. Esther and her family have lived in Nicaragua for 2 years now and she was gracious enough to come and help out. We had a wonderful time of seeing our faithful patients and some new ones. Next month will be 2 years of doing the clinics in this community and we feel so blessed.

I will drop a small prayer request on this blog. We are in need of portable dental equipment in order to do fillings. We are currently only able to do extractions and would love to provide taking care of cavities to help prevent further teeth problems. We have looked and found things in the States at, to us, a high price and we would need to find a way to get it down here. Because of that we are hoping to find something here. We aren't for sure, but are trusting that God will always give us the answer when we need it. Please pray with us that those doors open and we are able to find a good machine at a good price.

I will leave you with a quote that I will continually strive to say "yes" to:

"The world has yet to see what God can do with and through and in a man who is fully consecrated to Him." -H. Varley
