I helped fulfill my first dream!!! Now I feel like I am officially a "Special Agent".
Last weekend the team (Dream agents: Desiree and Juan, Rick and Lisa and their boys Jackson and Alex, also accompanied by friend and nurse Karen) got together and headed out to bring a fridge, and stove top to Jackline's family - this will be their first time owning a fridge.
The past two days we have seen approximately sixty patients per day in our medical clinics. Many people suffer from respiratory aliments because they cook over an open fire in the same room that they live in. They use green wood and the smoke makes them prone to bronchitis and asthma.

We arrived in our apartment at about 6:00 AM - had coffee and oatmeal with Jengish and Sergey. By 9:00 we were hard at it delivering rice around Tokmok with Ruby. We met with the director of the baby orphanage who we will take shopping for supplies before we leave.

Hope the weather isn't getting too cold up there. It's still high 20's here at night. ;)
So this past weekend was Thanksgiving (in Canada), and being that we ARE Canadian, we put together a lovely thanksgiving feast with some of our Canadian friends here. It was so nice to have some traditional "comfort" food and remember how blessed we are being able to work here in Mexico.
