Last night was great! I was invited to a missionary family’s home for dinner…which was Mexican…my favorite! I loved spending time with them and talking about missions. I also enjoyed loving on their little girl and playing games with their son.

 

My good friends Chelsea and David left today to travel back to the US. I relied on her medical knowledge and on David’s calmness in any situation. They are a neat, Godly couple, one that I am so thankful to have known and hope to continue the friendship in the US. This means that there are three medical students here…which is a little scary, but rounds and clinic today were good. I felt very supported and given advice when I was unsure what to do.

 

In all these experiences here, I can say only one thing for sure…my God is greater. He is the sustainer of me when I see the umpteenth patient that day…the one who gives me patience when the glucose strips run out or a medicine is not given…and the one who gives me energy when I am running on empty. I am so thankful to be able to call on Him. I pray that you too have a close relationship with God…and if not, that you have the courage to ask someone (or me) about a relationship with Christ.
