Day 8 and we only worked 8:00 a.m. to 9:15 p.m.
Would you believe if I said we are a tired bunch of missionaries? Today we treated 36 patients. Many had multiple extractions – an 11 year old had 4 teeth out, another 9 year old had 3 extractions with several fillings added in. These children were calm and pleasant during their long ordeals. This will be a very short entry as we are all ready to unwind and go to sleep. Tomorrow we will close up the clinic at 2:00 p.m. so we can clean up, inventory our expendable supplies, and start the packing process. At 4:00 p.m. we will all participate in the Tejeras feeding and then bring the storage footlockers back to “the ranch” for storage. A late dinner at 8:00 p.m. is planned.
As tired that we are, each of us has been uplifted with bringing beautiful smiles to so many of God’s children in Quimistan.
