Warm Showers

posted in: Uncategorized 0
Some of you know that there is no hot water here at the ranch.  Not that we lack for creature comforts in this lovely area where we stay.  But our ever prepared BSA leader Larry had ideas on how to give us limited relief in this area.

The other night we had the local Peace Corps Volunteer, a young lady named Margaux, visit with us.  She told us about her work here in education about nutrition, basic health habits, and HIV prevention.  She has worked here for almost a year, and at the end of the evening she talked a bit about her isolation and cultural adaptation.  We asked her about when was the last time she had had a warm shower.  Her answer was that she had not had one during her entire stay, and most likely would not have one until she returned to the States.  Our little Becky, with the big heart, gave Margaux her water heating device as Margaux was leaving.

Our hope is that she has enjoyed the comfort of a warm shower.
