River Valley Medical

River Valley Church sent us our first team from Minnesota this May! They were full of excitement, asking to how to serve and help in any way possible. With this attitude, they tackled the week with such energy, we hit some amazing goals on brigade. Our first day, in Rio Viejo, was a day of torrential jungle rains, which kept many patients from coming (21 medical patients, 7 dental patients). But sun shone from then on: Toncontin (100 medical, 11 dental), El Pital (84 medical, 11 dental), and Los Limpios (136 medical, 12 dental). All in all, we saw 341 medical patients and 41 dental patients. Their service showed a wonderful balance of being professional yet so passionate!
