There have been an incredible amount of issues and problems we have had to deal with, even before we left Canada. First we found out that our team from Guatemala, a group that comes with us each and every mission, would not be coming this time. They needed to stay in Guatemala to help with another team from the US. We also discovered that a man, Efrain, who does a ton of leg work for us before hand, such as purchasing all the medications we hand out, was fired from his position and wouldn't be here, either. That also meant, no drugs. We found all this out last Sunday, a week ago. YIKES!
Then, when we arrived at the airport, we found out that 3 of our medics had either an injury or family crisis and wouldn't be coming with us either. Another YIKES! We also discovered this morning that our 1000s of patients sheets were photocopied incorrectly and that some of the meds were just too expensive or not available.
(Just as an aside, being a Christian, I, and other members of our team who are also believers, firmly feel that Satan is trying to side line us. He's fighting hard to keep us from doing the work God has placed us here to do. Please pray for our spiritual protection!)
The chewable vitamins, to be divided into bags of 30.
The big bottle in the front of this table is the Mebendazole, divided into different numbers for families.
Boxes of meds, ready for our distributing boxes.
Boxes used to sort items for different days.
The piles are big, which is great.
