Day 4 - 2nd Clinic Day

Today was our 2nd clinic just outside of La Romana in a Haitian batey called Guajabo. The kids were all waiting for us as we stepped off the bus. 

We were reminded in our team huddle by Amy Gerstner of the story of The Fish by the Pike Place Fish Market. One of the things that makes them so successful is that they take time to have fun. So we were reminded to take some time to play with the kids. 

So we had fun jumping rope, playing ball and helping teach the kids to brush their teeth. 
We also took the opportunity to listen to an Esperanza Associate tell us about her business!

We had a great time and so did the kids! Andrew from Esperanza dressed in up in a tooth costume to help the kids learn about dental hygiene.

We now have 5 Dominican dental students that are with us. They were chosen to come because they are the best students at the school. It s so nice to have more help and they fit right in with the group. We presented them with backpacks in our morning huddle. 

We are having a great time and seeing personalities come out more and more. We have an amazing team of hard workers. We miss our family and friends at home, but are so appreciative of the time we have to serve these people. Our thoughts are with family and friends in the states with the election tomorrow, though I think Ispeak for most of us when I say how nice it has been to not have to hear about politics in the last few days. We hope everyone gets out and votes and will be anxiously awaiting the results tomorrow night. We will have commentary from that later on in the week. Buenas noches!

Enjoy these pictures of some of our group...and of course a few of the children of the Dominican.
