Outreach to the Mountains

Emmaus and I as we climb the 500 steps to Bugnay

Health Teaching in the village of Buscalan

We just arrived home from five days in the mountains. A team of 10 of us travelled to the villages of Bugnay and Buscalan to do health teachings and prenatal care. We had a wonderful reception in both villages. I was particularly happy that we had so many women attend our seminar in Buscalan as this was our first trip to this village for outreach. I was also so proud of Emmaus who hiked almost the whole way there! We also had the McCauley family join us. Melissa, Ben and little Samuel were a great asset to our team! We will hike into the other three Butbut villages in May. These villages are more remote so we wont be bringing the kids with us!

The team on the way back from Buscalan. L to R (Gracia, Belen, Ben, Rosela, Melissa and Samuel, Marivic, Salome, Crystal, Georgia and Lucas, Ella- missing from picture is Achao because he was taking the pic and Emmaus because he was asleep after a long day of hiking!)

Wow,
Loving it!!! Would you host a team of 20ish form our Church? Yes, I am still coming. Emma was bugging me yesterday as she has a piggy bank full of money for her trip.
Love the site.
