Two weeks ago, Dr. Martin, Mrs. Wendy, Rachel, Brandi and I took a short trip to Tegucicalpa (the capital of Honduras) to get some paperwork and fingerprints done for completing my residency. For those who haven't heard yet, I have applied for a three year residency so that I don't have to leave the country every 90 days. It's tough having to get a plane ticket, travel and come back every three months, especially when there are only two nurses. I think Brandi will appreciate not having to work in clinic alone :) Thankfully, with the help of a local missionary in Teguc, I was able to get into immigration and out rather quickly. It's so cool to see God send the right people into your life at the right time. Now that I have finished my fingerprinting, I will be receiving my residency card within a month. Sometimes, I find myself looking at life and I still can't believe that God has allowed me to be here serving. I couldn't think of anything else I'd rather do, than follow after God's heart.
Here are a few pics from our trip.

7. Look who found McDonald's!!
8. You can't see it very well, but there are houses on top of houses! I would say it's a bit crowded.
Just because it's down season, doesn't mean that we aren't busy little bees. We are continuing to do school visits on Fridays to reach our goal of vising each school twice per year. I love these kids! They are precious, yet sometimes a mess, but we love them all the same. Brandi and I are also in the middle of inventory. Each year we take time to count each medication, by the pill, so that we know how much medicine we need to request teams to bring for the upcoming year. We have just finish the pharmacy and have worked our way into the lab. Gotta love inventory!
Well that's about all I have for now. Blessing to you all!
