Sunday in the Dominican

We are resting after church - The service here last 2 hours - which is surprisingly OK. Tonight we go to a church plant in the Haitian community were we had a clinic on Friday. We have seen about 60 patient's so far. Many have diabetes and hypertension, and many just want a pill of any type. We have seen a few people who are very obviously ill and need labs and further evaluation at a hospital - which they won't be able to afford to get. The people here are so friendly and nice and we remember many of them from last year.
The bright spot on the trip so far would have to be the beginning of the first flight. When the pilot announces, we are having a little engine trouble and we are going to have to pull back to the gate and try a manual start - nothing inspires confidence in a plane like knowing that there is engine trouble. Nevertheless, we arrived at our destination alive. I will post photos when we are home - I can't download from here.
