A walk through day 3… After experiencing several ‘firsts’ yesterday, and then being able to spend the evening getting to meet the community health workers, we were eager to head out and meet the people of Bullet Tree Falls. We joined Ms. Gema and Mrs. Evette Waight, the community health worker for Bullet Tree, as they introduced us to several families in the community. We were honored to be invited into their homes, enjoy much laughter on their front porches, share in relief from the shade, and experience several encounters with a variety of puppies, chickens, ducks, dogs, and a turkey. While our tasks were simple (health screenings, Zika prevention, and teaching about planting containers), our blessings were many as we were invited into the family spaces to share life with the people of Bullet Tree.
We ended our day at an intercession prayer service at Oasis of Blessing Church with our friend and brother Pastor Kevin Tzib. There is no better way to end a day than in prayer with fellow believers.
