I don't even know how to express how amazing, life changing, humbling, and touching today was. In case I haven't already told you, medical day was the thing I worried about the most. I really wasn't sure that I could do it just because I'm so weak sauce when it comes to medical anything plus smells. But today, that was not the case. We were in the smallest, poorest colony today so there were only about 6 people with leprosy that came to the clinic. I really can't describe the experience from there other than something overcame me and I was able to rise to the occasion. I'm going to let the pictures do the rest of the talking... (So FYI, it's a mobile medical clinic, with nurses and a doctor and is quite the amazing organized process, as they come they have their blood pressure and glucose levels taken and then... cue pictures)

and lotioning. Lotioning and oiling. Sandlot anyone?
