Good Friday at the regional hospital

A few of us from El Puente joined the tour agency SAS Travel in a special lunch in the grounds of the regional hospital where we shared the Easter message and sang some songs. The relatives of patients who live in the campo (countryside) far away from Cusco received a delicious nutritious meal. It was a privilege to be involved in these celebrations.

And the work begins........






 





Today was a very exciting day. Scott and a team of volunteers from the States had a smashing time as the work on the new church building commenced. Today they knocked down some of the walls.

We plan to completely destroy the existing adobe house before we begin the construction.
We are so grateful to our amazing provider God for all that he is doing at El Puente Iglesia.

Choclito

We have enjoyed harvesting the corn we grew in our garden. Maize is one of the staple foods here in the mountains and right now it is readily available in the shops, markets and in the streets! Our Columbian friend also taught us how to make tamales and you can see Sam grinding the corn in one of the photos.

The Eye Clinic is now open!


Over the last 4 years since Anjanette has been working at the La Fuente Clinic in Cusco she has seen some huge changes. When she first started there the only services on offer were family medicine and paediatrics. Over the last few years we have added dentistry psychology physiotherapy and recently we have opened a commercial pharmacy.

This weekend we celebrated the inauguration of the Eye Clinic. Luz de Vida is an eye clinic built next to the La Fuente clinic run by our good friend and opthalmologist  Nathan. What a wonderful service to now offer to patients, the staff at the eye clinic explain to the patients  how God can restore sight from spiritual as well as physical blindness and we are so delighted to celebrate the latest addition to the services we can now offer our patients.

Please join us in thanking God for this amazing new clinic and the dedicated staff who work there .
