"I had the pleasure of treating patients in the Patchakan Presbytereian Medical Clinic this past December, shortly before Christmas. This was definitely one of the most relaxed and enjoyable clinics I have been called to associate with. This area consists of mostly hard working local folks, as well as people from other parts of the country who came to this clinic because of the clinic's good reputation of caring for it's people in a way that only God could have provided. We had really wonderful folks to render medical care to, and people who appreciated the care they received.
The staff at the clinic were well trained, and so very helpful. My Spanish was very limited, so translation was a necessity.
I truly think the highlight was visiting people in their homes, i.e., house calls. We met some of the world's most loving and appreciative people by showing the love of Jesus as He would have shown by going to those who were not physically able to come to Him.
I really cannot say there were any negative experiences, except that I was not able to stay another week or more.
I truly loved the stay there, and hope to be allowed to serve there again someday."
