Nick update from Peru

We received a few pictures from Nick and I think you will be able to see by the looks of things, that well, he's loving it and not exactly roughing it...yet!

Chicken soft tacos with homemade guacamole, refried beans, stewed tomatoes and onions. Note the strawberry shortcake dessert!

Nick with Karol, the chef and Nelly the housemom/housekeeper
He is staying in a Volunteer House, working about 6 hours a day in triage, where he takes vital signs and gathers critical information as patients arrive. He takes Spanish classes in the afternoon. Did drink tap water right off the bat without thinking, and suffered the consequences for a few days!

Luis, a wartime doctor who has served 10 years in Iraq and Afghanistan. Nick is watching one of the best!
He will be heading into the jungle on Thursday for jungle conservation and forestation work, so no communication for a couple of weeks...that will have his mama worried for sure! After that, the dental clinic should be open and he will begin a whole new experience. He is loving the country, the people and the experience thus far. Please continue to keep him in your prayers! We miss him for sure, but are so grateful for the opportunities he is being given.

  1. Yep, we miss him so much, but it really does sound like he is having a great time, learning so much, and using his Spanish!!!
