Visiting K Village...

On our third day in Liberia, we were up before the sun, ate breakfast and headed out of town on a 5 hour drive to Pastor Peter's village.  This is a very remote village about 4 hours out, then we 'four wheel' in a few miles, then walk the rest of the way.  We had planned this for a medical outreach day, knowing from our last visit that we weren't prepared for all the illness we encountered.  So we did bring supplies to treat what we could.  Tracey, a Nurse Practitioner, Josephus and Denise both nurses, were able to diagnose and treat more than 60 adults and children!   They ROCKED!!!  Some of the things diagnosed were...Intestinal Worms, Malaria, ear infections and Bronchitis.  This team of 3 were amazing!!  Thank You Tracey, Josephus and Denise!!
We also brought 50 Cabbage Patch Dolls that were donated to us!  The whole village was very intrigued by these dolls.  They loved the fact that they could 'plat' some of the dolls hair!  We also brought a ton of little cars, a variety of other little toys and suckers, which are always a hit!  This village is filled with the most loving people!
After such a long day, we encountered a flat tire, which was promptly fixed!  Then headed back for the LONG drive back to town. 
Thanks Jim for the wonderful pics!
