The Christ the King mission serves those who cannot afford medical care. All sorts of surgery from routine to absolutely life-saving stuff is offered under sometimes difficult circumstances. This week,for example, the x-Ray machine is not working. All of this makes me appreciate the kind of medical care I have received in the US over the past few years.

I then moved on to la Colonia and the blessing of a renovated church, superbly done by the construction team members. It was a truly joyful celebration.
beautifully Wednesday is a half day for work so we enjoyed a nice fish or chicken dinner at a seaside recreation area. The ocean and a pool were available to us.
Finally we celebrated Mass at an orphange run by Franciscan Sisters. It is a place that is wonderfully run by a loving staff of sisters and lay people ans well as several terrific volunteers from the states many of whom give two years of service.
It was a great day and we're looking forward to tomorrow.
