An Adventure to Huaynamota!
On June 22, we left for the village of Huaynamota, Nayarit, Mexico.  What an amazing trip!  We got to Huaynamota late Wednesday night, and on Thursday morning, we set up our clinic in the village plaza. Our team consisted of 33 volunteers: 2 dentists, 2 physicians assistants, 1 nurse, 1 pharmacy technician, 1 occupational therapist, 1 medical student, 7 general volunteers, 2 pilots, 2 cooks, and 14 people from the Bible School in Vicente Guerrero that were on the prayer and outreach team. The medical clinic treated 110 patients and the dental clinic treated 80 patients.
The River!!
The boat ride to Huaynamota typically takes 1 hour; but for this trip, it turned into a 5-hour adventure.  The river was much lower this time, and the boat, with our gear, had to be dragged through the mud to continue.  Many times, we had to get out of the boat and walk along the riverbank in the dark, keeping pace with the boats as continued upriver.  Around midnight, we eventually arrived at the drop-off point for Huaynamota, where the trucks picked us up, and drove us up the dirt road to the village. 

We were expecting rain before we even got in the boats, so all our gear was securely wrapped in plastic.  The whole way up the river, we had a lightening show behind us, with stars in front of us.  The rain never caught up with us, which was an answer to prayer.  The unexpected travel unified us in our determination and mission to serve the Huichol people.

Carlos and His Team from the Bible School
Carlos, our amazing friend from the Bible School in San Quintin, brought 13 others with him, including his wife and two kids! They were a passionate group of servants that distributed shoes to the kids (after washing their feet), prayed with anyone who requested prayer, and provided a great kids program complete with puppet shows, crafts, and games. We look forward to partnering with Carlos and his team in the future!!
Brennan, the Eagle Scout
Brennan is our youngest volunteer at 15 years of age.  He received a $5,000 grant to write a dental hygiene book for kids in Spanish and publish the book.  He presented the book to the kids in the village.  Our two dentists, Dr. Nancy and Dr. David, came alongside Brennan as he taught the kids how to brush their teeth.  
Family Volunteers on This Trip
We had many family members on this trip:  Mauricio and his daughter Samantha; Mike and his son Alex; and three husband/wife teams, Xochitl and Fernando (both are Physicians Assistants), Sandy and Arnold (General Volunteers), and Kimberly and Anthony (our cooks).  
Angelina and Angela
Our special mother/daughter team from Mexico!  These two are a part of all our clinics in Mexico.  They help organize the supplies for each clinic, recruit Mexican partners such as Dr. Nancy and Carlos from the Bible School, and help organize and run the clinics.  We are so grateful they are part of the Mission Flight Team.
