Let the Children come to Me
To “be keyed up” is a phrase that mean to be nervous, tense or excited.
Many of the residents of La Libertad, Ceguaca came to the FOB Clinic “all keyed up”. The adults have their own health concerns, yet they are even more worried about their children. Their resources are limited yet they take the time and make the effort to come to the clinic often walking quite a distance.
Many clients are nervous approaching the dental clinic, but Joi and Isaiah helped ease their fears. They also helped keep the instruments clean and organized for Drs Claire & Adan.
Robin cared for a little boy who was so excited to tell Robin his numbers in English!
Kristi cared for a little boy who had all of the “normal” Honduran child problems and a casted broken arm. Kristi provided a lot of teaching and the mother left visibly relieved.
Drew was our pharmacy partner and he helped Sarah, Blakely, Bethie, Kristi, Robin & Janet from becoming “keyed up” by taking blood pressures, filling drug orders, restocking stations and listening to little lung sounds.
Joanne, Emmalyn & Kelli kept the excitement going with bubbles, books and hairbands.
Isaiah included Mathew 19:13 in tonight’s devotion. Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there.
All week the children came and Team Chesterfield shared God’s love by placing hands on them.
