Getting to know the Community

 Hello again,

Today was day 2 of volunteer work in El Salvador, and what a day it has been.  We started the day with Spanish lessons, and soon after that, we went with Morena to perform prenatal visits with locals.

 Afterwards we had lunch, and we helped out around the clinic whenever it was needed.

Reading?  We can help with that too.

After lunch, with met with a number of community leaders.  We also began work decorating for a large community event coming up in about 3 weeks.  We are very excited to be working with the local community to ensure this will be a successful event!
