Life in Trinidad

I now have some kind of routine, when I first got to Trinidad the kids were still on their summer holiday so a lot of things had not yet started - a nice easy way to get used to everything here! I am volunteering at Fundacion Totai, a Christian organisation that runs a healthcare clinic with a dentist, audiology specialty and have surgical campaigns several times a year for ENT surgery. They also have a sports ministry (football and basketball) and education ministry which includes teaching Bible stories in a local school, kids after school club and English classes. Then the church has a youth group, kids Bible club, womens craft group as well as their usual services, so there is a lot going on! I have been helping with the Education activities and admin in the clinic, as well as trying to learn more Spanish!
It has been great getting to know people and the kids here, everyone is so friendly! My Spanish is still not great, so be praying that I put more effort into learning more, especially as next week I am teaching in the school as well as helping to lead the kids after school club!

  1. Sounds like you are having a challenging but rewarding time in Bolivia! Such interesting work you are getting involved in! Praying that your Spanish continues improving (I'm sure you've come on leaps and bounds with it already!) Keep up the good work and God Bless, Nicole xx
