… and the patients welcome them with a hearty applause
It is a custom at Diospi Suyana to welcome new voluntary members of staff at the end of a morning service. Yesterday was the most recent repetition of this tradition. Apart from the Peruvian Dr Herrera the ladies had to spend some time working hard at the language school. This week their official duties at the hospital commence. Dr Martina John wished her “new” colleagues God’s blessing for their time at Curahuasi. The missionaries are not paid by the Hospital Diospi Suyana, but are supported financially by a circle of friends.
