Thundering Hammers and Thundering Clouds

The day began early with an interesting lecture by Fausto Torrez, who is the International Relations secretary for the Association of Rural Farmers (ATC). He illustrated the power of agroecology and its sustainable impacts. We then ventured to the clinic to continue our escapade. Some people worked on putting up wooden structures for future concrete pouring, cemented cinderblocks into the X-Ray room, worked in the pharmacy, and others went out into the community with Marion for house calls. We went back to the dorms for lunch with the company of the JHC staff. They highlighted their key view points on liberation theology, the social programs of the Ortega regime, and the struggles of the JHC community. The discussion expanded to a 2.5 hours conversation, so we arrived back at the clinic at about 2:45 with the heat a little bit more intense than usual. We continued our work from the morning until 4:30. A storm rolled in causing the rest of the night to have the background music of booming thunder. The group relaxed for a little bit until dinner and then a group reflection. Energy is high in anticipation for visiting Granada.
