There is so much to report every day, that I just feel overwhelmed and don't know were to start.

Yesterday someone came to tell us that the woman who delivered felt like she was bleeding so we went sprinting through the jungle in the pouring tropical rain to help. Turns out she was fine so we stayed for quite a long time with her chatting and encouraging her to have some soup. This woman's husband died 3 weeks ago and her father hung himself the night before we arrived so she is feeling very vulnerable and worried about her ability to provide for her small children.

Since being on the island we have experienced a funeral, wedding and birth.
