Goodbye for now!

A team of fourteen people from Orangewood visited our partners from Armonia Ministries in Oaxaca, Mexico in early September. During the trip, Andrew and Emily Lockhart took over the Orangewood Instagram account (@OrangewoodPCA) to share updates. See all their photos reposted here, as well!

As we close out our time in Oaxaca we are tired, fulfilled, humbled, grateful, sad to leave yet excited to return home and share about our time spent making new friendships and renewing old ones. Our clinics were only successful and possible due to the incredible teamwork of local Mexican doctors, nurses, dentists and the AIMS students that allowed us to partner with them to serve the underprivileged people of greater Oaxaca. We serve because we look to the greatest servant of all, we love because we have been deeply loved and we rejoice in the hope of Jesus that goes far beyond country borders. We are so thankful for the partnership we share with Armonia and for the incredible work that the Lord continues to do in and through the Cruz family ❤️

Site of today's medical and eyeglass clinics. We traveled to a Zapotec pueblo outside of Oaxaca and were fortunate to have been shaded by this pavilion for the day. The local people welcomed us with open arms and were honored to share with us their very best food and drink - they served us a drink that would be compared to a mix of cornstarch and water and loaves of bread. Very humbling to accept the generosity and kindness of people whose lives look so different than our own. #owoodoaxaca

Half of this great group will be heading back home tomorrow. We got to celebrate the trip by sharing a last meal together as a whole. We're thankful for friendships new and old and lots of memories made serving together. #owoodoaxaca

We wish the picture gave this view justice..absolutely breathtaking views of and from calcified waterfalls hidden away in the mountains of Oaxaca. #owoodoaxaca
