(You will have to read the entire post to understand the title!!
We stopped by the grocery on our way to Agua Agria because many people needed to buy lunch and other supplies. We headed to Ag40ua Agria which is probably no more than 15 miles from the center of town, but it’s at the end of a bumpy, rutted rocky road. That means the trip takes 30-40 minutes.
This is Wyeth from Louisiana helping with the eyeglass clinic. Nahum, in the striped shirt, is the associate minister. He helped us translate.
Going to Agua Agria is like going back in time. We always see cows, chickens and pigs roaming freely through the village. Most houses do not have electricity or indoor plumbing. Torch has worked here for 9-10 (longer than I have been coming. No other missionary groups go there, often times the people only see a doctor or receive medical care when we have a medical clinic. Also, when the word gets out, many others travel from surrounding villages to get there.

|This young lady is wearing the bracelet that I had them make. I'm sure you can tell that I'm miserably hot!!|
Right across the "road" from the church (about 10 feet LOL!)
