We worked really hard this week on the Food Project in San Jose de Ocoa and preparing for the visit by the NRT doctors.
During our visit with San Jose de Ocoa we were invited to eat lunch with a family. It makes us nervous to eat in the homes of the native people because they simply do not have the same standards of cleanliness that we have, but it is a very rude thing to refuse. So we eat and pray to stay well. They are such good people and consider it a great honor to have us dine with them. They love us and we love them, so we cannot do any less. The meal is almost always the same: a lot of rice, habichuelas (beans) and chicken. It really is a good meal and we love the flavor of the food.
