Today was another day of driving along narrow streets with walls lining the pathway to our destination where we are met by the lineup of patient locals waiting for healthcare.
We never know who will be there. We never know who we will see. They wait acceptingly and with a smile to meet with a healthcare provider to share their story.
I endeavor to practice the simple ministry of presence today — purposing to be present not knowing their world but caring, loving, and giving with compassion.
