Juan and Dr. Sergio

The gentlemen on either side of Laura got little sleep last week.  Juan assists her on every trip, driving, helping pick up medical supplies, loading and unloading medical kits from the van, and chauffeuring our brigade from village to village.  He is Laura’s right hand in Mexico.  Dr. Sergio Martinez Ibarraran is from Guadalajara, but is currently doing consultations in the Health Center in San Juan de los Lagos.  He was instrumental in helping us acquire local sponorships, arranging meetings with the local officials, and assisting the villagers in selecting their Promotores.  He did all this while still doing his normal workload of caring for his patients.
