I made 15 kits that we are calling Birthing Kits, there is a towel, a blanket and a hat for use right after the baby is born.
We were able to get some of the newborn kits from the USNS Comfort when it was here. We gave 80 of these kits to the Pateras, they were so excited. Here Elder Yost is showing them the kits.
The old passing on knowledge to the young. They are such beautiful, humble people.
It was so wonderful to visit with these friends again.
WEDNESDAY JUNE 8, 2011
We made a quick day trip back to Ambato to visit with the hospital there and donate some more NRT manuals for them to use in their teaching, and to visit again with some of the pateras. They were so excited to see us and report on how they are doing. We were also able to donate newborn kits, birthing kits, and other materials for their use in training others. They have become very special to us and I hope we get to visit with them again.
