Glad to have Ari Cale here with us. This is another person from America with whom we share some common history. She is from Washington state, went to Harding University. Of course with our Church of Christ background, that gives us a lot in common with her. She did medical school in Ft. Worth, and then residency in Tulsa, Oklahoma. So it is like we have been neighbors for years! I grew up in Oklahoma, lived in Dallas and Washington state, and we went to Abilene Christian University. (Right now in our little region of Apurimac there are at least 3 ACU graduates and 1 Harding graduate. When we were at the Spanish Language Institute there were at times at least 7-9 of us who had been at ACU. Way to go Christian university education!) Back to Ari, she is also very thoughtful, enthusiastic about God and serving others, and she is someone who will make you think, especially in spiritual matters. Ari, welcome to Curahuasi! Also from the Diospi Suyana Hospital website.
We are thankful for our friends from the USA
