Making house calls at a mountain village in the Dominican Republic, this woman conveyed her gratefulness to me with her eyes fixed on me and her hand on mine.

    This picture is most definitely worthy of worthy ALL THE ATTENTION PROPERLY DUE IT. This doctor is NOT displaying his medical ability… … … he is displaying his true self/his true heart in motion. We do not have this kind of devotion these modern days. Should be titled: A TRUE HEART IN MOTION

    My cousin CY helps on this island too with a group called Mustard Seed. Maybe Dr Joe knows of them.
