Jornada- 

  1. a full day's travel across a desert without a stop for taking on water.

or in our case, a mission of healing.  

Today we set up camp and welcomed back all of our "promoters", local men and women who donate their time and energy to assist us in or work. Gifted healers with big hearts, we would not be able to serve the thousands of patients if not for their assistance. They are trained up in bodywork, Reiki medicine, auricular needling, and new to this jornada, cupping., and are able to carry on this service to their local communities in between our trips. They are invaluable to our mission. 

Many familiar faces and some fresh smiles of our promoters- we could not do the work without them.   Setting up camp Thousands of needles, suitcases of herbs and other assortments of Chinese medicine need to get sorted out and ready for the waves of patients that start first thing in the morning and continue through the day.
