Notes from the Field
Dr. Eric Fox, MD
Santa Ana, El Salvador
Traveling to third world countries gives us from America a fresh and very different perspective. For those of you who can’t or won’t visit, consider taking a trip to your closest inner city. It can dramatically alter ones perspective. And that is a good thing.

Torrential rains last night and bright and beautiful this morning. Yesterday I commented briefly on the incredible poverty of this country. Despite this (or due to?) the Salvadoran people are some of the most wonderful kind and friendly people I have ever met. It is what keeps me coming back. A wonderful thing about ministering to the health needs of people is that I get to see a personal intimate portrait that I would never experience as a tourist. In a couple hours I leave for Bogota via Panama City. I am eager to meet the Colombians.
