On Sundays, those who wish may attend a church, whether católica or evangélica, or we’ll hold a service of our own at the hotel (we kinda take over places, whether hospitals or hotels. Or schools to hold clinic).
Often the pastor of a local church will have been working with us during the week, or providing transportation, or his church members making lunches, and we’ll have got to know some of them pretty well. They become our patients, and we their parishoners-for-a-day.
I’m sorry I don’t have pictures of iglesias evangélicas (Protestant churches) except on slide film. Many of these are small, often backyard or in the pastor’s house; or perhaps a rented storefront building—and not photogenic. In farm villages, an iglesia evangélica may be a plain wood or concrete building with no more than a sign above the door, or a cross, to indicate what it is.
The iglesias católicas, on the other hand, are often very beautiful and much older. Even a small town may have a gorgeous building, almost always opposite the town square. And town squares can resemble the Garden of Eden, as in the first photo from the village of Guano.
