Dear Lord, as we go today to a world of bounty and comfort from a world of poverty, need and disease,
Help us to overcome the powerlessness to reconcile both worlds.
Help us to accept the fact that we cannot remedy all that seems wrong and unfair.
We cannot cure all.
Help us cure our own sadness and perhaps our own sense of guilt.
Help us instead to be filled with gratitude for what we have: health, wealth, education and the precious opportunity to serve.
But above all, give us the wisdom and the will to fill evey day of our lives with acts of gratitude.
Being able to go to Mexico has been a blessing for me. Spending this time working side by side with Melissa has been a special time. I have worked with Melissa and Dr. Peller for about 6 years but have rarely had the chance to work along side of them. Thanks to my family for keeping things together at home and allowing me to take this journey. It has been an amazing 12 days.
