This trip has been full of all kinds of new experiences and some which are similar to my first trip to Guatemala. The most familiar thing is the great people. What a blessing to have friends and acquaintances in this life that lift us and make us better people. As my grandma used to say, if you meet someone who is not a friend it is up to you to do something about that. We see that as we experience clinic on a daily basis and see these people who need so much from each of us but in turn teach us each so much.
Humility is a trait less often valued by our world around us, however one of the traits which was best exemplified by He who was the Master Physician. As I sit in these beautiful surroundings with these great people I am thankful again for all those at home who help to make this happen in a very real sense you are a silent member of this team and mission and I will be ever grateful for those who contribute behind the scenes and pick up the slack so that we as a team may serve our fellow men. My hope when I go home from this trip is that I will be able to take that spirit which is so abundant here of serving the one in front of us into my daily life at a higher level from day to day. Likewise It amazes me how when we are in the service of our fellow men together the different perceived boundaries of religion seem to melt into what truly matters in our Savior’s eyes. Thanks for taking the time to read and support our efforts, I apologize if this doesn’t make sense - I really should learn to use punctuation. God bless you all and your families.
