I hope you are doing well :)
I know most of you are still freezing up in the Northeast, but I'm constantly sending up warm thoughts and love to you all~
I apologize that I have not been able to keep in touch with all of you and personally share about my experiences from my first semester of medical school. As you can tell, I survived!! Largely in part due to your constant encouragement and support, so thank you! You all have been a part of this journey that I have been called to in one way or another and I wake up each day knowing that I am blessed and loved.
I am reaching out to you because of some amazing news I wanted to share. I just received an email that I have been accepted to be a part of the Christian Medical and Dental Association medical missions team going to Honduras this summer from May 31 - June 8! We will be working with a team of physicians, dentists, physician's assistants, physical therapists and medical students to serve the citizens of San Marcos de Colon. Honduras is one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. The country is still suffering from the devastation caused by Hurricane Mitch, almost 16 years ago, and the majority of the population lives significantly below the poverty line. Our team is one of four teams that serves in Honduras each year, and the only team that serves in San Marcos de Colon. With the variety of health professionals on our team, we hope to provide well-rounded care to the under-privileged.
As you may know, the cost of funding a medical missions trip is quite heavy. Any donation would be appreciated very much. I understand if you cannot support me financially at this time, but ask that you keep me and my team in your thoughts and prayers as we prepare over the next few months, and for the trip itself as well. I am honored to be a part of this team and humbled that God would use someone as weak and imperfect as me to go and be His hands and feet to our brothers and sisters in Honduras. Thank you for taking the time to read my letter!! If you have any additional questions about my trip, please do not hesitate to email/call/text me!
