Happy new year! I can’t believe it’s 2018, but I am excited to see what God does with this year! For me, this year that will be filled with excitement, work, and adventure. As most of you know, I recently completed my first semester of nursing school and have been accepted to go to Kenya in the summer of a medical missions trip. This has been a dream of mine since high school! The decision to pursue this dream has been preceded by a lot of prayer, counsel, and confirmation.
I would like to take a few moments to tell you about an upcoming medical clinic that I have been invited to participate in; and to extend you an invitation to become part of this experience here in the US. On behalf of IMR, I will be working alongside other qualified volunteers and medical professionals to provide health care in some of the most impoverished regions of this area. We are confident that we will be able to help more people than ever, but we need financial assistance to help the trip be successful.
The majority of the patients we will see are treatable and we will bring medicines and medical supplies to help our patients and save lives. The information we provide to both the patient and the local health care community will be invaluable to them long after we leave. We will be providing humanitarian outreach to the physical needs of our patients and also give them hope through community health classes, caring, sharing, and showing them our compassion. While one week is too little time to treat all the sick, it is nevertheless ample time to provide education and hope for a promising future.
I invite you to take part with our medical team through prayer, financial giving, encouragement, and support. Each team member will need to provide donations to cover our personal expenses. In addition, we are attempting to raise additional funds to provide for medicines and supplies, development of programs and general support of IMR.
If after thoughtful consideration, you desire to support IMR and me financially, please donate to this page.
Thank you all for your prayer and support!
