Prayer is all you need!
Today was Ray and my last day of clinic, which was very bittersweet. Thinking back to one week ago when the team all met each other in Atlanta seems like a different lifetime. We all arrived as strangers, but came together as a strong team serving God and the people of Guatemala. We were happy to have had such an amazing first trip, and being the newbie travel nurses from Michigan, we were so
God is Here
This is my first experience here in Guatemala. I didn't know what to expect. What I didn't expect is the conditions the people here live in...and despite that they are a happy people.

The other was to do a medical mission, to serve others that desperately need medical attention. As the Diabetes Educator,
Clinic Day 1
Such an amazing experience on my first day in Membrillal clinic. As a "newbie" it can be a bit overwhelming not knowing what to expect or even do at times. The support of the more seasoned staff certainly helped especially when you felt at a loss on what to do with so many things happening at one time. What I loved the most was interacting with the families who wait so patiently to be
