For years Aly and Marisa (1st cousins separated by a mere 700+ miles) have had a desire to use our medical knowledge to help those less fortunate than us while spreading the good news of the gospel of Christ. We are very excited to both be embarking on our first medical missions trips using our advanced degrees. Aly is a cardiothoracic Physician's Assistant in a large hospital in Kansas City, and Marisa is a Nurse Anesthetist in a small, rural hospital outside of Toledo, Ohio. With the help of Solid Rock International and Crossroads Church in Napoleon, Ohio we will be traveling with a team of doctors and nurses to San Juan de la Maguana, Dominican Republic to perform much needed surgeries on people who otherwise would not have the money or opportunity to obtain these needed procedures. One important facet, that we are asking you to help us with, is that of medications. We are required to provided our own IV fluids, IV and p.o. (by mouth) medications, and anesthetic gases. For those of you who have had surgery in the past, you know how important these items are!! So we're asking for 2 things, #1 your prayers! We will need this as we with both are greatly outside of our professional comfort zones, using old equipment and new colleagues, and neither of us speak much Spanish (AT ALL). Secondly, prayerfully consider a small financial donation that we will put directly towards the purchase of medications, IV fluids and shipment of donated surgical equiptment. Thank you so much in advance!
