I hope this message finds you all well as summer is wrapping up. I hope that you've gotten a chance to relax, to breathe in the business, and spend this summer with people you love... maybe even adventure a little! I wanted to give you an update of my next adventure that recently fell into my lap!
From October 20-28 I will be going to Antigua, Guatamala on a medical mission trip! I'm going to be helping with a women's health clinic offered through the organization Humanity First.
We will do a combination of educational workshop sessions, collect research, and provide women's health services and cancer screenings. In May, when the last women’s health camp was held in Antiqua, 1040 women were seen, educated, and treated! There's a link attached to this page under "My Fundraisers" that explains a little more of what we'll be doingl :)
HF Guatemala relies on the volunteer to help make this camp a reality, as the organization uses as little external support as possible. With this approach, virtually all of the funds that volunteers pay go directly towards the mission and the people in need, along with covering all camp logistics (hiring of the local doctors, setting up and funding the pharmacy, medical supplies and equipment, etc). Without the US team volunteers, HF isn’t able set up the camp and help these lovely local ladies and their families!
I am so thankful and excited for this opportunity to serve in a way I have been eagerly anticipating since my trip to Zambia. Many of you know about my recent life happenings and broken engagement, but the amazing thing in this is that I truly feel like God has brought me this opportunity as a way for me to get excitied, remember my passions, and heal my heart. I am looking forward to see what I'm going to learn through this experience!
Thank you everyone for your generous support to me in this (crazy) season of my life, and please continue to support me in however you feel led.
