THE STORY:

It is with much joy to tell you that I will be going to India this winter from December 28th to January 10th! As a senior nursing student at Baylor University, I have been learning how to care for various kinds of people including pregnant women, children, and infants, and the geriatric population. Providing care that ranged from feeding and bathing to assessing and administering medications, I’ve had the opportunity to provide competent and compassionate holistic care to my patients.
When I heard about the various mission trips held this year, I was immediately drawn to India for its rich, diverse culture. As I researched more about the country, I started to see the widespread poverty, inequality brought by the caste system, and the muted voices of the people that were hidden beneath the colorful layer of India’s culture. To then see professors and nursing students address the prevalent brokenness in India during their annual medical mission trips gave me hope and a strong desire join them.
Throughout our stay in Bengaluru, the 3rd largest city in India, we will be doing community outreaches and tentmaking ministry in rural villages, educating people basic hygiene practices, infant care, and other preventative measures. Using posters and puppets, we hope to provide culturally sensitive teaching to adults and children that can be easily remembered and applied. We also have the opportunity to meet with Indian nursing students and teachers during research interviews and a regional simulation workshop that we will prepare before we leave for India.
I thank you for your interest and willingness to hear about this trip. It has been a great encouragement for me as I prepare for this trip with a nervous yet excited heart. I would love for you to join me and others in supporting our trip through prayer and/or financial support!
