Whatever it is that seems so important in your life, whatever occupies your mind, and perhaps keeps you awake at night, give yourself the gift of putting it all on hold for a week.
Your trip to a medically under-served country with like-minded health professionals will make a lasting impact on your friends, your family, and your life because it will make a lasting impact on you.
Expect to see the unexpected.
Expect the indigent who you will serve, and the other team members who will serve with you, to wow you.
Return home to a different place, a better place, because you are different, you are better.
Put what is important in your life into perspective. And sleep well knowing you have accomplished something
