The holidays is arguably the best time of year to participate in service activities and it’s less stressful than holiday crowds at the mall! For the next week I will be in La Carpio (pictured left) volunteering and researching a future medical mission or other project. I encourage everyone to take some time and do something that makes them feel good.
I am lucky to have a great copilot in Dr. Patrick Klemawesch who is a skilled physician, musician and overall great human being. We will be working to improve the health care situation for families in the most impoverished area of La Carpio. Of course, we are doing research for our next medical mission or service trip so you can join in too.
I will try to get pics and post when I have time. So far it has been a great start out of the gates. We went from the airport straight to La Carpio to take part in an impromptu soup kitchen. More to come tomorrow when we begin treating the sick.
Here’s your Spanish word for the day: Abrazo. That’s what we send everyone at home.
