There are two ways that I have thought of that you can be involved in my trip: contributing to the David V. King Medical Center and praying for me. The medical center makes every effort not to turn anyone away for lack of payment. The average cost per patient including medicine and lab work is about $20.00. How cool would it be if one of the patients I meet was served by money you sent in?! To make a donation online, you can click here.
Here are some ways you can be praying for me:
- Pray that I wouldn’t be frustrated while speaking Spanish and I would be intentional to have conversations despite language barriers.
- Pray that I would be intuitive to the needs of the clinic, missionaries, and friends that I make and that I would find ways to support them.
- Pray that I would take advantage of all opportunities while I’m there and truly soak up the wonderful culture I will encounter.
- There have been too many things that have gone perfectly while planning to leave this semester for me not to give God all of the credit. My theme verse for this trip is Proverbs 21:30-31 “There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord. The horse is made ready for the day of battle but victory rests with the Lord.”
