We partnered with International Medical Assistance and served in Valladolid, Yucatan, MEXICO for one week.
One life-changing week.I’d heard the trip would change my life. Heard, but didn’t comprehend. I’m still struggling to write because so much happened. It’s time to jump in though.
I’m now an URN. An Unregistered Nurse in every US state and most in Mexico.
Caring for the patients in post-op for 10,11 and 12 hour days has left me burning with passion to answer God’s call. The call to care for all of His people in a deeper way. Being a part of something much bigger than myself has become my one desire.
I’m exploring all the options for going back to school to become a nurse. Maybe even a Registered Nurse if I’m lucky.
I’ve got to believe though, that after everything I was privileged to do and all the medical things I participated in, that in God’s economy, I’m registered. Seems a real fine place to start.
So, much more later. For now I’m asking God to reveal the path.
What about you? What do you when you are overwhelmed with the good choices of fully living?
A quick update on where our son Keegan and I’ll be, this time next week.
We leave Saturday for Valladolid, Yucatan, MEXICO. Sleep is elusive, as I’m so excited. Keegan is serving on the music team and the band will lead us in morning devotions and put on several open air concerts. I’ll be working in pre-op at the hospital in the picture. I’m most looking forward to helping ease the pain and suffering of our Mayan brothers and sisters, in Jesus’ name.
To those who have supported us financially and spiritually, you have made a huge difference in many lives already. Truly, we would not have been able to go if hadn’t been for you. We look forward to putting hands, feet and voices to your prayers as well your dollars.
I discovered tonight that the hospital has a Facebook page. Check it out HERE. I don’t know a lot of Spanish, but enough to see that they are excited about us coming and they have been praying for us. That humbled me to the core.
I can’t wait to get my flip flops on the ground in Valladolid as Keegan and I both will be rocking it for God’s people.
We covet your continued prayers.
On July 14 Keegan and I will be traveling to Valladolid, Yucatan, Mexico to serve on a medical mission trip with Scottsdale Bible Church. We will travel with an incredible team of Doctors, Dentists, Nurses, Musicians and Outreach experts.
At this point, I will be working in the hospital, in pre-op. If you know me at all, you know this isn’t a case of God calling the equipped. I know though, that He has indeed called and will equip me. I’m most excited about being able to show God’s love to a literal, physically hurting people. Through an interpreter and my actions, I will show each patient how important they are, how much they are loved by God.
We will bring healing to the sick, serve surrounding villages, put on open air concerts and perform up to 200 surgeries and necessary procedures.
Every person that is treated in the hospital will have the opportunity to hear the gospel. I’m so excited and blessed to be a part of this team.
I’m looking to partner with you; the very much equipped. There are 3 ways that we can team up and do this together.
1.) Prayer. Pray for safe travel, safety in the Mayan village, that we would bless people mightily and that the funds to go and serve would be generated in God’s perfect timing.
2.)Financial support: Total cost of the trip is $1800. Every donation in any amount is tremendously helpful. Your financial support is tax deductible and you’ll be provided with a receipt.
3.) Help us by purchasing items from the following list:
