LEARNING FROM THE POOR
The locals were from a poor community yet they were very cheerful and positive about their lives. We learned not to judge them but to be humble and associate with them, like Jesus would.

Prior to this trip, Father provided me a volunteer to translate all my lecture slides on diabetes education – was a great help! I was able to share my knowledge and experience with the local nurses and patients. Was an enriching experience!
