I want to thank both of you for the massive logistical behind the scenes effort on the Guyana trip. It was exhilarating to be part of a team effort. This was my first missions trip to a third world country. As I ponder my future in medicine, it seems that I’ve gotten infected with the non ordinary life challenge. I appreciated the chance to teach and to learn a new culture, new food, new people, new disease states, but still recognize their same greatest need - the ticket to Heaven. To be treated as a person, to be touched and encouraged were necessary to the Guyanese as well. (My daughter) and I will seriously consider returning next year, as the Lord wills. We miss the believers that ministered out of their poverty most of all. Dr. from Missouri

From the boat rides on the river, to the palm trees, to the monkeys in the trees, the trip to Guyana was an exciting adventure! It was a blessing to be able to travel with the Wallers, who had been there for years as missionaries, and who knew where it was safe to go/ when we needed to be especially careful, what to eat, even what water we could drink. We were in five different villages over the span of five days. Some of them could only be reached by boat. The patients we saw in those villages have very limited access to healthcare, but many have the same medical problems that are frequently treated in the US, such as hypertension, diabetes, and GERD. I’m an RN that works on an oncology unit, so I got to learn a lot by working in the pharmacy for the week. It was very busy, but fun!
The churches and missionaries that we worked with in each location were a blessing also! It is so wonderful that the many patients who were saved have the opportunity to attend church and be discipled close to where they live.
By the end of the trip, I was saying, “When is the next trip?” I’m looking forward to going again. :)
