Dear Family and Friends,
Greetings! I pray that this letter finds you and your family
well. I am now in my fourth and final year of nursing school. The Lord has been so faithful! He is
doing wonderful things and I know that He will continue to be faithful to finish the good work
He has started in me, especially this last year of school. As I finish my training, God has given
me to the opportunity to go to Guatemala not only to further my education, but also to join Him
in His work there.
On January 4, I will be departing on a medical mission trip
to the central highlands of Guatemala for 10 days. From 1960 to 1996, Guatemala was involved
in a civil war. Thousands of children were orphaned as a result. The purpose of this mission trip
is to provide medical treatment to these orphaned children, most of whom have never seen a
doctor. We anticipate treating 450 to 500 children. The treatment will include a complete
physical, treatment for intestinal parasites and head lice (all of the children seen will be treated
for these two conditions), vitamin K shots, immunization, and treatment of any other condition
within the capability of the medical team. A physician and a dentist will be a part of the mission
team. They are both missionaries in Guatemala. The remainder of the team will be nurses and
The trip is being funded entirely through donations and by
those going on the mission trip. Everything that will be used on the trip must be taken with us.
This includes all of the medical supplies, medicines, syringes, bandages, etc. Donations of
medical supplies, books, shoes, etc. are being sought. Fund-raisers are being held by those going
on the trip. Every penny collected will be used to directly benefit the children of Guatemala. Any
unused supplies will be left with the missionaries.
I am excited about the opportunity to serve and to minister,
and I ask you to join me in ministry. I am seeking your support and prayers for this mission trip.
If you are able to assist with this trip, I would ask that you forward any donation to me with the
check or money order payable to "MNU Guatemala Mission Trip". An accounting of all funds
will be available, should you desire to see it, upon our return from Guatemala.
I thank you in advance for your prayers and your financial
support. May God bless you richly!
His therefore Yours,
