Hi, my name is Bethany and I went on my first mission with MMI this February to Honduras. My experience as an attendant in an emergency department came in very handy even though I went as a non medical volunteer. I have to say this was an amazing hands on experience for me and everyone that came on this trip. All of the MMI staff are very organized, hardworking, wonderful people who truly dedicate themselves to MMI and serving God by helping the people of Honduras. Everyday we would travel to a new village to set up our clinic and see as many people as we could. Each village was special in it's own way but I'd have to say one of the highlights for me was in Miami when family's came to us by boat from the other side of the lagoon just to see us. Truly made me feel so blessed to be able to help them in some small way. I came home feeling very humble, blessed and that I had made a difference in someone's life. I feel I received far more then I gave in that week. The children are so happy and joyful even though they have so little. I think of them often during my days back here in Canada. I met some pretty fantastic people on this trip and made some new friends. I have always thought our lead nurse Marcella was very good in our ER in Canada, but I was simply amazed at what she was able to accomplish there setting up a new clinic each day in a matter of minutes. I plan to return again next year with MMI. This time in the Mountains of Honduras I believe. Can't wait!!
