MERCY TRIPS HEALTHCARE OUTREACH
June 5, 2010

Mercy Trips is a unique outreach for me personally. First, it is medically oriented. (I am a physical therapist.) Second, it reaches out to a severely underserved area of eastern Uganda where people largely have to go without surgical services apart from this outreach. And third, it enables me to have a small part in helping my friend Dr. Daniel use his and others' medical gifts in third world areas.

The Great!
