Review for MERCY TRIPS HEALTHCARE OUTREACH, Odessa, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had a completely different view before I left on the Mercy Trip Ugandan Mission Trip. I thought I was going out to show God in this great America that us Christians were here to bring the masses to Christ...I was so wrong...I saw more God in these people than I had ever seen. Talk about faith...they have the utmost faith in our services, these beautiful people feel priveleged to be near us. We get the respect of the leaders of the surrounding villages with no fear of reprisal. They honor us with their presence. Dr. Mutono and his wife Helen kept us informed and happy, my best evenings were shared with these wonderful people that left a good life and moved with their children to open the hospital at Kangimina in Uganda. The children were amazing, when we would take them in for their procedures they were well behaved and almost stoic and grateful for the care. The women were always thanking us. This was an amazing time for me, besides helping in the OR, I realized how much we take for granted in this country and we are never quite happy. I saw true joy in the hearts and faces of the people we were here to serve. willing to share what little they had with us and each other.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The fellowship and commaraderie.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

All very professional and caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help us help more people and help us stay longer
