Medical Midwifery focused mission trip in the works
WOWZA! Our agency director at Addy's Hope, HollyAnn and a midwife friend are putting together a medical mission trip to Liberia for, oh less than a month from today, to go and teach birthing classes to village women, going equipped with birth kits for the pregnant ladies!! THIS is a dream of mine which I have shared with lots of people for years, that God would let me go and teach from my experience as an OB nurse and as a midwife, teaching prenatal care, safe birthing techniques, newborn care, maternal and new born nutrition.... in a missions capacity "one day". I thought that would probably be when and if we ever had an "empty nest" HA HA HA.like that's gonna happen!!! But I digress. HollyAnn shared yesterday to a prayer group we both belong to about this proposed trip and I invited myself to be invited. She quickly and graciously responded that she never turns down a volunteer. SO, I am praying about this awesome possibility and how it might dovetail together with Daniel's adoption and home coming. Charlie and children are unanimous that its a wonderful opportunity, with some IFs to be prayed over and worked out. Please pray with us about how this might open up as a life long dream come true for that OTHER important part of my life as well as how it will work for bringing Daniel home ASAP to begin his much needed treatment and surgery!!!
