Flooding Susie’s Inbox

Bon Voyage!

I’m headed off to Trinidad first thing in the morning for a weeklong medical mission trip! I’ll be joining a large team of talented medical professionals in serving the hurting and poor people of Trinidad by offering free medical care in traveling clinics.  We’ll care for their ailments, play with their children and share the love of Christ with them.  I fully expect to be blown away by the people I meet, the things I see and the lessons I learn.

I’m ashamed to admit that before this trip, I had no idea where Trinidad was! If you’re interested, it’s just off the coast of Venezuela in the Atlantic.

My generous sister, Susie, is letting me borrow her sweet camera so I’ll be back next Monday with tons of (hopefully) gorgeous images of the lush, tropical terrain.

Here’s a little peek at some of what I’ll be seeing.

Maracas Bay Beach, Trinidad, October 2007

Of course we’ll see the sadder side of Trinidad as well…

I look forward to finding out and sharing with you all what the Lord is doing in this beautiful but hurting island.  Stay tuned…

  2. I am so proud of you for going, and I am praying for you often every day. I love you very much and you wont believe how many times I’ve gone to text or call you and remembered you are in a foreign country.

  4. Sorry to disappoint but Trinidad is an oil rich nation with a teaching hospital one of the most modern in the caribbean. Not quite sure what you meant about hurting and you third photo is definitely not modern day Trinidad you are more likely to see a Hummer or Lexus.
