"Education is not complete unless it is built on character" --Father Flanagan
Now that I am in the airport waiting for my flight, I finally have some time to write about this trip! I will be traveling to Guatemala for 3 weeks, returning home in mid January. I am an on-the-ground-assistant this trip, which means I am more of an aid/ teacher this time around. I'm excited for the opportunity to work more with people in the hospitals than the equipment!
I am feeling really great about this trip for a few reasons. First of all, inventories have already been completed for some of the hospitals we are staying in. This will totallt cut down on work and give more time to focus on repairing the problem than finding the problem. The second item that made me excited was a penny heads up I found in the suitcase I am taking. Sure sign of good luck. And the third is a quote my grandma sent me that both supports my efforts and makes me want to do more. Sometimes we need a little push, no matter how small, to get us motivated.
I am incredibly excited to do this again. I have steak, Gobbs, strawberries and a grapefruit packed in my bag for good measure. Who's up for round 2?!
