April 26 – May 6, 2018

“Southern India was an exhilarating place to visit and serve. The people, colors, smells, noise, foods and chaos will not be easily forgotten. I returned home exhausted with the sense of satisfaction you receive when helping others. However, I am most grateful to the many people I met who my life even more.”           – Pamela, RN; Medical Missions 2016 and 2017
