Scholarship Nurses Embark on Their Journeys
Every year, thousands of people travel abroad, hoping to ease suffering, save lives and make a difference in countries other than their own. Each has a story to tell. Each one has learned more than he or she ever could have imagined about other cultures -- and about themselves.This week One Nurse At A Time has THREE scholarships nurses heading out on medical missions. They are special nurses who are about to embark on a great adventure. Laura Brown is returning to Haiti; Lauren Johnson will be working in Honduras; and Susannah Watts will be providing anesthesia in Niger. One nurse at a time these women are making a difference! Please hold them in your thoughts and prayers and join me in wishing them a safe journey.
