My experience was very nice. I really enjoy learning about other people and I have been interested in nursing so I got to experience what to expect in the nursing area through this.
It was my first time serving on mission with Be Free in this way and to see jiggers in people’s feet.
I really felt bad for the people because I didn’t know that it attacks other parts other than the feet and I saw them in elbows, fingers and just everywhere. I also some noted that the people really felt the pain especially small kids from what these bugs were doing to them.
At first it was difficult because I was not used to doing this type of work of removing them. But after training and treating one patient it became easier. I felt so happy to be able to help them in this way.
The biggest thing that I learned is showing love through bringing cure to people regardless of who they are and the situation they are in. It was really powerful. We also had time with the American team who encouraged us in our futures which we really appreciated.
It challenged me to appreciate my good health and the lifestyle I have because not everyone experiences that good feeling of having what they need.
Yes I really want to.
I’d like them to know that they should be thankful for good health. Also that there is always grace to do what they want to.They should also pray for people out there who are suffering in this way and just those who do not have access to help for their needs.
