I've visited the Healthe Clinic numerous times so I'm vaccinated and stocked with everything for "just in case" situations from bad food to altitude sickness. Please pray for the health and safetly of our team, if we're sick we can't help those who truly need it!

I find it appropriate that I'll be in the pottery "capital" of South America and my mother is a potter- I'll have to pick up some fun pieces to share with her!
I can't say enough how excited I am to be able to participate in something like this, my family and friends have been so supportive and I couldn't begin to think of doing something like this without that! Especially my husband John who has been so supportive and appropriately concerned throughout all of the preparations- I hope he doesn't give my side of the bed to the dog permanently!
