  1. Hello team members, please have a wonderful trip. I am sure you will help lots of children. Please eliminate the graphic photo that is posted. Please do not blog any more graphic surgical photos. Thanks, diane

  2. We are working so hard for these kids. The hospital and the staff have been great helping us get use to their culture and their language. What an experience!

  3. Keep up the great work all! I was truly looking forward to seeing the graphic pictures for better understanding of the procedures!

  4. It was amazing to see how much good we were able to do in the first day. Our projected finish time was 8pm but I believe we got back to our hotel at 10pm. Our mission crew was spectacular we pushed through every day with the determination to help the children.
