SUMMARY

"I have  known for quite some time, most of my life that God was calling me to be involved in some sort of missionary work, what that was became clear to me when I was offered an opportunity to go to Mexico with TIME for Christ in 1997.  I heard some nurses talking about this group and I asked them about it and they told me. Since that time I have gone to Mexico numerous times on Medical Mission trips.  There were numerous volunteers on these trips ,many active duty Air Force personnel  both surgeons and anesthesiololgists and nurses.  People from all over the United States would converge here in San Antonio and Drive down to central Mexico and set up a field hospital in a local village school that had been made available to us.  The types of surgery we did dependED on what surgeons volunteered..."
