One of the privileges of being a health care professional is travelling to other countries to provide care to underserved people. So, I have volunteered on several teams with HealthCare Ministries, whose mission is “BRINGING HIS HOPE THAT HEALS.”
And one of the pleasures of travelling is when our hosts express their appreciation by showing us the local sites and culture. In Panama, of course, that meant a visit to the Panama Canal, an engineering marvel. The landscape and people of Panama are also captivating. Add to that a warm and usually sunny climate, made for an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
