Operation Smile Mission

Three years ago, I stumbled across a blog of a surgical nurse volunteer with Operation Smile. The blog followed the Operation Smile team as they were on a mission in China, creating smiles.

Today, the team leaves for a new mission, to Paraguay. And the blog, is of the same surgical nurse from three years ago!

When I followed this mission three years ago, it gave me the desire to want to use my nursing skills someday on an Operation Smile mission, but after some research, I discovered you have to have your RN in order to go. I don't have that, and doubt I'll ever go back for it, so I'll watch and follow Jeff and the team "change lives, one smile at a time".

If you'd like to follow the team on this mission, you can do so here.

Don't you love Operation Smile? Our Sunday School Class donated money in Adalynn's name as a good-bye present in our honor when we moved from GA to PA. I felt very blessed that they would go to the trouble to do that.

I remember thinking that was the coolest present to give too!
