Peace, Hope, Health, Safety, Completeness...
If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
— 1 John 3:17-18
As a veteran of overseas orthopaedic work projects, the Moore model is unique: it provides the ability to perform sophisticated surgery in a modern safe environment with professional sub-specialty collegiality, teaching and follow-up care.

While I participated in this mission with the intent of providing interpretation/translation services for the medical staff at Vanderbilt and the patients and staff in Guatemala, I soon realized that this experience is greater than me and that my services extended beyond breaking language barriers. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to be able to be the language liaison in providing medical care, hope and encouragement for families in Guatemala who otherwise would not have received such help. I believe we all must use our gifts, skills, experiences and circumstances to better our communities and world. Thus, I look forward to being able to continue to contribute my language services in Guatemala and other Spanish-speaking countries in the future.

When compared to all the children in the world who need help, at times it seems like these missions are just a small drop in the bucket. But to these individual children and their families, it’s a massive drop in a little bucket.
