This is my 3rd mission. It never ceases to amaze me how much my heart is touched every time I see a mother or father look at the face of their child after surgery.  With the limited resources of these very poor people, there is one element that truly does not lack, the abundant amount of love they have for their (already) beautiful children.  I do feel as though I'm a small part of something great here and I'm the grateful one.  The smiles and hugs I remember will sustain me for a life time.  My cup runneth over – Jacquelyn
