“It’s gratifying to work in a place that requires every bit of your physical and mental strength to overcome fears, exhaustion, and poor living conditions. Once you have endured the hardship of mission work, the payoff continues long after you come back to everyday life. The issues are real and dangerous and you forget about the trivial problems.” –DR. MIKE MULICK, DO
