Friends, Family, and Followers...I'm off on another journey.
Yesterday I accepted an invitation to go to Peru.
Since I returned from Africa,
my friend Carlie and I have been working with
Lynley, the professor that took us to Ghana. We are
writing a research proposal to publish the findings
we gathered from our research while in Ghana.
Yesterday, we were accepted to present at a
medical conference in Cuzco, Peru.
We will be traveling to Lima (capitol of Peru) in 5 weeks
along with many local Utah doctors.
For 5 days, our group will be presenting current
research to Peruvian doctors and medical staff,
as well as personal and public health,
organized response to natural disasters and
other medical related information.
Of course, we will be visiting Mount Machu Picchu,
spending one night camping at its base
then hiking it the next morning.
As for the rest of the time,
since I don't speak spanish, I along with
other non-spanish-speaking team members,
will be filling my week with humanitarian service
and lots of manual labor (uh oh).
I am so excited by this surprise opportunity
and cannot wait to visit a land and people
I never expected to see.
I leave March 20th, so stay tuned and,
as always, I'll keep you posted!
