Kerri and I had a wonderful time at the Medical Missions 101 Gathering. We met many wonderful people who have served on medical missions to different countries and learned about how their organizations provide direct help or provide assistance to organizations such as Dignity:Liberia. We attended presentations on various topics which included discussions on making sure well-intended efforts don't cause harm. We were pleased to note that Dignity:Liberia already follows much of the advice we heard. We picked up a couple of copies of a Health Education handbook that stresses health promotion and prevention. We shared with others what we have accomplished over the last six years, and the news that our maternity waiting home is getting closer to becoming a reality. It was a very worthwhile way to spend the day.
