    Your description of the patients reply to what you said about being a nurse with two hands, changed me perspective about missionary nursing. See, I go on mission trips now and have helped in certain health clinics in Panama and Guatemala.

(Second to last semester) of nursing school and then I am starting on missions with a team from my church. I am in school to be a missionary nurse and I pray that even though I help the 99, but can't get to the 1...

You can't save then all but many times you make a difference in others lives, in such an indirect way all you can do is your best!
