Updates from Bruce and Jenni Lehnert as we prepare for our departure next month.
My tenth medical mission to Vietnam is quickly approaching. It's hard believe that I have been doing this for 17 years. What a long strange trip it's been. Vietnam has grown up so much during this time. The hospital has changed. There so few bicycles and now so many cars and scooters.
The one constant that does not change is the deformities we correct and the lives we change. The support of our donors and volunteers is amazing and allows our grassroots mission to carry on. Thanks to all the volunteers and donors, both past and present.
There's so much to do before we take off. Finalizing our inventory and packing supplies is just the beginning. We need to orient and train our new volunteers. In addition to all the medical mission work, there's a lot do with our life here so we can check out for two weeks. But it's all worth it!
