I was originally asked to go to Venezuela to teach neonatal resuscitation with my church but now I have been reassigned to Colombia and I won’t be able to go to Venezuela. I wanted to go to Venezuela, but I am also so excited to have the opportunity to return to Colombia. It’s such a blessing to be able to go. I will be going to two cities, Florencia (gateway to the amazon region) and Monteria (near the Caribbean coast in Northern Colombia). We’ll be teaches two advanced American Academy of Pediatrics Neonatal resuscitation Program (NRP) courses to train the doctors and nurses so that they can perpetuate the NRP program in their own hospitals and clinics. Colombia has a high infant mortality rate and our mission is to help save the lives of Colombian babies. The church also donates a lot of supplies. I’ll be gone for eight days in June.

Can you find Florencia and Monteria?
