As this is my first post, you may have to bear with me; Dr Brian is the tech guy, and when he said I would really love an IPad and then got me one, I figured the least I could do is write a daily blog. So here it is.
This is my first mission trip and I decided to make the most of it. So I am on my way to Mongolia to join a team of veterinarians with Christian Veterinary Missions, who have a very good long term relationship with the Mong. Veterinary community. My “purpose” is twofold: first I am here to help guide and disciple the people I will be working with, in Christian principles and living. Second, I will be overseeing a small animal hospital and the teaching of veterinarians and students in practicing clinical veterinary medicine and surgery. I am very excited about this opportunity.
I am writing from Washington DC waiting at the busy airport. I came within 10 minutes of not making the flight because of visa questions, but thank the Lord, I made it through. Note to self, try to avoid Beijing/China if you want smooth tranquil travel.
I have a long layover in Beijing, so I will post from there. Hopefully they will let me out because my suitcase has lots of stuff security does not like to see (scalpels, needles, surg scissors).
