Anticipated Impact

In my particular field in Guatemala City, I will be under the auspices of a local organization that supports the churches of the city. I will be running a family medicine clinic in the slum built on the city dump and also functioning as the primary care provider for an orphanage on the edge of the city. The other main medical provider on our team will be doing work with churches both in and around Guatemala City along the CHE model, training and equipping community health workers. My husband is a psychologist and will be providing therapy to local pastors, hoping to leave a legacy of churches that are healthy and pastored by emotionally healthy leaders.
