Exhaustion sets in

The team has been working very hard during this mission with only a few days off. Even days off start at 6:00 am or 7:00 am to offer our services for charity work etc... Clinic days are typically from 7:00 am until 7:00 pm. The look of exhaustion on our teams faces ONLY describes the amount of time for quick naps on the bus back and forth from hotel to clinic. Do not let the sleepiness fool you. Each and everyone of our team members are rejuvenated and eager and ready for each day ahead. The energy and passion of this team is forever impressive!!!

Sadly, I can not sleep on a moving vehicle, therefore, I document all others dreaming about our next clinic day!!!!!

Even Bac Si Ha has to squeeze in a small nap. This is due to the fact that after treating over 100 patients per day at clinic, he returns to the hotel and continues until late in the evening treating patients of the community that travel to be relieved of their pain! I will quote Andrew, a Mercer student, who said it best:
 "Im not sure what impresses me more, 1. The passion, dedication, and commitment of Bac Si Ha to treat all who arrive either at clinic or the hotel. OR 2. The fact that he does it all day with a smile!!! I agree Andrew, I couldn't have stated it better!!!
