Clinic Day 1

Clinic day 1 was a challenge as my team was still getting over the jet lag and had a lack of sleep. However, they made the best of a bad situation and came through wonderfully. We had two clinics and teams this day and they were busy days. Altogether, we were able to see around 400 people this day between the two clinics and really was able to see our teams come together and start working together cohesively.  

After clinic, we were able to have dinner at one of the favorite restaurant to have Hot Pot! We also had three birthdays that were happening during the trip and this was the night we decided to celebrate them. They were surprised making it a great night!

Clinic Day 3 

Day 3 we were a smooth running machine and had the opportunity to do three clinics this day to make an even greater impact. Our teams traveled to Tuntay, the outskirts of Yangon, and Dala which is one of the slums of Myanmar. The need was dire and the impact was great. The people just kept coming and it was a challenge to keep up with the crowds of people needing help. I'm proud to say we were able  to see a total of over 500 people this clinic day and was a great  way to end the trip.

We  finished the day with a surprise for the team a at a floating boat restaurant that has a full buffet with a cultural show while you eat. The show was great and the food was awesome! It was a joy to see the . smiles on the team members face after a job well done and seeing over 1,300 people in just three days!

Mercy Home Orphanage Education and Dental Clinic Visit 

We LOVE getting the opportunity to partner with one of the orphanages in Myanmar and to give back. This is one of the most favorite days for many as the children have a way of gripping your heart and making a great impact in the lives they touch. We were able to hear them sing beautifully and had the opportunity to do some education on proper oral hygiene, nutrition, and dehydration while our dental hygenist cleaned each of their teeth. Lastly, we had a chance to love on the kids some by playing some games and their beloved soccer! This was truly a great day!

The Great Wall of China

It was pure joy to be able to start our trip with a tour of The Great Wall of China! We had a long layover in Beijing and thought we would take full advantage to see on of the New Seven Wonders of the World! We had two awesome tour guides that gave us history and really allowed us to make the most of our time. They also set up an amazing buffet of authentic Chinese food that was delicious. Such a fun start to the beginning of the trip.

Rest & Relaxation in Bagan

Our time of relaxation in Bagan was much needed and filled with cultural insights. We were able to spend time in the World Heritage Site of Bagan and get to learn and explore many ancient temples. The morning started early with a hot air balloon ride over 2,000 ancient temples of Bagan at sunrise. This is always a highlight for so many on the trip and is such a serene and memorable experience. Afterwards we headed out of a tour of Bagan and its ancient temples. We began with some shopping at the local markets first and ended with some beautiful views and tours of temples. The team thoroughly enjoyed their time in Bagan.
