 Reflection:

“I am grateful for this opportunity to learn and grow from the amazing people of Taiwan.  I have been touched by their goodness and their spirituality.  I have been touched and taught by the Holy Ghost each day in the hospital.  He has allowed me to feel a small portion of the love that he feels for each and every patient I have cared for in Taiwan.  I never expected that I would say, after being here just one week, that I am a changed person, but I truly think I am.  I hope I can bring that love, genuineness, and tenderness that I have been touched with here, to the people I serve back home.”
