Why is it important to Go Near?
Haley Jones shares:
“My favorite part of the Go Near mission trip was taking care of babies at Happy Life. It was normal to have 20 or more babies lying on the floor on a blanket and only 1 or 2 ladies caring for them. These babies need more. I loved getting to care for them. Before returning to the US, we searched throughout Nairobi for cloth diapers that they used. We finally bought diapers and creams to leave with them as a gift. We had no idea when we arrived that day, they had nothing and were using rags to put on the babies. The ladies working there kept thanking us and immediately were praising God for his provision and care. They were sincerely overjoyed that the babies had what they needed. We experienced God move on their behalf.
I am grateful for the opportunity to have had this Go Near experience. I now know that I have a specific purpose for my nursing career. I want to work with babies and be consistent in one place to return as a medical missionary.
