Power of the Human Spirit

I have arrived!

As I flew here “Trouble with the curve” was playing. Although I have seen it before I was happy to view it again because I realized that it relates a lot to this trip. If you are unfamiliar with the movie, Clint Eastwood’s character could be described as someone who is VERY good at what he does. For a living, he scouts baseball players. However he is different than other scouts because he does it all by eye and ear rather uploading player stats. He is good at what he does because his talents for finding the right players are all based upon the connection he has with people. He gets to know everyone and hear their story.

It is the personal impact that he makes with each person he sees and meets that makes him good at what he does. I realized this is a lot like what I’m about to embark upon at the hospitals here in Lima.

This trip is going to be all about giving as much of myself as possible to the children here. Whether it be a smile, hand to hold, or a hug to share, each child will need something technology can’t EVER offer. As much as I love learning about the latest and greatest technology, I’m excited that the power of heart and soul can’t ever be topped.

      Whenever I hear about everything you do, I always wonder what more I could be doing. I know teaching makes a difference, but I’m always inspired to do so much more after hearing all of your stories. Can’t wait to hear more about your wonderful adventure. Those kids are so lucky to have you. Go Penpal!
