Please read below to hear about John's journey:

"In 2010 I was diagnosed with a rare illness called Amyloidosis, leaving me disabled and unable to work full time. After going into remission about three years ago, I sought to use my nursing skills to help those in need. I joined a ministry at the church I attend called the Medical Missions Ministry. We’re a group of licensed medical professionals who trabvle to other parts of the world to help those in need primary medical care. We also bring more than six months worth of medications and supplies. To do this, we individually raise our own funds and pay our own way for our trips.
Our trip to Jericho this year is from October 20th through the 29th. In Jericho, we treat refuges from local camps, many of them children, who have little to nothing upon which to survive. They live in extreme desert conditions and walk miles in extreme heat to come to our makeshift clinic. Our work is sustainable in that we go to the same places during the same time each year. We see the same people each time we go allowing us to follow up on those with chronic conditions such as hypertension and diabetes.
Your support is invaluable to me and I cannot do this without you."
