"My family and I were privileged to live in Belize and serve at Presbyterian Medical Clinic for eight years. It was the experience of a lifetime to be able to spend so much time providing medical care for the gentle people of Belize. It was a time of spiritual growth, as I saw the Lord answer our prayers again and again, providing what we needed to accomplish the mission. I got to know the patients well, and saw many come to Christ or deepen their faith. My medical skills as a family physician greatly expanded, as I saw a broad spectrum of conditions and learned to do a lot without the help of specialists. The clinic itself was well equipped for primary care, and had expanded capabilities, such as dental and gynecology. The staff of the clinic, which was largely Belizean, were so helpful and supportive. It was a great place for our family of four children to grow up, and each of our kids came back speaking very good Spanish and having a global perspective on life. I recommend Presbyterian Medical Clinic as a great place for any health care provider to get a taste of missions on a short term trip, or to dive into long term missions."
