Going to Malawi with VIP and the medical team has absolutely changed my life forever. I can say first hand that the amount of love the Malawians have for each other and us is truly amazing. I now see why this country is called “the warm heart of Africa”. This trip had a few changes, but we always knew that God would provide and have a plan. With our trust in Him and each other, everything went way better than I could have ever expected. I made so many friends with both the American medical team and the Malawian staff members.
The Malawian translators were amazing at being our voices for the week. They were always willing to teach us their language (Chichewa) so that we could speak to the patients in the clinics. Seeing the smile on the faces of our patients when we spoke their language absolutely warmed my heart. The amount of impact this trip has had on my life cannot be put into words and I am truly grateful for VIP and the entire village community.
