Newsletters, envelopes, stamps, oh my!

Boxes are overwhelming the Mission Doctors office this week.
Each summer we send out a print newsletter to all of our supporters and friends.  The newsletter is filled with stories from the missions, upcoming events and news from our office.  We are especially excited about a couple of the patients stories included this year.  We get to hear from our doctors about their service in general, but rarely do we get to hear about individual patients.
Would you like to receive one of these 2011 Mission Doctors Newsletters?

You can contact our office to sign up to get one in the mail.

Yesterday, families around the country gathered in backyards celebrating the fourth of July, Independence Day in the United States. As for me, I spent my holiday with family sharing stories, eating veggie burgers and watching my nieces and nephew's  children grow right before my eyes.  We are blessed in this country with rights few are afforded around the world.  
When I sit down and reflect on Freedom, I am often reminded of a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt, "Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility."  We are  blessed with this freedom and with it comes the responsibility to care for others.  I feel fortunate to work with Mission Doctors, doctors who are willing to leave their practices and the comforts of home to care for patients a world away.  It is only with our freedom that we are able to care for the world.
What is your favorite quote about freedom?  How did you spend your holiday celebrating our freedom?
