INSPIRING STORY OF THE WEEK
THE HONDURAN ODYSSEY
by Adrienne Drake, MD
This inspiring story began when Adrienne was a medical resident at the Mayo Clinic. At 31 years of age, she felt called to lead a medical mission. That is when she and several college students traveled to a small village in Honduras. While she knew this trip would be quite a challenge, she was ill-prepared for what greeted her there. Surrounded by poverty like she had never witnessed before, she saw diseases she had only studied in textbooks. Adrienne herself even became ill with intestinal parasites. This trip to the tiny village of Chachahuala touched Adrienne in ways she could never have imagined.
If you want a true adventure story, read how this two-week sojourn led to Adrienne’s personal transformation. Although this mission happened over forty years ago, her memories will last for her lifetime. She will remember the humble and generous villagers she met and cared for forever more.
