Ever since a mission trip to New York in high school youth group that had a video series about missions in Africa, my sister and I longed for the day we could travel and help the cause. Christmas break of 2016 I began searching for mission trips to Africa and stumbled upon FIMRC's website. I found the SIHF and immediately began filling out the application just to check the availability. After a few days of prayer, they responded and told me there was room for me and my sister. The trip itself was amazing. We met some amazing people with whom we are still good friends who attended the fellowship with us, and connected with some amazing people in Uganda with whom I still talk to via Facebook. I learned more about healthcare and how to treat patients and gained valuable perspective about what we have (but may not really need) here in the US. I never felt that I was in danger in Uganda. The FIMRC staff were very accommodating and the local people were very nice. Every weekend we were able to take adventures around the area and see a lot of that part of the country. I would highly recommend the SIHF to anyone considering a career in international work or anyone with a desire to experience a different culture and become immersed in a different way of life.
