Personal Reflection from David Robertson

First I wanted to say thanks to all of the people who supported me. I would not have been able to go had it not been for your generous support. This was my first opportunity to go on a medical missions trip that was related to physical therapy. I have always wanted to be a part of medical mission and I thank the Shalom Foundation and Belmont for helping us put this together. For the first time I saw poverty in a third world country. The people at the Shalom Foundation are true heroes and I thank them for letting us be a part of their ministry. Whether it was finally being able to communicate in Spanish, looking into the face of a pediatric patient, or helping to ease a lady’s neck pain, the experiences of this trip have left an indelible mark on me. Thank you to all of the students who went, and to the chaperones. It was a tremendous trip. May God bless both you and me and the people of Guatemala.

Matthew 25:34-40 Then the king will say to those on His right hand: Come, blessed of My father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me. Then the righteous will answer Him saying, Lord when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You? And the King will answer and say to them, Assuredly I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.
