I became a nurse to help those in need (specifically cross-culturally). When this all (COVID 19) started happening I felt led to look into options for coming to help. Missions is wherever you are. It looks different for everyone. I can say this for sure. Although I felt crazy stepping forward I am where I'm supposed to be and it was no mistake.
