Humanitarian and Nursing Student Lane Turbeville Joins AHMEN

My experiences from this past June served as yet another confirmation of the way I think we should be doing mission work in Honduras.  I will begin posting on these experiences next week.  First, however, the work of planning for the future never ceases.  There is always another team, and I must introduce you to a lady who might just be the catalyst for something huge in Honduras.  Please pray for and send Lane Turbeville a small donation towards her August team dues today.  And now...Lane's story..

Hi Everyone! 

My name is Lane. I am a senior nursing student and will graduate with my second bachelor’s degree in May! Over the past 6 months I have been working as a clinical assistant in the Emergency Department of a pediatric hospital and working at a restaurant to help fund my nursing education. To me, a true definition of service is a strong devotion to any community and the desire to contribute with lack of selfish goals or repercussions. My true passion is rooted in service to others and I try to live my life accordingly. 

When I first heard about AHMEN, I was amazed by the wonderful service initiatives taking place in Honduras. It has always been my dream to travel internationally and volunteer in healthcare. Much to my surprise, I then discovered AHMEN's August “Jungle Team” and the International Medical Seminar taking place in CiriboyaMy dreams were quickly coming true!  

Nursing school has taught me the value of a smile, kind words, and a helping hand. I hope to embrace those simple actions while in Honduras and apply all the knowledge I have learned in the past two years during my stay there. At the conference, I will be presenting on nursing school in the United States, as well as pediatric mental health treatment in the Emergency Room. In addition, I will be performing volunteer clinic work and documenting our whole trip through photographs and interviews. I cannot wait to make new friendships, help save lives, and bring lots of memories, stories, and photographs home to share with you!

August 9th is quickly approaching and there are still lots of preparations to be made and fundraising efforts to be completed. If you would like to pray for and/or make a donation toward my mission to serve in Honduras please contact me at laneptur@gmail.com.  

Together, we are the difference.
