JALAPA, MEXICO—Vida en Abundancia de México (VAM) is a civic organization, whose vision is “to be an organization recognized for honoring God, dignifying human beings, and providing high quality services that positively impact children and society in general.”
The areas VAM focuses on are health, education, nutrition and values.
I was blessed to get to work in each of these areas during my time in Mexico. I worked in health on Monday and Wednesday, education on Tuesday, nutrition on Thursday, and values on Saturday.
My time in health mostly consisted of observation, which gave me valuable insight into the daily life of a general practice doctor at a small hospital in Mexico. I helped by taking vital signs of some of the patients. In the health area, I got more practice taking vital signs; I learned how to treat many of the common ailments in Mexico; and I also learned how to treat every patient with Christlike compassion and love.
