Sharing the stories of nurses involved in missions is not a new occurrence for WMU®. After 30 years of active nursing practice and experience as a missionary nurse, I believe strongly in the valuable access to people and needs a nurse can provide for almost any missions setting. I especially love to tell the stories of nurses who paved the way for many of us today by their vision and commitment to bringing the healing touch of Jesus to those they served.
