Why I go on Cleft Lip and Palate Medical Missions

The other day I found an old interview that I did where I was  asked  the reasons I go to Africa, Central and South America to perform surgeries on those that don't have access to medical care. I look forward to returning to my mission work in the near future while being accompanied by DrMonica Pena, a newly minted Pediatrician and Savannah Rose Pena a junior in Medical school.

Most of the mission surgeries are performed on Children with Cleft lip and Cleft palate. These mission trips have included trips to Guatemala, Mexico, Brazil, Burkina Faso, and Uganda. Two previous "purely medical" (Non-surgical) mission to Kingston, Jamaica actually began my mission career!
