The Lord knows how long serving Him through Hospice care has been on my mind. With the death of my brother, my volunteer experiences at home, medical missions abroad, visit to the sick, the special formation I was fortunate to receive through the Iraya Study Center in the Philippines, and the two years it took me to build a life back home in California, I'm finally at a good time in my life to commit to this. I've been on their mailing list since 2008, but this weekend I finally completed their Heart Touch Method training for the terminally-ill and marginalized human beings, and received my Hospice assignment today. Every single person I met this weekend touched my soul and I cannot express the gratitude and joy I feel. It's been an great end to my Spring Break, but I know this is only the beginning of something that will change my life forever and hopefully make a difference in someone else's life who will be moving on to the next.
