In March, Sister Susanne Hartung, Mission Integration Officer for Shared Services, Providence St. Joseph Health, made a mission trip to Retalhuleu in Guatemala with Faith in Practice: Life Changing Medical Mission.

On the first morning there, she shared a reflection on God’s healing love with the 49-member surgical team. “As we meet the patients and their loved ones for the first time we bless them,” Sister Susanne wrote. “They have traveled hours from their villages for surgery, no doubt waiting years for care. I am privileged to pray with the patients before and after surgery. Their gratitude is beyond description.” And she added: “I told the team my going was honoring the women of 175 of the Sisters of Providence and they too were following the mission of the Sisters.”
