“This is fun!” … a Selfie on day one

Today marks the first day seven pre-medical students stepped into another world – the world of Siloam.

These seven are participating in a six-week community health immersion.  The morning started early with breakfast and devotionals for Chelsea, Davies, Frances, Kenny, Lauren, Reinie, and Tucker.  Co-directors Caleb and Stewart round at the team.  They arrived at Siloam by 8:00 a.m. to be quickly dispersed among various roles helping with “Refugee Mondays.” One student called out, “This is Fun!”

While living in a predominantly refugee apartment complex in south Nashville, they will train refugee lay health workers to work in the community, they will shadow clinicians at Siloam, and explore a Biblical theology of health care.  Pay attention to the “fun” they will have as they come and see* what God has in store for them this summer.

*John 1:39, Holy Bible
