At Trinity Academy, we are very proud of our graduates and the things they go on to accomplish after leaving our school. Rebecca Kolbeck, a member of the class of 2014, graduated from the University of Dallas in 2018 and is currently studying at the Liberty University College of Osteopathic-Medicine. This past June, she joined a group of 73 other students on a medical mission trip to Guatemala; here is her testimony about the trip.
“In early June, 2019, I went with a team of 73 other medical students, clinicians, faculty and staff from Liberty University on a medical mission trip to Guatemala. We provided healthcare, health education, and prayerful support for over 800 patients in the small villages of Zacapa and Chiquimula. Most of these patients were very poor and had limited access to clean water. My team paired with clinicians and medical students from the local Guatemalan villages to care for patients, teach patients about their medical conditions, and educate the community about preventative medicine. Throughout the week, I learned about both the Guatemalan culture and medical system, and was humbled to see people living in such poverty. I look forward to my next medical mission trip, and encourage others to consider mission work!”
