Alyssa Santos, a 2004 graduate of Lake Stevens High School is in her first year of medical school with hopes of eventually becoming an Emergency Room physician.

As part of the Christian Medical and Dental Associations (CDMA) she has traveled quite a distance to attend many of their conferences. 

This summer she will be going on a medical mission trip to Nicaragua,  the second poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, where over half of all Nicaraguans live beneath the poverty line. 

Her mission group will be holding a clinic in a rural school and while attending to the physical, medical and dental needs of the population, they will also team with two dozen area evangelical churches and local pastors in sharing both the love of Christ and God’s Word to the Nicaraguan people.

Santos still needs to come up with $1,200 to cover the costs of the trip, excluding her airline ticket.
CMDA is a member of EFCA and is a non-profit organization.

To donate or to find out specifics on this trip, go to www.cmda.org, then go to “Missions” and then click on “Global Health Outreach calendar”, then click on trip to Nicaragua, June 19-27.
