• Students help those in need during summer of service

    Nick Deere in RwandaHow did you spend your summer? For many Baylor students, the answer to that question is “helping others.”

    * Over 160 students visited AIDS clinics, installed hydro-electric generators, tutored children and shared the Gospel on Baylor-sponsored mission trips across the globe this summer. Baylor Magazine compiled this powerful series of journal entries and reflections on the trip from some of the students who went.

    * More recently, students and faculty from Baylor’s Louise Herrington School of Nursing spent a week in Mexico this summer, providing free health services to nearly 1,000 patients in need. The team provided general and women’s health care, plus eye and dental assistance and even free medications.

    * In a related note, nursing school graduate Rose Nanyonga was profiled by a leading Ugandan media outlet. Nanyonga overcame an incredible series of obstacles growing up in Uganda and earned her master’s from Baylor in 2005. She has since returned to her homeland and is director of clinical operations at the International Hospital Kampala there.

    An important part of Baylor 2012 and the school’s mission is “to educate men and women for worldwide leadership and service.” What an excellent way for this to be put into practice!

    Sic ’em, Baylor students with servant hearts!
