Senior Med Lab Tech Kathy Shearon at work

Hello!  My name is Kathy and I am a born and raised Minnesotan who currently finds herself in Africa.   I am a Medical Lab Scientist who has a passion for traveling and humanitarian/development work.  I have gone on 4 short term mission trips with an organization that is close to my heart: Mercy Ships.  I am embarking on a longer stint with Mercy Ships and will be serving with them a full year.  Where are we heading next?  We are off to Cameroon on the Western coast of Africa.  Come along for all the adventures and miss-adventures that are bound to happen and see all the Lord is doing in this area of the world.
