Through medical missions and other volunteer work, Dr. Dawn Obrecht shares part of her life story and the lessons she learned while giving to others. Whether in the devastation of a tsunami, the aftermath of Katrina or in the jungles of Brazil, the very people Dr. Obrecht went to help in turn taught her so much about life, about living, about the value of relationship. Journey with the Doctor as she shares the insights from these wonderful people and gives a perspective on life that few have known. Experience the drama, the humor, the tears and the joy of traveling around the world to help others through medical missions. And in the process...you will discover more about yourself, your purpose and maybe even embark on your own volunteer trip to serve the poor of the world.

5202 |a Mission Possible takes the reader to many exotic locations throughout the Third World, Honduras, Ecuador, Bolivia, Viet Nam, Brazil, Indonesia, and Louisiana for Hurricane Katrina, where medical care is the exception, not the rule. The stories are fascinating, the human suffering unspeakable. The author's deeply personal journey of spiritual growth beginning with the pain of alcoholic parents, through her own addiction and finally to a place of healing and peace in recovery are also revealed.
