Global Missions Healthcare Conference 2016
Dave Muhovich
   This photo was taken on the steps of Jay and
Angelica Saunders’ home from South East Chris-
tian Church in Louisville, Kentucky. The Saun-
ders’ hosted 15 people from Bethel to attend the
Global Missions Healthcare Conference (GMHC)
2016 last November. Debbie Solomon (took the
photo) and Diane Dahl were also with us. Bethel
administration, admissions, nursing, and the
P.A. program were all represented. GMHC is the
world’s largest healthcare mission conference and
this was the 5th time a group from the Nursing
program attended. Over 100 mission agencies
were represented and there were 2200 persons
attending the conference. We plan to attend again
in November 2017. Join us! •
