America is the land of prosperity. Medical coverage is in the palm of our hands and instant medical care is right around the block. Fresh water flows right under our cities and some don’t even know it. Our worst downfall is we are so ignorant to the growing number of people in the third world countries who have never even been able to imagine what the taste of clean water is like. Countries where malaria is common like a common cold to us and AIDS is everywhere. So given the question about if I could earn a living doing what I most love, I’d hands down choose to be a missionary doctor in a third world country. Missionary doctors are few but desperately needed. While in America, the number one cause of death is obesity and the number two is over-consumption of drugs, we don’t understand the millions of children and people dying all around us with diseases still unknown to man. I believe that the intense training of medical school can equip me to be able to reach out to people most in need of medical help. A missionary doctor may not be as highly paid as a doctor that works in America but I want to be able to earn enough scholarships to be able to at least go debt free. Being a missionary isn’t for everyone but when you support a missionary doctor, you play a huge part in each of the lives the doctor saves.
