An unexpected turn of events brought me to San Fernando, in Pampanga Province. I am so lucky to have been here in the Philippines while my friend Brooke was preparing to head to her 43rd mission. As one of the documentation photographers, also known as PIT (Patient Imaging Technician), she spent her first year in India going from mission to mission there learning her trade, and is now one of the most widely traveled volunteers with Operation Smile. Through her, we made arrangements for me to stop in to see how her life had evolved, and the amazing work that the organization is able to do through the support of its donors and volunteers.
