With newness comes a beautiful feeling of hope.

New equipment, new procedures, new everything; this is the first, fresh, new mission to Basra, and everyone is excited about what's ahead. There's no doubt that challenges are coming. There will be valleys, to be sure. But this week is a peak that we're going to celebrate.

So take a minute to watch and then share this video with your friends. We hope you'll be drawn in to this 30 year-long dream that is just beginning to come true and that you'll stick with us for all the videos—both happy and sad—as we work alongside the doctors of Basra.

More to come...
