Long-time mission volunteer Joe Gomez has been providing his wisdom and guidance on “39 or 40” Austin Smiles trips. Joe translates, is an expert in logistics, and intuitively attends to the many details needed to make the mission run smoothly. We were all thrilled that Joe’s son, Anthony, was able to come on this mission, a great tribute to his father who has given so much to Austin Smiles.
