Betsy met the Dalai Who?Posted: January 23, 2006
At the conclusion of Operation Smileâ€™s October 2004 mission in Himachal Pradesh, India, the team had the opportunity to meet and talk with the Dalai Lama at his residence. After Mission Coordinator Betsy Shenk showed the Dalai Lama pictures of patients whose lives have been changed by Operation Smile, he complimented the team on their efforts.
My initial reaction was something like, “Holy ****! Betsy met the Dalai Lama!” However, upon further reflection I’ve come to the conclusion that the most shocking thing about this is not that she met the Dalai Lama, but that it took her so long to do so. Keep up the good work, Betsy!
