Perla comes from the Northern Desert of Chile where her parents, Raul & Edith Diaz, pastor a Foursquare church. She has two brothers and two beautiful nieces. Perla recently graduated from a five year nursing program at UNAP (University Arturo Prat) and has since worked primarily in Emergency and Surgical medicines. She has always had a desire to help people in need and has reserved a special place in her heart for children from around the world. One of her childhood dreams was to be a part of a medical missions team, and after hearing about the earthquake in Haiti, God opened the doors for her to be here with us. She adds to the team a beautiful spirit, a willingness to serve and a heart to teach the people of Haiti.
