Update on Dr. Mary

Dr. Mary is a doctor who for years has been working in a poverty-stricken region in Ethiopia, (the Wollaitta/Soddo area, for all you Ethiopia-adopt families).  Two of my daughters were born there, and last summer my parents and my sister worked there with Dr. Mary. For many years Dr. Mary has been providing for the medical and physical needs of the poorest of the poor in Ethiopia. Last year she was diagnosed with cancer, and was forced to take a break and come to America for treatment.   Yesterday was her final cancer treatment, and she hopes to return to Ethiopia in a month or so.   Joining her in her work will be my sister Sophie, who is a registered nurse.   You can read Sophie’s blog for more about Dr. Mary, as well as more about Sophie’s plans to work in Ethiopia for the next two years.  On April 20th and 21st I will be holding a fund-raiser for Sophie’s work in Ethiopia.  I hope that you will prayerfully consider supporting her work with struggling people.
