Medical Mission in Ethiopia: More Lessons in God’s Grace
Workshop » Global Mission Sites and Partners
Chi Y. Chung, MD, FACS
God does amazing and perplexing things when He calls us to Kingdom service. Building upon my workshop from GMMA 2018, I will tell inspiring stories of God's provision for my missionary service in Ethiopia with the Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons (PAACS), i.e. how I was called to leave my practice, raise funds, and stop worrying about my children. I will also share tough situations from cross-cultural differences and major illness that equally taught me about God’s grace. Please bring your questions for the Q&A session at the end.
