Good News!

Erik has returned from Ethiopia and we are so pleased that all of the Kijabe candidates who took the COSECSA exams passed.  Frehun, the pediatric surgery candidate, is the first person to successfully pass the exam for pediatric surgery!  We are so proud of his success and praise God for it!  He is now working in Ethiopia as he and Dan Poenaru begin a new BethanyKids site there.  We are so grateful for your prayers!

Trip to Ethiopia

Erik headed to Ethiopia today where a meeting of the College of Surgery of East Central and Southern Africa (COSECSA) is being held.  One of his pediatric surgery trainees, Frehun, will be taking his oral certifying exams there on Monday and Tuesday.  Erik is traveling with one of the general surgeons here and two of the general surgery trainees who will also be taking exams.  We would appreciate your prayers for safe travel and for Frehun and the two general surgery trainees as they takes these important exams.
