Off again to Africa

March 7, 2011

Well, Ginnie & I are off again to Kenya. Amazing…our third international trip to Africa in less than two years. This time we’re off to Eldoret to check out the IU-Moi Program ( There is a neat consortium out there sponsored by the NHLBI ( run primarily by Duke. We are going out there with Dave Matthews (see the picture below), a general surgeon who has been instrumental in setting up the operative services at the Moi Teaching Referral Hospital (MTRH The hope is that they will be ready for cardiac surgeon (me) and a pediatric cardiologist (Ginnie) in about five years when we are done with training.

In the picture below you see Emily Matthews, Dave Matthews and Ginnie having a quick lunch before we board our first of four flights to Eldoret. I’ll try to post more in Detroit when we have a bit more of a layover. Noah and Esther are staying with the Caleb & Melissa again. What a blessing to have two great friends who are willing to take care of our kids to allow us to participate in this vision trip. It’s also a great blessing to have our sending church Faith praying for us and supporting us. More soon.
