“This is my covenant with you.” —Gen. 17:4

Medical Officer, Malawi

This project funds the sending and support costs for a medical officer to work with the Synod of Livingstonia of the Church of Central African Presbyterian. Dr. Martha Sommers is one of two doctors at Ekwendeni Hospital in Malawi, serving a large rural area in a country where 25 percent of the population is HIV positive and one in five children don't live to see their fifth birthday. "I've grown so much by journeying with Malawian friends," says Martha, "and thank God for how they have picked me up when I have tripped, made sure I was not alone with illness, and taught me to enter into grief and grab joy."
