The Second Medical Mission Team Heads to Addis Ababa June 20

On Saturday, June 20 ten members from First Baptist Atlanta will leave for Addis Ababa. This will be the second team that will serve God in Dukem, Ethiopia at the Dukem Health Clinic.

Of the ten members of the Ethiopia 2009 team, Dawn-Marie Headley, Dottie Eleazer, Chika Oraka and Ingrid Forbes were members of the team that made the inaugural journey in December 2008. Danice Mariney, Kayenda Johnson, Diana Evans, and Efrim Moore are among the team members participating on their first missionary journey. Ethiopians Rahel and Hashim are also making their first missionary journey and are excited to finally have their prayers to serve Christ by serving their country.

The medical clinic being built by Source of Light Ministries International is not yet completed so the team will not be able to work in the new building. However, God has miraculously supplied a great deal more medicines including a few specific medicines for eye diseases/infections. The team will return to the Dukem Health Clinic to a staff and patients who have been waiting patiently for their return.
