Asked to help establish a child health project in West Africa, Mary Ellen Edmunds soon found that she had as much to learn as she did to teach. In this delightful talk on CD, she shares heart-touching stories of her experiences. The insights she gained will open your heart and mind to a foreign culture made familiar by the influence of the Spirit.
I love this. My mind is in the process of reflecting on a task as a fill-in teacher for the Sunday school gospel doctrine class lesson 12 2013 D&C course - Gathering my people theme. Soon after getting into listening to Mary's experiences with our family in Africa I felt a little bit of how the early LDS pioneers may have lived in certain ways and responding to minds being awakened to truth & clouds of darkness removed. It is good to step out of a so-called first world country and step into a second-world country and see through our Savior's eyes. Speaking more generally, I am grateful for the audiobook formatting.
