Out of 41 years of marriage, this mission trip to Ethiopia became the first mission that shared together with Dr. Samuel Yoon who began his 3 years medical mission in Ethiopia sent by MyungSung Church. I met students, Basileel (Adama univ. civil engineering 3rd), Berekat (Architectual 4th in Addis Ababa Univ.), and Benjamin (Music School). They are receiving scholarship from the government.
M. Priscilla Jeong (M. Noah Jeong’s wife) suddenly developed the symptoms
of headache, vomiting and paralysis on left hand and left foot on 11/5 due to
brain hemorrhage (Subarachnoid hemorrhage). They had the first operation on
11/7 for 5 hours to decompress the brain. She has low platelet count and
because of that, it was hard to stop the bleeding. We are praying her platelet
count may be normal. God may bless the hands of surgeons, and she may
get well soon.

The city has held numberless prestigious international conferences. The University of Cape Town Hospital conducted the world’s first heart transplant.
