Reflections on a Famine in Ethiopia

BOOK SUMMARY

The Face of Hunger: Reflections on a Famine in Ethiopia by Byron Conner, M.D. is a significant memoir based on the years spent ministering to the Ethiopian people and the lasting effects that followed the author’s family home to the US.

BOOK REVIEWS

Dr. Conner does an admirable job reporting his experience during a crisis in Ethiopia 2 decades ago. With the power of media’s portrayals of an unknown country, Dr. Conner and his young family embarked on a mission that they will never forget. He speaks of the sickness he witnessed as well as his own physical and emotional ills that resulted from his efforts to help others in need. It is great that Dr. Conner was able to share his experience vividly although it occurred many years ago. The book comes full circle as he aborts his Ethiopian mission to return to America on a mission to heal the people in his own community. This lead to lifelong volunteering to improve the health of the community in Colorado. This book illustrates how a seed that is planted can keep growing in many ways and many directions.

BOOK REVIEWS

I’ve known Dr. Conner as a colleague in his Denver medical practice and found this book to reflect the humility, dignity, stamina and passion that he ever embodies in his care and concern for his patients as well as his community in general. No doubt those characteristics-deeply rooted in his person, his family, education, and church-were further strengthened by this early professional experience among those with the greatest of needs as deftly described in this outpouring of his service in Ethiopia.
