The first class of ophthalmology residents began their training the month the Lawrences moved to Ethiopia. In Sept, they graduated six of those residents, two of whom will return as faculty to St. Paul’s Hospital and the others will serve in hospitals hundreds of miles from Addis Ababa. As Scott mentored them, he was pleased to see how they matured in their capacity to care for patients in a severely under-resourced environment. He is thankful for growing partnerships with local churches through which they provide sight-restoring surgeries and spiritual ministry on a weekly basis.
