In this episode, Andrea Burke talks with Dr. Ethan Helm, pediatrician, and missionary to Cameroon and Cambodia. Ethan shares his own personal story of facing cancer, as well as what it's like to care for the dying and hurting in different countries and cultures.
Ethan Helm is a pediatrician and his wife Elizabeth (also a physician) previously served at Mbingo Baptist Hospital in Cameroon with Samaritan's Purse. They now serve in Phnom Penh, Cambodia with Christian Health Service Corps. Currently both Ethan and Elizabeth are studying the Khmer language, while Ethan volunteers at Hebron Hospital, and Liz homeschools their children. When he is in the States, he occasionally works at Genesis Pediatrics, in Rochester, NY. Ethan and Elizabeth have 4 kids. Ethan likes games, sports, laughter, and being ridiculous, and Ethan loves his church, Grace Road, excessively. He often tells people when he thinks of his church it's like cotton candy and unicorns. Also, Ethan is not sure the last sentence is a sentence, but he's from Arkansas, so he's okay with it.
