This is an outstanding account of Jessica Alexander's experiences working with humanitarian aid agencies in several locations throughout the world. It is one of the books listed on the United Methodist Women Reading List for this year in the Education for Mission category.
As a young woman who had just graduated from college, she began working at an advertising agency based in New Your City. The death of her mother from lymphoma, five years after her diagnosis, spurred Ms. Alexander to search for a more meaningful life choice. Her work with humanitarian aid took her to Rwanda and North Darfur, among other locations, for a period of ten years.
A rainy week-end is ahead, perfect for more reading.:-)
