Born for a Purpose: A Memoir From the Horn of Africa

Ivan B. Leaman, M.D. with Mary Ellen Leaman

  • 1500

As a young couple, Dr. Ivan and Mary Ellen (Eby) Leaman accepted a call in medical missionary service in Somalia in the 1960s. By using the faithful and detailed weekly letters that Mary Ellen had written to her parents during these years the author pieced together their memoir. His humble, honest account of his and Mary Ellen's years among Somalis will stir the reader's heart for these beloved people and inspire others to the same kind of sacrificial service. The memoir takes you through the 1960s all the way to 2021. The author's proceeds from the sale of the book will go to Eastern Mennonite Missions. (284pp. color illus. Author, 2021.)
