From a missionary kid in rural, war-torn northern China to high school in Pyongyang, medical training in the United States, and a vocation dedicated to medical mission in Taiwan, this memoir chronicles both the difficulties and rewards of building and expanding Mennonite Christian Hospital into a large, modern, state-of-the art regional teaching hospital of renown.  Read how the Browns nurtured three adopted children and boxer dogs, and learn about Sophie’s role in administering the growth of the New Dawn Educare Center for mentally-challenged persons.  For his work in providing medical care for the marginalized aborigines and the advancement of medical practice in Taiwan, Dr. Brown received special recognition from the Taiwan government and the city of Hualien.  As you read about the compassionate ministry in the name of Christ to “the least of these,” you will  pick up details of surgical procedures from the stories of patients treated by Dr. Brown.  This memoir is not only an intriguing missionary saga, but serves as a valuable historical record for Mennonite Christian Hospital.  For Taiwan mission alumni this is a must read, and those engaged in medical missions will find it informative and inspirational.  — Sheldon Sawatsky, Ph.D., Taiwan missionary colleague of the Browns, and former Director for East Asia, Mennonite Mission Network
