Dr. Erin

How many of you can say that your doctor left their birthday party because your water broke, slept on your couch while you were beginning labor, delivered your baby on their birthday, and then came over the next day to clean your floor and vacuum your rug??  I CAN!!

Erin Meier is a family practice doctor who works here at the hospital AND she is a huge blessing in our lives, especially Miles's.  In fact, she was the second person to know about Miles's existence...yep, after I took a pregnancy test just for fun (I'd never taken one before and was curious), and then took another one because the first one looked pretty positive...I ran over to Erin's house (in disbelief) to ask her just how accurate these flimsy little pregnancy tests were (she assurred me they were pretty accurate). After that, Jordan, Erin, and I made a couple top secret night trips to the hospital to do some ultrasounds, to take a look at the little nugget, before we could share the news with everyone.  Erin was also the first to recognize that Miles was a boy!

It's truly our privilege and pleasure (except when she beats us mercilessly at Settlers of Catan) to serve with Erin here in Kudjip, Papua New Guinea!  She has taught us a lot about what it means to selflessly and generously serve others in the name of Jesus!
