Missions Update: Karen Flowers

Our missionary in Egypt has some exciting news to share: Karen conducted the first Birth Guardian Training to certify trainees to teach childbirth classes. There were 5 ladies and one family practice doctor taking the training. The next step is a full Doula Certification Program for Birth Guardians.

Karen has been contacted by a doctor at the medical university that is part of Cairo University. This doctor oversees the childbirth education program there and is very interested in Karen’s work.

Karen continues to work on printing the curriculum for the Birth Guardian Training in hopes of having it in reproducible form next year. She is often with moms nonstop from the time labor starts until a few hours after the baby is born. Exciting but tiring. Please pray for ongoing strength and stamina as Karen pursues her natural childbirth education in Egypt.
