Rio de Agua Viva: Our Team Members, Dr. Ben Coplan

Today's Rio member blog comes to you via Dr. Tom Camp.  As you know, sometimes Dr. Camp get's excited about Honduras.  As Ben is one of his favorite people, Tom asked me if he could write about his buddy Ben.  Here is what he wrote!

Dr. Ben will also be reprising his role as dance instructor this year!

If any of you have spent any time with California Pediatrician Dr. Ben Coplan you know his love is for newborns and kids. Dr. Ben joined CHIMES for his early mission career, but AHMEN has recruited him for ourselves.

Dr. Ben’s forte is education of moms in Honduras. Again this year, he will be joining AHMEN’s Rio de Aqua Viva team in setting up a new AHMEN-SIFAT Workshop in Raista, La Mosquitia, Honduras.

One problem, Raista is not on the main electricity power grid for Honduras. After some research, Dr. Ben has decided one of the things he will be teaching/instructing is a system called: Kangaroo Mother Care.  Take a look at their web page, it is fascinating.

Join the Rio team today.  We are having a team meeting this Saturday at River of Living Water United Methodist Ministries in Jasper, Al from 10 AM - 12 PM.  We have many different ways of participating in the team both here and abroad.  Either role you and God decide, we need your help!

Together, we are the difference.
