Walking Close to Death with Dr. Ethan Helm

In this episode, Andrea Burke talks with Dr. Ethan Helm, pediatrician, and missionary to Cameroon and Cambodia. Ethan shares his own personal story of facing cancer, as well as what it's like to care for the dying and hurting in different countries and cultures. Ethan Helm is a pediatrician and his wife Elizabeth (also a physician) previously served at Mbingo Baptist Hospital in Cameroon with Samaritan's Purse.  They now serve in Phnom Penh, Cambodia with Christian Health Service Corps.  Currently both Ethan and Elizabeth are studying the Khmer language, while Ethan volunteers at Hebron Hospital, and Liz homeschools their children.  When he is in the States, he occasionally works at Genesis Pediatrics, in Rochester, NY.  Ethan and Elizabeth have 4 kids.  Ethan likes games, sports, laughter, and being ridiculous, and Ethan loves his church, Grace Road, excessively.  He often tells people when he thinks of his church it's like cotton candy and unicorns.  Also, Ethan is not sure the last sentence is a sentence, but he's from Arkansas, so he's okay with it.

Influencers aplenty, memes a dime a dozen, self-help books lining the shelves of bookstores, and YouTube tutorials for every tip under the sun and it’s still never enough. Why do the messages like “You're the hero of your story” and “Trust yourself” still lead to anxiety, fear, uncertainty, and despair for most women? Andrea Burke will sit down with a different guest each week to discuss things like mental health, beauty, women in the church, "toxic" relationships, Instagram influencers, and so much more. We invite a guest each week to talk about big cultural issues and what the Bible has to say to those things. We know in Christ we truly are good enough for this never enough world.
