Preparing for the biggest move of our lives!

Dear Friends and Family,

It has been over a decade now that we have been talking about doing medical missions in some capacity, and we are now in the full throws of preparing our family for the biggest move of our lives!  As part of the Samaritan's Purse Post-Residency Program, Brian will be soon working alongside a mentor orthopedic surgeon for two years in Soddo, Ethiopia.  Soddo Christian Hospital serves over 30,000 patients per year, and currently only has one orthopedic surgeon for a region of about 5 million people.  The need is great, and we are answering God's call to go and love and serve the people of this southern region of Ethiopia. 

So many of you have been by our side through the journey we have been on, and we would be so honored to have you stand with us as we embark on this next adventure.  We are grateful for each of you and hope to have the chance to personally connect and share more of our heart for Ethiopia very soon!  In the meantime we have two videos below that show our heart for missions and Ethiopia.  

Please keep an eye out for upcoming communication and stay in touch with us at, and

With Love,

Brian, Autumn, Elisabeth, Abigail, John, and Alexandria Hodges
