Incorporating vignettes, interviews, and excerpts from letters, A Drop in the Bucket: The Joys, Sorrows, and Horrors of Medical Missions recounts the selfless acts performed by author and nurse Dolores Edwards with her surgeon husband, Robert. There is such a great call for these medical missionaries' assistance, first in Colombia and later in Iraq, that they cannot fill every need-what they accomplish is just a drop in the bucket. But as they diligently work to help others, the couple must remember that each drop or need they meet serves to fill the bucket. Whether it be a dangerous middle-of-the-night escape from Colombian guerillas or performing medical treatments in a Kurdish refugee camp in northern Iraq, God works through Dolores and Robert Edwards to help many people; and for them it is a joy to see His handiwork. A Drop in the Bucket will hold you spellbound as you read about the frustrations and joys Edwards and her husband experience during their thirty years in the field of medical missions.
