“Conner’s servant heart is evident throughout this intriguing and educational firsthand look at the challenges of being a medical missionary.” - BlueInk Review

“The Face of Hunger: Reflections on a Famine in Ethiopia” (ReadersMagnet; 2018) by Dr. Byron Conner presents the author’s gripping personal account of the 1983-1985 famine in the Horn of Africa country of Ethiopia, where he spent three years serving as a missionary doctor.
Dr. Conner first learned about the Ethiopian famine during one sleepless night in 1984. While surfing TV channels, he stumbled upon a late-night infomercial portraying images of starving Ethiopian children.
The author, who was employed by the U.S. Public Health Service in Earlimart, California that time, was so moved by the victims’ plight that he offered himself as a missionary to the Seventh-day Adventist Church. He would then move with his family to the famine-stricken country and assume the role as the “health and temperance director” for the Ethiopian Union Mission.
Dr. Conner experienced situations that were truly devastating and heart-breaking. He grappled with hopelessness and depression at times but persevered in his mission to help the famine victims whenever he could, especially in the face of starvation and infectious diseases.
“The Face of Hunger” has been well-received by readers who called the book “a lesson in compassion and self-sacrifice,” that paints a vivid picture of the famine in Ethiopia and of the underdeveloped world, in general. BlueInk Review calls Dr. Conner’s narrative compelling and, highlights the author’s perseverance and zeal to serve the poorest of the poor in Ethiopia.
