In 1928, British Methodist missionaries founded Maua Methodist Hospital (MMH) in Maua, Kenya--about a five-hour drive northeast of Nairobi. As the only full-service hospital in the region, today this 275-bed facility serves a population of 700,000. My husband, Bill, and I are United Methodist missionaries assigned to the hospital. Bill provides technical support, and I work with quality management. For many reasons, we are thankful to be part of the ministry here. Mindful of Matthew 25:35-40, the hospital seeks to serve Jesus by caring for neighbors in need.

While I am happy to be connected to so many friends and family through social media, I fear my round-the-clock digital connectedness is distracting me from a deeper relationship with the people in my life and with God.
