Wegayhu dreamed on this rock as a child... 

Demeke Getahun is a Pastor in the Ethiopian Evangelical Church in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. 

And now she has returned to Ethiopia to fulfill her dream. Wegayhu Ketema was born in Ethiopia and used to wait for school on this rock. She would watch the nurses head to work and vow that she would become a nurse one day. After moving to America with her husband, she did became a nurse, as well as raising three children and working tirelessly to organize a medical clinic in her hometown. The Siloam Clinic provides the poorest of the poor with free, high-quality medical treatment. Wegayhu plans to open more clinics throughout Ethiopia.
