Dr. James Ingvoldstad, Physician, Author is our first guest today, he will discuss Road Trip: One Doctor’s Call to Haiti is Dr. Jim’s story of his experiences with God and the Haitian people.

On January 10, 2010, a huge earthquake hit Haiti, devastating a portion of one of the world’s poorest nations. An American medical doctor there that day, on one of many trips he has made to Haiti, found himself one of the first medical professionals available to respond, and he moved to set up a MASH-style medical clinic outside under tents and treating the injured until trauma medical teams could arrive. It was just one of the adventures Dr. Jim Ingvoldstad has had in his years of service to Haiti.

When Dr. Jim began serving on short medical missions in Haiti he learned not only that he has gained more than he gave, but that risking change and stepping out and being vulnerable allows for growth and joy.

When the opportunity to serve came, viewed it as a way of giving back to others and fulfilling the call God had on his life. What he saw only later was that the adventure had the joy and risk of a road trip to the unknown. After almost 20 years and more than 30 trips to the same community in Haiti, he saw the radical change this had made in his own life as, among other things, he learned from the Haitian people the joy of living in the present, and of giving without expectation of anything in return.

Our first guest today is  Donald Greco, Author. Mr. Greco  has completed four of the five stories in his masterful series called The Youngstown Quintet. His latest book The Malandrine he will be discussing today.

The last, yet untitled, novel of the Quintet will be published within two years.  Greco’s stories are not the kinds of novels that are currently in vogue.  There are no spies, vampires, zombies, space aliens, super beings, or bodice rippers.  Instead, the Quintet consists of unrelated stories that are about ordinary people who lead extraordinary lives.  His readers are drawn into the stories by his wonderful characters and find themselves transported into the world in which the stories exist, all of them in Youngstown, Ohio, in various times of the 20th century.  And yet the pages seem to turn quickly as the characters lead each other through the novels.  His natural writing style is strong yet unadorned and an easy read.  And his characters come to life in the readers’ imaginations, sometimes seeming to jump off the pages as each story unwinds.  And finally, there are realistic and enchanting love stories that form the backbone of each of the novels in the Quintet. All four current novels of the Youngstown Quintet are available, both in book form and as Kindle editions, from Amazon.  Search them on Amazon by “Donald Greco” or “The Youngstown Quintet.”
