    Praise God for the life of Martha Palmquist (Fosse)! I first met Martha at Global Health Ministries (GHM) in February 1998. I was uncomfortable with sharing my faith at that time, and uncertain whether to accept a position at GHM as operations manager. Martha became a mentor, teacher, friend, and shared her faith and experience as a missionary and working alongside together in the warehouse that moved me greatly, and unlocked inside me a deep love for medical missions and the work of the Church around the world. Thank you Martha!
