Iowa Ethiopia starts where Barker’s first play about Arlene Schuiteman, Sioux Center Sudan, ended. The sequel follows Schuiteman, a missionary nurse, from 1966 to 1977 as she helped open a “dresser school” in the city of Mettu, teaching wound care and other medical skills to Ethiopian health care workers. During those years, Schuiteman also witnessed a spiritual revival that swept through the country—a revival that touched her personally and resulted in surprising gifts of the Holy Spirit in her own life.

The Drama Ministries Ensemble will perform at churches and schools in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, including Mekane Yesus Seminary. Both Iowa Ethiopia and Sioux Center Sudan are also books by Barker. Copies of Iowa Ethiopia will be available after the performance.
