How Albert Schweitzer Inspired a Young Man's Journey

Against the Current

In May 2014, the authors Clarinda Higgins and William Armstrong went to Gabon, Africa, to trace the footsteps of Mark Higgins as part of the research for this book. Clarinda brought along her two adult children Emily Lutringer and Eric Lutringer. They saw the old Albert Schweitzer Hospital at which Mark worked, and then visited some of the remote villages in which Mark lived as part of a cardiological research team. The trip was not only an eye-opening experience, but also produced a wonderful surprise!

This special video composed by Emily shows the beauty of the experience.
