We regret to report that one of those who died in the earthquake in Haiti was missionary pediatrician Zilda Arns Neuman, who we featured in Something Beyond Greatness.

She responded “no, I am not the most important woman in Brazil, but rather the most loved.” Learn more about her extraordinary life here.
