Preparing to Serve in Liberia

K800_IMG_5667

The people of Liberia have suffered through fourteen years of civil war.  In a country of 3 million, nearly a tenth of the population lost their lives and 800,000 were displaced as refugees.  Now in the midst of recovery, the Liberians have renewed hope.  We will be partnering with the local church to serve those in need.

John is joining the staff at ELWA hospital in Monrovia, caring for those who have lived through this difficult chapter.  He will be involved in establishing a Family Medicine residency program.  Beth will homeschool Rebekah and seek opportunities to serve in the healthcare, youth or orphanage ministries.  Bethany will use her passion for photography to help communicate the ministry at ELWA.   Josh will be our anchor in the States continuing his studies in physics.

In this country where so many have experienced such intense pain, the hope of the gospel is providing joy in place of despair.
