Mission Trip Update


     Thank you, church family for all your prayers and support for my recent mission trip to Africa. I traveled to Liberia on behalf of a missionary couple named Paul and JoAnna Lehman, and delivered baby number six, Brendon Josiah on February 18. After that, I returned to Camphor, where I had served at the United Methodist Boarding School in 2012 and 2013. Mary Davis is the head of the OB Department and my “sister-in-Christ!” Together we provided two midwifery seminars, one at Kakata, and the other “in the bush” at John Dean Town. Between the two classes, we served about 50 women called TBA’s, “Traditional Birth Attendants,” and TTM’s, “Trained Traditional Midwives.” Many told us they had heard the words before, but had not received an opportunity to practice on the pregnant ladies or “big bellies.” One of the special joys was a lady named Tinker who was carrying twins! Another joy was to see old friends at Camphor and familiar faces. There were a number of improvements to the boys and girls’ dorms, new teachers quarters and a new fence around the clinic. Several of the teachers are upgrading their skills with a higher level of certification at the Community College in Buchanan. Please join with me in continuing prayer for the educational opportunities, the medical care, and the spiritual support provided by the UMC in Liberia.
