Heading home!

We are back in Monrovia after two great weeks in Ganta, northern Liberia. Danny enjoyed running the pediatric ward at the Ganta United Methodist Hospital where he did real hospital medicine, saving babies. Danny also did weekly health talks for the staff. Kathy preached most mornings at staff devotions. She also sat in on a start up community based health program training.

This is a photo of Kathy with Marylou, an OPD nurse. They are standing in front of a mosaic cross and flame. The red shattered glass that was swept up from the chapel after the war. It had been a window in the old chapel and it was reclaimed and made into a piece of art. The red shattered glass is now the flame of the United Methodist cross.

Our time in Monrovia has been productive. We have met with Bishop Innis to discuss the possibilities of future plans and ministry in Liberia. The Bishop introduced us to THE President of Liberia, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. It was a great honor to meet her!

This is probably our last blog entry until we get home. Thanks for following us along the continent. We will be meeting with our Bishop to talk about what we may do next. Stay tuned!
