Ganta and the East Ohio Conference 3C's

Container Shipment News from Laurie Joyce
I just received an email from Luke at Brothers Brother Foundation and I want to share some good news. The Medwish container with dressing, wound care and medical supplies was unloaded at the Ganta Hospital this past Friday. Luke relates that it was a time of celebration.... God is good! A second Medwish container is ready for shipment this month to Liberia. It contains hospital equipment that Victor selected for the Ganta Hospital when he was here in October.
My journey since our 3-C's Mission Trip to Liberia last year has been amazing. I'm thankful for the vision of Bishop Hopkins and the hard work of the 3-C's Task Force to carry this vision forward. Many thanks to Victor and Zaye at Ganta for writing to me about their struggle to accomplish their infection control goals and helping their patients to heal. Thanks to Kathy for getting me in contact with Pat Ginley, who worked closely with Mimi and the folks at Medwish to make this happen. Lastly, I thank Luke at BBF for graciously working with the East Ohio Conference as we continue in mission with the people of Liberia.
Grace and Peace,

And now . . .
We are hear at Ganta now excited to see the items that Laurie is writing about. Another Med Wish container is due to arrive later this month, January 28th! Danny and a med student Brittany are working in the Out Patient Department and Lindsey another volunteer is doing physical therapy with the orthopedic department here at Ganta. We are coming full circle with our work with the 3C's! God is good!
