Dear family, friends and colleagues,
In early March I will be making my 4th medical mission trip to Liberia with the Hands of Hope Mission Team.  This will be my second trip since the end of the Ebola epidemic, an epidemic which ravaged the medical capabilities of a country already lacking in medical resources.  In my 35+ years as a laboratory professional, the work we have done is Liberia has been some of the most meaningful and impactful in my career.  I am blessed to have formerly worked for an organization that supported this mission work, and that I now work for an organization that took care of patients suffering from Ebola during the epidemic in 2014.  I am excited that I have an opportunity to return to Liberia and serve in an area that has only minimal medical resources.  Liberia has fewer than 60 physcians for a country of  4 million people.  I will be working in the laboratory at the Weala Medical Clinic.  A team of 20 medical practioners, mostly from Illinois, will be joined by local physicians and nurses in Liberia to provide critical medical and surgical services at the clinic.  In addition to taking care of patients we will be providing outreach to medical professionals in the form of teaching and mentoring at several healthcare facilities in the area.

About Hands of Hope
Hands of Hope Foundation
is heading out for its 9th Liberian Outreach from March 7-18 in Liberia, West Africa. The Hands of Hope Foundation is about Offering Hope in Christ according to 1 Peter 3:15 by striving to be ambassadors of Christ in both word and deed. The foundation is not just an organization coming from the outside to help, but we are also Hands of Hope Foundation Liberia, a Liberian NGO “Non-Governmental Organization”, partnering to help our brothers and sisters from inside Liberia. Since 2008, we have been assisting the Liberian people in restoring hope and recovering from 15 years of devastating civil war. Hands of Hope has been collaborating over the years with governmental leaders and partnering with the Liberia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church (LAC-UMC). Through the efforts of our Hands of Hope Foundation Liberia NGO and HOH National Director, Rev. Paye Cooper Mondolo, we continue to develop a strong ministry presence through the creation of the Weala Mission Station (WMS), partnership on church building, education endeavors, safe-drinking, clinic-medical and agricultural initiatives. 

Please take a moment to look at the videos in the 2 links below.
