As a part of the Love for Liberia missional emphasis, a volunteer- in- mission work team from across the NC Annual Conference will be going to Liberia this summer, with the estimated dates of July 24 – August 5. Dates might change a day or two depending on availability of transportation. Passports are required. The work will be multi-varied and will allow participants to have a range of experiences helping the people at Ganta Station in Nimba County, Liberia. Participants will have the opportunity to help Liberian teachers conduct a summer day camp enrichment program for both the junior and senior high divisions. This camp will concentrate on math, English, general science, biology, chemistry, and physics. We hope to offer teacher training as well.
Another aspect of the team’s work will be medical. The Ganta Hospital would love to host physicians and nurses who would be willing to donate their time and expertise during this brief period of time. Work team members also will be given the opportunity to work with the Hospital and with Curamericas in several community health projects in their Nehnwanna Project. Among these projects is the building of wells and latrines alongside Liberian workers. There will be opportunities to accompany community health teams as they engage in other aspects of community health—including working with prenatal and post-natal women. Other related projects might include teaching medical staff computer skills and data entry.
Beyond this work is the most important work of all—formulating relationships with the Liberian people. We want to discover what it means to be a partner in missions. To do that, we need team members who are flexible and have a willingness to work hard. More than that we need team members with a willing heart who desire to let the Holy Spirit teach them about the sharing of love through word and deed.
The trip will cost about $3000 per participant. Registration deadline is May 1. If you have a desire to be a part of this team, please contact the Reverend Dr. Bill Haddock at 919.772.2042 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
