Victor Taryor, a GBGM missionary, will visit North Carolina churches March 3-17, 2014. Victor currently serves as a United Methodist missionary in Liberia, where he is the administrator of the Ganta United Methodist Hospital. He is a registered nurse by training and received a fellowship to train in public health at UNC-Chapel Hill.
God has blessed me so much in utilizing my career to alleviate suffering and to share the love of God in a meaningful way, says Victor.
The Ganta Hospital was virtually destroyed twice because of civil unrest in Liberia. Through the leadership of Victor Taryor and others, the hospital now serves as the main source of medical care for a large geographical area in north central Liberia. The hospital maintains clinics specializing in eye care, fistula repair for women, dental care, and many small village clinics in the surrounding area. Curamericas Global, another ministry supported by the NC Conference, recently worked with Ganta Hospital to reduce childbirth mortality.
The Liberia Annual Conference of the UMC recently approved funds to renovate Ganta Hospital. The Nursing School, operated by United Methodist University of Liberia, will be relocated. When the Ganta Hospital renovation is complete, patients will be better served.
