The Work Continues

Dear readers,

The Jericho Road team has returned safely from a three week medical mission trip to Sierra Leone working in the Adama Martha Memorial Community Health Center (AMMCHC). It was a blessed and productive time. We were able to provide maternal health training, nursing care training, and other basic training to the motivated AMMCHC staff. They are already doing great work there, seeing around 80 patient's per day. 

We also helped restart the village outreach to three of our target villages. The villages we visited were Tombodu, Kangama, and Tefaya. The need for basic medical care in these rural places in Kono is great. This was the first time we visited the villages in over a year due to the Ebola crisis. The roads were tough and the days were long but we knew it was where God wanted us. 

Despite what the people of Sierra Leone have been through over the past year, they were welcoming and friendly. They received our help with open arms and embraced us as one of them. We went with the mindset to serve in any way possible (and we did) but we also were served by them. Our purpose was to teach but they taught us as well. We gave them our best and they didn't hold back in giving to us. It was seamless and pure the way we all worked together. This reminded us about the beauty of the body of Christ working together to serve, edify and give to one another. 

There is a lot that needs to be done still in regards to teaching and training. We are committed to investing in the staff at AMMCHC and to bringing the best medical care possible to this area of Sierra Leone. In doing so, we are providing hope and being the hands and feet of Jesus where it is needed most.

Thank you for reading.
