We want to thank Pastor Billy Gotcher of Trinity Baptist Church in Williston, VT for sending us information that a sonogram machine was available for donation.
Through their information, ORH was able to contact Jericho Road Community Health Center in Buffalo, NY. This center operates to help the indigent, refugee, and poor of the community with health care, education, and spiritual help to honor Jesus Christ. This NGO helps many thousands each year very much like a rescue mission would.
The center also has a mission in Serra Leone, Africa, which seeks to accomplish the same mission. The center in Serra Leone also has many young ladies wishing to be trained in nursing. Many years ago ORH started a second mission which follows the old teaching, “teach a man to fish, rather than giving him a fish.” This was done by preparing teaching DVD’s that can be used in countries which might not have enough or any nursing training programs. The Serra Leone clinic is our pilot program for this new phase of ministry with the Emergency Room skill-sets being taught.
We received this communication from Patrick Mellody, purchasing manager for Jericho Road. Phebian in the greeting is the director of the Serra Leone clinic.
“Phebian and Jan, I have the two Nurse training DVD video packets that arrived here in Buffalo. I gave them to Paul Violanti to personally carry down to Sierra Leone in March. Jan, Thank you for this great effort to get these videos done for us and your desire to help Sierra Leone , lives will be saved and many locals that desire to be Nurses will have a dream come true and allow them to help others and prosper! God bless you all! Patrick Mellody.”
If this program of teaching works according to our hopes, it could open the doors of many countries to the work of ORH.
Again, thank you so much Pastor Gotcher for being willing to help ORH.
