Donations Help Liberia

In last month’s Herald, we shared a letter about the dire situation in Liberia. Our Missions Team has agreed to send $3,110 for the purchase of rice and other vital foods.  We have requested that the guards receive two bags of rice each, as they have been so faithful in protecting the property around Ganta Hospital and the Nursing School.  These funds are being pulled from the GIC fund which is supported through the faithful generosity of our congregation.  If anyone would like to contribute to this endeavor, they may make a contribution to the GIC fund.

Clinton Zeantoe, Dean of the College of Health Sciences, and our primary partner in Liberia, responded to the recent donation with a note saying, "Thanks to FUMC Peoria for feeding the School of Nursing and others in Ganta."
