Many readers are following the articles about the rebuilding of a very rural hospital in Nigeria, West Africa where Don Campion grew up as a missionary kid. Since January, we have been recruiting volunteers and sending containers of medical equipment, vehicles, tools, and building materials.
A young couple from Colorado now lives there full-time as construction managers and the first missionary doctors will live there starting in January 2012. They will work together to improve the residences, the hospital wards, water and electricity supplies. The local community in the small town of Egbe is assisting wherever possible and is overwhelmed with joy that it is our desire to prepare the hospital for another 50 years of medical care, training and evangelism.
Working alongside Banyan is SIM (Serving in Mission – a protestant mission) and Samaritan’s Purse (a Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world).
If you’re up for a challenge, join us on one of our many trips.
