On Sunday, May 7th an Asbury Mission Brunch will be held to benefit Dr. Chris Hena, one of our long-time mission partners in Liberia. On April 8th, Dr. Hena’s home in Kakata Liberia was burned to the ground and everything inside was lost. We praise God that no one was injured and her medical clinic was not damaged. Please join us on Sunday, May 7th from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm in the Wesley Center as we help raise money to support Dr. Hena and her ministry. There is no charge for this brunch, but free-will donations are welcome. All money raised will be donated directly to Dr. Hena to help support her and her ministry.



Update in Kakata from Healthy Women, Healthy Liberia 4/10/17

This weekend we celebrated Palm Sunday and shouted "Hosanna, save us" with the crowds in Jerusalem.  It is with heavy hearts that we share with you that this past Saturday morning Dr. Chris's home in Kakata was burned to the ground and everything inside was lost.
 
Praise God, no one was home or injured!  Praise God for the wonderful people of Kakata who saved what they could.  Our board member Theo Kollie is in Liberia and shared with us that on Saturday morning friends, family and patients met at Dr. Chris’s yard to pray and worship to the Lord next to hear smoldering home.  This group recommitted themselves to our calling and vision in Kakata, to improve the health and welfare of the people of Liberia.   
 
As we approach this Holy Week we know that Jesus did not run from his future, he accepted it.  In his acceptance he answered our calls, "Hosanna, save us".  We look forward to the Easter story of Jesus resurrection.
 
As always, Dr. Chris's spirits are high.  Thank you for your prayers of support, phone calls and messages.  Please continue to keep her and our HWHL staff in your prayers this week.  We will continue to keep you posted on Dr. Chris’s needs and the status of our work.
