Egbe Hospital Mission Trips

As our family heads to Egbe in August we are excited and praying for who God will bring along with us. Currently there are 3 Samaritans Purse workers on site helping with the revitalization. This part of the project will be complete in March of 2014. Lenny and I will be assisting the Egbe team with the management of the compound, overseeing ongoing projects, hospital maintenance, coordinating short term teams and helping new missionaries transition into Egbe living.

2We are very excited about the opportunity to help the Egbe missionary community grow. Key positions are a Family Physician, General Surgeon, Administrator (general manager type), Medical Director and Head Nurse.  Right now the priority is getting a family medical physician that can provide leadership to the Nigerian Resident doctors and improve patient care. Egbe hospital is also in need of a Ophthalmologist, Pharmacist and additional Physcians/Medical Practitioners.

World Medical Missions Egbe HospitalWe are proud that Egbe Hospital is a part of the World Medical Mission. Short term medical trips and 2 year post-residency programs are available. If medical is not your field but construction is, there are still several opportunities for short term construction trips through Samaritans Purse. If you feel God has been leading you to missions and any of these opportunities seem interesting, please let us know so we can get you more information. If God has been calling you to missions and you don’t see anything above that fits your skills, let us know as the Egbe community has more needs then what is listed above.

We are praying for you, whoever you are! We are waiting for you to say “Here am I, Send me.” Isaiah 6:8.

    Patrice and Lenny, Hi again! You do such a great job with updates. I’m so excited for you. I’m especially happy to see that you have the “team spirit” Dave and I admire in many of our SIM colleagues. You understand that it’s more than about you and your family…you’re looking out, already, for the interests of the Egbe team of Nigerians and ex-pats, and you’re holding out an invitation for others to join you in what God’s doing there. Well done! May God speak clearly to someone within your circle of influence and friendship, and may they gladly give an Isaiah response. Let me know if there’s anything I can do to encourage you in these last weeks. We are still in Kenya until July 31st but will be back in the Philly area after August 1st. GOD BLESS YOU LOTS, and your SWEET KIDS as well! ~ Sheryl
