Since the start of the Revitalization Project, hundreds of volunteers from the USA, Canada, UK and the Egbe community have donated their time and administrative, maintenance, construction and medical skills to the project in the rural town of Egbe, Nigeria.
Our amazing volunteers have performed tasks that seemed too small to make a difference but instead have been a huge help. They’ve taught new skills, and brought new tools. They’ve filled the gaps for staff that are stretched thin. They’ve sewed into the life of the community. They’ve saved lives, ministering to physical and spiritual needs. They’ve formed lasting relationships – returning year after year. And they’ve brought joy offering mentorship; all the while being part of something much bigger than them.
Dianne, one of our recent volunteers puts it this way:
Although the Coronavirus pandemic has many around the globe re-evaluating missional service for the moment, consider how God can use you where you are. Join us in praying for and financially supporting the hospital and revitalization of the School of Nursing located within the Egbe Hospital complex.
Celebrate with us how ordinary people – together with the hospital, nursing school, and community – are making a huge difference in a rural region in Nigeria. We’d love to have you join us on one of our 2020 trips or serve for a 2 year term if you feel called to missions. Opportunities are available for Doctors – Nursing Educators – Administration – Construction – Maintenance – Hosting. Inquire with Robert Read at 954-491-3170
