Greetings to our blog friends and prayer partners!
It is hard to believe it is already Monday. Realizing that we have answered the call to our Lord and Savior to be in service to Him, we are calling ourselves Team Jesus. We attended devotional and staff updates at Mercy Hospital. Some of us completed rounds with Dr. Amara attending to 8 patients. A pregnant woman in labor arrived early Sunday morning. The labor did not progress as expected. Dr. Amara was called in and an emergency c-section was performed at 2:30 am. For this to happen, the anesthesiologist had to be picked up from home, other staff was called in and the maintenance coordinator, Mohammed, was called in to fire up the generator to provide enough power to be able to administer the anesthesia. All obstacles were overcome systematically and efficiently with the arrival of a big baby girl. Mom and baby are healthy and happy with plans to discharge home Wednesday. (insert photo). Other patients were evaluated, all doing well and progressing as expected.
One man checked himself out from the hospital in Freetown to transfer to Mercy Hospital in Bo where he preferred to receive his treatment. After a week of care at Mercy, he is feeling better, his vitals and symptoms are improved and he is expected to discharge home today. When we entered the room of our last patient, she immediately began praising God and Mercy hospital for improved health. She continued to tell Dr. Amara of her improved symptoms. Following evaluation, Dr. Amara agreed and she should be ready to discharge home today. It is evident that the Mercy staff is a well-oiled, professional caring team that works together to provide best patient care.

And He called His twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, heal every disease and every affliction. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. Matthew 10:1,8.
Mercy Hospital heals 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
For the love of His children,
