news from Nigeria

Deaconess Ibironke O. Oremade-Oworu is Conference Health Secretary, of the Methodist Church, Nigeria, in partnership with the Wesley Guild UK and the Trustees of the Nigeria Health Care Project. 

Recently, she visited several projects including:

* the Health and Restoration Center Agboke, Otukpo Benue State
* Bethesda
Methodist Hospital in a rural Area of Benue State Igede
Edawu Community Psychiatric Hospital, Igede

Below are some photos of the projects. Please remember Ibironke and her colleagues, health professionals and volunteers, and church partners, as together they bring hope and healing to people in very remote and rural parts of Nigeria.

Creator God, as a worldwide diaconal community we join in solidarity with our brothers and sister in Africa. We believe that together, through the power of love, revealed in the death and resurrection of Jesus, resentment can be transformed into reconciliation, war into peace, and sickness into health. Awaken within us the power of your Spirit. May we learn to live in solidarity, and come to believe in the transforming power of your love. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
