My heart is filled with eternal gratitude for my family here in the U.S.A, Germany, and in Ghana along with all the friends, parishioners, benefactors who made the medical Mission to Nkonya-Wurupong a reality. The deserving accolades belong to the doctors, families, and friends who saw the Medical Mission through to its success.

Lastly, for all of you who donated meds, treasure, time, and prayer I hope God grants you a prophet’s reward for helping to care for the less fortunate - a people half a world away.
