I’ll let this young man represent the work in full swing in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso. My brother-in-law, Bertil Johansson, is heading up the building of a hospital. You can read all about it on this web site: www.westafricaaid.org.
Here is another man working on one of the walls. For me this is very interesting because it takes me back to the years when my father headed up the building of a Bible Institute. It looks just the same.
The walls have been going up and now they are ready to put in windows and doors.
In Bobo-Dioulasso there is only one hospital, with four operating rooms, to serve a population of two million! The church my sister and her husband planted thirty years ago, when they worked as missionaries in Burkina Faso, has asked them for help to build this hospital. Donations have come mostly from Sweden but also from the States, through the involvement of my brother Pepe.
When we were kids Ingrid and Pepe would talk about their plans to be doctors. Now both of these “doctors” are cooperating to see the hospital become a reality.
One day these children, and many more like them, will have a functional surgery-hospital when the need arises. Maybe you want to help! Go to www.westafricaaid.org
Soon, I hope to put some pictures of the finished hospital.
