March 11 and March 18th: 

Lenten Series: South Sudan-Healthcare delivery in a conflict zone

 After the 10:15 service on March 11th, Dr. David Reed, MD will share his experiences as an emergency physician developing health-care access in a region that has been devastated by conflict.  South Sudan continues to suffer from civil war and inter-tribal violence.  Building healthcare access from nothing, what are the priorities and challenges when insecurity persists?

On March 18th, Dr. Reed will speak to the church-school youth about his experiences in South Sudan, his reflections on responding to a call to serve, and his personal journey sorting out how to do it the best way possible.

If you have the opportunity, recommended background Movie to watch: “The Good Lie”  a full length 2014 film, starring Reese Witherspoon and produced by Ron Howard, is available on Amazon Prime. It tells the story of the Lost Boys and Girls of South Sudan, and describes effectively the many challenges that still are present today.
