Sierra Leone

Lynn Pelton is the founder and president of Greatest Goal Ministries and was our speaker this past Wednesday, June 17. 
Just over a year ago, our club was working with Lynn Pelton to pull together a wheelchair project for Sierra Leone.  Then, the Ebola crisis hit and the project was put on hold. But, Lynn wasn't on hold.  Lynn, who is a nurse, went to Sierra Leone and worked for four months in an Ebola Treatment Center.  Lynn shared with us what it was like and the horrors the disease inflicted on families - killing many and leaving many children as orphans.  
Greatest Goal Ministries was founded by Lynn and is dedicated to serving the most vulnerable population of Sierra Leone, Africa - the amputees, disabled, and children affected by its decade-long (1991-2002) civil war.
