Lutherans To Raise US$100k For Curran Hospital
By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, July 19 (LINA) – The Trinity Lutheran Parish in Fanti Town, Central Matadi Community has launched a 30-day rally to help raise US$100,000 to help prevent the closure of the Curran Lutheran Hospital in Zorzor, Lofa County.

The hospital is the second biggest referral health facility owned and operated by the Lutheran Church of Liberia (LCL).

Performing the launching ceremony during the church’s regular worship service Sunday, Head Pastor Rev. Bartholomew B. Colley pleaded with members of the church to generously contribute to “a life-saving initiative of the church.”

He said as mandated by the Executive Council of the LCL, Lutheran congregations being a missionary body, are to help save the body’s second referral health facility from closure by responding to its call.

Colley explained that the hospital is gradually running out of nearly everything it needs to operate due to the lack of funding, noting that it needs the support of every Lutheran, government and well-wishers of the church.

Colley has, at the same time, stressed that Liberia needs Christian leaders who will say no to corruption in line with religious principles set forth by God.

He made the observation Sunday in his sermon titled: “Purpose of the Christian mission”.

Rev. Colley wants all Christians, including the Christian President, lawmakers and Judges to beware of their purpose and mission which is to tell the good news of Christ, resisting all societal ills.

He described a Christian mission as one that is organized, clear and decisive, adding, “This is the way a Christian nation should operate, rather than enacting a law that will declare the country as a Christian state that could lead to chaos and the destruction of lives and property.”

He wants Christians to live exemplary lives that will encourage people to follow Christ.
