Nazareth House Kabala School teacher: Abubakarr Fofonah

I have just received word from James in Freetown that Abubakarr, one of our teachers at the Nazareth House Kabala School is very ill. They are thinking he may need surgery for a ruptured hernia, he has high fever, infection. Please keep him in your prayers and pray strength for the other teachers as they tend to their students in their overflowing classrooms and as they fill in for Abubakarr and his students.

We have sent the teachers salaries and the school's supply money for the month. There is a small amount that we can adjust and give aid to Abu for his illness. Whatever it takes, we must help him out. He is so valuable to the school.

Maria Stianchie has received confirmation that the container filled with supplies for Sierra Leone from One Love Foundation is indeed aboard ship and traveling to Sierra Leone. Fantastic News!!!
