Connection is playing a show this Friday at Northaven. We’re again raising money for a good cause: fighting the scourge of Ebola in Africa.
But this morning, the show became a little more poignant. Hours ago, Dr. Martin Salia died from Ebola in Nebraska. What you may not know is that he’d been working in Africa, at our United Methodist Kissy Hospital in Sierra Leone. Recently, Dr. Salia gave an interview about his sense of calling to minister to those in Sierra Leone’s poorest neighborhoods.
Friday’s show was already poignant, in that Dallas had been affected by Ebola. In part, we were pledging to fight Ebola in Africa as a way of remembering how we are now Ebola free. Now, we also remember the true sacrifice that those fighting Ebola, through the United Methodist Church and may other NGOs, truly make.
Come to enjoy the music. But also don’t forget the truly important cause.
Your presence Friday, and your gifts, will make a difference.
Show information here. See you Friday.
