Pressed Passion from Prescence

Just in case you didn't know, my name is Patricia Jones and I lived in Liberia, West Africa for 4 1/2 years. I was present to see the travesties of the collateral damage from years of civil war. I was present to see indigenous desperately fleeing from surrounding areas in search of refuge. I was present to see the psychological trauma that these travesties leave behind. I was present to see the undeserved and marginalized being forgotten. I help build the first university in southeast Liberia. I taught trauma counseling and conflict mediation to hundreds of paraprofessionals and traumatized individuals. I developed, implemented, taught and graduated the first ever students with a Bachelors Degree in Guidance and Counseling. I hugged babies and dug ditches with the natives. We cried together, and I cried alone because for as much as I did, I could never do enough. The experience pressed a passion in me because I was present to see it.
Once again my passion to serve for God, is pressing me to go to Kenya. And once again I say I can never do enough, and I CANNOT do it without you. I need your support, but mostly I need your PRAYERS.
