A retired professor of nursing, volunteer missionary Edna Johnson came to Liberia nearly four years ago to support the nursing program of Curran Hospital. This hospital, a ministry of the Lutheran Church in Liberia, was destroyed during Liberia’s bloody civil war and is currently under reconstruction. Living in a remote region with no running water for three of these years and only hours hours of electricity a day, I asked, “How have you managed out here?”  Edna calmly replies, “In many times of my life I have known adventure.  At times, I have had fun. But out here, with the people of Liberia, I have found deep, deep joy.”
