BC: The End

FC: Melissa Friesen | Togo, West Africa | May 6 to June 5, 2010

1: I have but one candle of life to burn, and I would rather burn it out in a land filled with darkness than in a land flooded with light.

2: Five Senior nursing students, two Cedarville University faculty, and I traveled to Togo for a four-week experience in nursing ministry, new people, unfamiliar cultures, and lots of fun. | Lindsey | Dr. Alyn | Dr. Baker | Melissa | Lauren | Tricia | Amy | Sarah

5: Baptist Bible Hospital (HBB) touches thousands of Togolese peoples' lives every year.

6: Baptist Bible Hospital: - Staffed by Togolese Christians and missionaries - 35 inpatient beds, 2 operating rooms, lab, radiology, pharmacy, and an outpatient clinic on the hospital grounds - Mobile Medical Clinics: screening for common illnesses and teaching health promotion along with evangelism in villages - Community Health Evangelism: Health teaching and evangelism by Togolese Christians to reach villages

7: HBB: Right side has inpatient wards; left side has surgery, labs, pharmacy, and radiology

8: Views from the road

9: Termite mound in front of the guest house where our team stayed

10: These are two of over 80 churches planted as a result of HBB's work in southern Togo. Some are small and simple...

11: ...and others are bigger...but in either setting nothing is comparable with worshiping the one true God alongside Togolese believers!

12: Wal-Mart (or as close as you'll get to it!)

13: Pounding fufu, a thick, pasty staple food made from boiled yam, served with spicy sauce

15: Market Day!

25: Hills near Mango

26: The wildlife of Togo... You won't find any zebras, lions, or giraffes!

27: There are over 600 species of birds in Togo!

29: The abudnant not-so-wild animals of Togo wander freely, especially on the roads, which makes driving even more challenging!

30: "In the vast plain to the north I have sometimes seen, in the morning sun, the smoke of a thousand villages where no missionary has ever been" — Robert Moffat, Missionary to Africa, 1816
