HHA Trip 2019: Day One
A mission team has arrived in Jos, Nigeria! We are a group of nine, including several from Jacksonville Hearing and Balance Institute (JHBI). Our day began at the Sheraton Hotel in Abuja where we enjoyed a delicious breakfast alongside Pastor Ukubu, President of the Christian Association of Nigeria; David Young, Deputy Chief of Mission; and Stuart Symington, US Ambassador. How powerful it was for our team to get to hear from these amazing men. We admire their hearts for this country’s people and were moved by their contagious passion. What a perfect way to begin our trip as we seek to love, care for and provide hearing help to this city.
After breakfast, we made a drive down to Jos. We snapped photos and took in the beauty and culture of Nigeria. Now safely settled into the Baptist Guest House, we are anticipating with excitement what this week will hold.
