A post-resident physician with Samaritan’s Purse, and pediatrician, just sent this pic from Hôpital Baptiste Biblique in Togo, West Africa. She chose to give the children a customized version of the hygiene coloring books.
Look how carefully he colored the page…
The physician saw the need for educational yet fun materials to keep the children busy in a productive way. She chose to give the children a customized version of the hygiene coloring books.
She asked us to change the text to both French and Ewe, so books were available to the children in each language, in addition to English. Then, she added the salvation message to the back page. This way, any adult who may be reading to the child can share the gospel message.

Thanks to Kim Kargbo and Women of Hope International, a new book is available to help share the gospel in areas of Africa. Kim shared the text of a parable about the sacrifice of a village chief for a project we created for her a few years ago. She’s used this story in West Africa to present the gospel.
Has anyone called you a “loser” or made you feel low for your weaknesses? I hope not, but imagine the answer for many of you may be a sad “yes.”
Many women in Sierra Leone who are missing an arm, are blind or have leprosy are often told by their society that God hates them so He purposely cursed them with a disability. They live on the streets, in the darkness of despair and worthlessness.
Women of Hope International works to turn around that message, bringing – as their name says – hope.
After one year, with a break to focus on Ebola education, an amazing, 50-page, professionally illustrated training manual is complete.
This month, WOH executive director Kim Kargbo and her team are in Sierra Leone using this JAMSBooks designed and illustrated training manual to bring a message of education, dignity and divine love to these ladies.
