Roger and Melanie Reiners have been and remain among the greatest supporters of the needy of Sierra Leone, and particularly of the Lowell and Ruth Gess UMC Hospital in Kissy, in the outskirts of Freetown, the capital city. Dr. Lowell Gess, a specialist in eye surgery, and Ruth were missionaries for two decades in Sierra Leone. In January, at age 93, Dr. Gess left his comfortable home in the U.S. for yet another stint in Sierra Leone. His explanation included this thought: I'm going because Sierra Leoneans feel abandoned. Just being there will be an encouragement.
Now word has arrived back from Dr. Gess via The Reiners. I reprint their email with permission.
