Perhaps the only thing more incredible than the true story of faith that is told in FACING DARKNESS is the ongoing story of faith that Samaritan’s Purse lives out each day in locations around the world.
A recent article on the ministry’s website details how doctor’s serving with Samaritan’s Purse helped young patients in Liberia.
“God used the skilled hands, compassionate hugs, and professional expertise of our cleft lip and palate medical team to bring new smiles to dozens of adults and children in Liberia during the first week of December.”
The surgeries were conducted at ELWA Hospital, the newly reconstructed hospital that is prominently featured in FACING DARKNESS. The old ELWA served as the hub of the compassionate care offered by the Samaritan’s Purse medical team during the Ebola crisis.
And it still is serving the needs of the people of Liberia.
“‘It’s remarkable to recognize that this couldn’t have happened in our old hospital,’ said Dr. John Fankhauser, chief executive officer of ELWA Hospital. The new hospital has twice as many beds as the old one and now offers three operating rooms instead of just one.”
And you can experience how the Samaritan’s Purse team served as the hands and feet of Jesus amidst Ebola when FACING DARKNESS is in theaters for a special one-night event on Thursday, March 30.
