Pro-life partners in Liberia

Carolynn Sharp began her her missionary career in rural Brazil. Spending nearly 20 years in medical missions along the Amazon River, Carolynn was continually exposed to the plight of the unborn worldwide. 

In 2002 the Lord re-directed her vision to Liberia, West Africa. As post-war state, Liberia’s challenges include: high unemployment, poverty, broken family and social units, moral decay, and confusion from false spiritual teachers and non-biblical organizations. Abortions and maternal death rates are staggering. Very little value is placed on any life. 

Carolynn acts as the training coordinator and consultant at New Hope Pregnancy Center, which was established to protect the sanctity of human life. Together with the Liberian-born Executive Director, Aaron Kulah Garyemah, Carolynn uses compassionate medical care and abstinence teaching to open doors to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many of the abortion minded clients they reach attend their local church plants. While the country remains open, Carolynn and Aaron will continue to use the limitless opportunities put before them. Life Matters Worldwide will continue to support their efforts.

You can keep up with Carolynn through her blog. Recently, she posted a photo of property purchased for the construction of a building for New Hope Pregnancy Center. It will be exciting to follow their progress!

Meet Aaron Garyemah

Aaron Garyemah is the Executive Director of a medical clinic and the New Hope Pregnancy Center in Gbarnga, Liberia. He's been one of our international partners for many years. 

Both the medical clinic and the pregnancy center are dedicated to spreading the Gospel. The clinic serves around 60 people per day, and all services are very low cost or free of charge. 

The pregnancy center sees a lot of teenagers and is directed by the clinic midwife. They are currently in the process of constructing a new building for the center, which is 85 percent complete.

They also hope to build a maternity home to improve pregnancy outcomes for women from outlying areas. Women typically do not head for the clinic until they're in labor, and they travel by foot. Often they do not make it in time, and the mother and baby suffer or die. If they had a place to stay for about a month before giving birth, many lives would be saved.

Aaron is also heavily involved with orphanages and foster care ministries in Liberia. Please pray for this precious man, his family, and his dedicated team of workers.
