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 a 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!
