Phebe Hospital

Trinity supports Phebe Hospital

The Lutheran Church in Liberia, West Africa is well known for its health care ministries. Lutherans were the first denomination to build a hospital in Liberia. Phebe Hospital opened in 1921 and the Phebe School of Nursing was the first nursing school in the country. In spite of being attacked and looted, Phebe Hospital never stopped offering services during the civil war (1989 to 2003.) Trinity is a long time supporter of Phebe Hospital and takes up a special collection on Phebe Hospital Sunday each fall.

 

The Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Jerusalem and its co-pastors for the English speaking congregation, Martin and Angela Zimmann, are sponsored by Trinity.
