What did Dr. Stephen Sengbe Redmon do in Sierra Leone in November & December 2020?
Great question! I prayerfully listened to the Holy Spirit and here are just a few blessings included:
- Started a daily running program in Hamilton village & provided running shoes and equipment to all participants
- Donated school supplies to local Sengbe Pieh elementary school (Hamilton village)
- Led daily daily zoom wellness program
- Weekly fitness program on Lumley Beach
- Provided seed funds & school supplies to start an elementary school in a small village named Junhun
- Did a national training briefing for top Sierra Leone Police
- Initiated purchase of beachfront property in the Black Johnson area for future development of a health & wellness retreat center
- Completed application for dual citizenship
- Discussed historical/sociological research projects with Dr. J. D. Ali (Chairman of History Department at Forah Bay College)
- Ceremonially honored as a paramount chief in Telu, Bongor (Chiefdom where I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in 1980-81)
- Attended two Muslim/Christian funerals
- Attended three church services at Jordan West African Methodist Church in Freetown
- Spent 5 days at Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary Eco-resort
- Sponsored ten Sierra Leonean men ages 10-40 for a 4 hour nature hike with a Ranger Guide through protected national forests
- Listened to the Holy Spirit by being in the right place at right time with the right protective equipment to use CPR to revive and save the life of a man named Muhammed Bah who was struck down by a truck. I visited the hospital treating Mr. Bah daily for 7 days and made appropriate donations to ensure that he received the urgent and proper care he needed.
Most importantly, I proactively and mindfully served others and strengthened relationships with Sierra Leoneans for ongoing collaboration.
This is a partial list of the miracles and blessings over the last 40 days in Sierra Leone. I look forward to the May 2021 service retreat to Sierra Leone.
All praise be to God.
