Nancy Musgrave steps up to help build African hospital
Nancy Musgrave, a gifted and talented specialist, mother, and wife living in South Lake, Texas recently participated in the Global Room when Mercy Chidi, a social worker and activist working on the frontlines of AIDS, was our global guest. Mercy's tenacious spirit, humor, and humanity was contagious as she talked about her decision to build an AIDS relief operation in her hometown of Meru, Kenya. After 7 short years, she and her husband and their team successfully reach 13,000 orphans impacted by AIDS.
Nancy was moved. After the call she sat in her living room with her husband, Paul, to talk about the call - something had shifted inside of her. She wanted to meet Mercy.
In Nancy's words, "We need to see the spirit in everybody and now that we have decided to take our family to Kenya to meet Mercy, we will all be taking ourselves out of our comfort zones where we will have a chance to touch the sky – to see God. We are going so we can move our spirits to a higher ground." And not only are they traveling for their own growth, but to make a significant contribution. In July, her husband, Paul, will conduct a critically needed analysis of a new pediatric hospital constructed by Mercy's operation.
Without it, they can not move forward with their plans to help over 20,000 children in rural Africa. And it began with a conversation right here in the Global Room .
