The McCropder Wish List

We are anticipating that one of our primary ministries outside of patient care will be to the medical students of Hope Africa University as they rotate at Kibuye Hope Hospital.  We hope to be able to mentor them professionally, but also to be involved in their spiritual growth and development.  We are eager to host Bible study groups, dinners, and informal fun activities to encourage and disciple them while they receive training at Kibuye.  We also anticipate hosting other large groups such as nursing students, government officials, and visitors from the U.S.  

Certain items would be very useful to facilitate hosting these students (and other groups of people that come to visit the hospital).  These are some things that we would like to acquire and put on a shipping container to be sent to Burundi.  This container will need to be packed and ready by August 2012.   

We have linked certain items to a product available online so that you have an idea of what we’re looking for.  If you’re able to find one of these items at a garage sale (in good condition) or have anything on the list that you’re willing to donate, that is most welcome.  Please remember we want these items to last for a long time, so quality is important.
