In response to a request from St. John's young missionary- nurse, Susan Hantelman, stating the urgent need for surgical binders and masks, receiving blankets, and bandages in the church mission hospital in Eket, Nigeria, the Ladies' Aid voted to accept' the project and donate their time and talents to the cause. When completed, the articles will probably be packed in barrels and shipped by freight to the African hospital. They may take up to six months for the trip. Susan was until recently working as a nurse in the Eket Hospital, which is the largest Lutheran Hospital in Nigeria. She was there for seven months, and has written many interesting letters to her parents and friends in Fenton. Recently she and another nurse, Anne Voigt of Missouri, were sent to Ogoja Province, 300 miles north of Eket which is located on the southern coast. They are now engaged in a three- month language study of the Yala Dialect. Until this time, most of the people Susan was in contact with spoke English, which is the official language of the Nigerian government. However, there are 300 native dialects also used in Nigeria.
