We met Courtney and Steve prior to their starting the Pearl House, so we already had a deep respect for them both as fellow Christians as well as friends. The story of how Courtney was truly compelled by God to begin a girls home in Africa touched our hearts and we trusted what was being done was God’s will.
After visiting the girls in Ghana last April, we gained an appreciation for how much this mission is needed and how well it is working. The Pearls are all amazing girls who are so appreciative of everything, who obviously love God and who truly want to change the world in their community for the better after receiving this gift.
While giving the tithe at your local church is good, it often fails to allow us to see firsthand what God does with our giving. Giving even a small amount beyond the tithe for a specific cause such as the Pearl House enables one to see very personally how God changes lives. We give to the Pearl House in general but also to specifically sponsor one young lady who we consider our daughter abroad and keep in touch by letters after our visit. She is wonderful and an added gift from God…all possible because of the Pearl house and its mission and purpose.

Education, training and experience are the three hallmarks that define a surgeon’s credentials. These components along with ‘demonstrated competence’ is what the American Medical Association recommends when evaluating new or accomplished surgeons for hospital privileges even above board certification.
