Richard Hanson, left, First Congregational Church of Jamestown treasurer, is shown presenting a $1,500 check to Lindsay Carlson, right, church member, to help with her missionary trip to Arusha, Tanzania. Carlson completed her first year at the University of Buffalo School of Medical and Biomedical Sciences. While in Tanzania she will be volunteering in a medical clinic and/or hospital in urban and suburban Arusha for four weeks in the maternity wards where she will be able to apply her clinical knowledge and give quality health care to women and newborns. She hopes to further her education and experience while also making a difference for the the people of Arusha.
