Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. Ephesians 3:12 (NLT)

Greetings in the name of the One who gives us access!!!

In just a little while, by His grace, we will be boarding a plane to begin our return to Liberia. Much has been done in preparation for school to start.  We look forward to hitting the ground running as this first school year gets started.  Other ministries and challenges will be in front of us so we are very grateful we can come to the Father through faith in Christ for His strength, direction, encouragement and purpose confidently.

Daniel, Tommy, Ojuku, Nathan, Eric, Ruth, Yvonne, Marthaline, Alvin, Sundaygaa, Janjay, Titus, John, Raymond and Old man Kweh.  These names may mean nothing to you but to us they are the feet on the ground for the day to day operations of the school, the clinic, the agriculture program and everything necessary to keep the ministry moving forward.  Some are nurses.  Some are watchman.  Some are involved in construction.  Some make sure things are maintained. Some are involved in agriculture and grounds keeping. Some take care of the preparation for what’s next.  They need your prayers.  This couldn’t be done without them!  We are grateful God has allowed us to be in their lives and they in ours!
Classrooms have been painted inside and out with few exceptions.
Handmade desks ready to be varnished!
The bulk of the preparation is completed but there are still odds and ends needing completion. The team on the ground has worked hard to get things ready in the administrative, physical and spiritual arena.  We are excited to be able to see all the results and help in their completion.  Again, we are so grateful for this team.

Things fall apart.  We will meet a well pump that needs repair or replacement.  We will be putting in place new batteries for the electricity, not the ones we had hoped for but the ones we could afford.  We will address the thievery of the crops from the demonstration plot so as not to discourage the agricultural crew.  We will continue to look for ways to encourage the churches in their outreach.

As funding comes in, we will be digging the foundation for an administration building.  This building will house a registration area, several offices, and a teacher’s workstation and supply area.

There is still a great deal to do and your involvement has made it possible. With your prayers and support we will be able to keep moving forward in this ministry that God may be glorified.  Thank you so very much!! Glad to serve.
Because of His great love!!
