April 2019 End of Month Report

Our Weapons used in April:

  • 41 were baptized
  • 135 missions were sent out in 7 Counties
  • 156 villages, towns or cities were ministered in
  • 2 countries were ministered in; Liberia and Guinea 
  • 3 three-day regional trainings. Many are unable to attend our school so we send teams out to do trainings. 
  • 40 people attended our 2-week Wordsower Bible Institute class on our Zwedru base
  • 58 people attended our 1-week Wordsower Bible Institute class in Sinoe County 
  • 7 villages watched the Jesus Film
  • 18 dental patients were treated and 20 teeth were extracted. We have the only dentist in 6 counties. The Gospel is presented to every patient, many of which are Muslims.
  • 82 homes received water filters and we did filter follow-up visits in 189 homes in 19 villages and towns. Every home receiving a filter also receives the Gospel.
  • 14 students are in our adult literacy school
  • We have an hour radio broadcast every day. The broadcast presents the Gospel and teaches scripture. 
  • Hundreds of thousands of bibles have been distributed in over 1,000 villages. For those who are illiterate we have given away many audio Bibles on small memory chips, in their dialects, that can be used in phones and music players.

One of our powerful weapons is the Jesus Film. We have it in each of the 16 languages of Liberia. Wherever we show the film, the whole village will come to watch. Most have never seen a movie on a screen with a projector before, no one has seen many. Usually a movie has never been shown in their community. It is a big event. I’ve seen the film often, so I pray and watch the crowd while it plays. The children rush to sit close to the screen and when the scene of the serpent tempting Jesus flashes unexpectedly, filling the screen, I watch and chuckle as the kids scream and even run. The culture is different here. Because they are an oral society, they learn differently, so there is always much chatter, glee, gasps, clapping, and tears.  After the show, the elderly has come and asked, “I didn’t know Jesus knew my language.” Then it becomes my time for tears. They always invite us to return. When we show up in obedience there is always fruit to harvest.

When we go to a village, we will teach or preach a parable, scripture passage, or topic which gives a fragmented picture of the birth, life, sacrifice, resurrection, and ascension of Christ. The Jesus Film provides the complete presentation. We have shown the movie to thousands. Salvation and baptisms have come from it and is always a great success wherever we take it. Truly, the harvest is plentiful. The Jesus Film is one of our powerful weapons.









Beauty. A woman’s legs are an important part of her beauty in the entertainment kingdom. Well, beautiful legs are also important in our Lord’s Kingdom. “And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Rom 10:15. Below is a picture of 2 of our women disciples that go as they have been sent to preach the good news. Their legs \ have scars from motorbike muffler burns. Our Lord sees their beautiful legs. As our Lord lovingly washed His disciple’s feet on earth I wonder if He will wash ours in heaven.  I pray that if He does, then He will see the dirt and scars of sacrificial, obedient service and not the beauty of Hollywood. As He had tears on earth I wonder if He will have tears of gratitude in heaven. Let us look at these beautiful legs with tears of gratitude.



Participate with us in Praise and prayer:

  • Praise!! Two Muslim villages have accepted us to come and teach them. 
  • Praise!! Muslims have become Christian
  • Continue to pray for our first indigenous missionary team that has been sent to Capemount County. They are surrounded with three Muslim unreached tribes.
  • Our Lord says to pray for more harvesters to be sent into the field. Truly the harvest is plentiful and the workers few. Pray for more indigenous harvesters.  Pray that our Lord would send more Western missionaries  
  • Pray for the safety of our teams. There are many dangers lurking.

March 2019 End of Month Report

Our Weapons used in March:

  • 16 were baptized and 49 completed our Bible marking course.
  • Our first indigenous missionary team in Wacco village of Capemont County are boldly advancing. They ministered in 36 villages inhabited by 3 unreached Muslim tribes: the Vai, Gola, and Mandingo. They are also operating a grade school of 85 students
  • We sent teams on 64 missions to 120 villages and towns in 9 Counties
  • We did 6 three-day regional trainings. Many are unable to attend our school so we send teams out to do trainings.
  • We have an hour radio broadcast every day. The broadcast presents the Gospel and teaches scripture.
  • Our dentists treated 24 patients and extracted 30 teeth. We have the only dentist in 6 counties. The Gospel is presented to every patient, many of which are Muslims.
  • Hundreds of thousands of Bibles have been distributed in over 1,000 villages. For those who are illiterate we have given away many audio Bibles on small memory chips, in their dialects, that can be used in phones and music players.
  • 96 homes received water filters and we did filter follow-up visits to 184 homes in 16 villages/towns. Every home receiving a filter also receives the Gospel.
  • We showed the Jesus film in many villages to over a thousand people this month.
  • Our adult literacy team has 14 students.


We had 10 members of Woodside Church in Detroit come for a short-term mission trip. Wow, was it ever a mission adventure! It was divinely powerful, brutal, fruitful, and life changing. It was life changing for the team and those they ministered to. They showed the Jesus film to 4 villages of the unreached Muslims from the Gola and Vai tribes. They went where Wordsower Liberia has never gone before. They evangelized boldly and fearlessly from house to house in those villages producing fruit that will last for all eternity.

They ministered in the prison twice. In the Ivorian refugee camp they showed the Jesus film twice along with door to door evangelism. They ministered in Franzay, a village with a demonic stronghold. There they showed the Jesus film and met the demonic society’s resistance but overcame them. That night in Franzay was a significant breaking of the enemy’s stronghold. But knockouts require a one-two punch. The next day they returned to Franzay and went door to door evangelizing!!! Ahh! What joy to forcefully advance with fearless disciples!!! That same day they also went to another village to daub the house of the pastor of Gwenibo. Daubing is to pack mud in the walls of a building. Gwenibo was also once a demonic stronghold but now has a healthy worshiping community of believers with their own church building. We, His disciples, show up and always the strongholds fall, always!!!

Another mission was going to Jellue. We traveled for almost an hour, standing in the back of a pick-up truck, going deeper and deeper into the rain forest. Then we hiked another 2 hours on a small jungle trail crossing rivers on rotten log “bridges.” The welcoming was one for kings, receiving the very best they had. There we showed the Jesus film, slept on the dirt floor of a daubed church, and the next day hiked out carrying smoked monkey for the next day’s meal.

Their personal stories of our Lord’s hand on them, hardships, sufferings, but most importantly lasting fruit are many. Oh, was the trip brutal! But the brutality was against the generational strongholds of the enemy. You will hear their testimonies later.  

The team is David Bahbah, David Mills, Bob Murray, Steve Schlicker, Jan-Georg Van Der With, David Watts, Matt Waugh, Aaron Wood, Todd Wood, and Brian Wood. Below are some pictures from their trip.










Participate with us in Praise and prayer:
  • Praise!! We had a very successful short term mission team of 10 come 
  • Praise!! As we go back to neighboring Guinea.
  • Continue to pray for our first indigenous missionary team that has been sent to Capemount County. They are surrounded with 3 Muslim unreached tribes.
  • We have a team of 2 coming in May. They are coming to fix our broken printing press. Pray for this team. Pray they will bring the needed parts and be able to get the press running again.
  • In April we will be sending a permanent indigenous missionary team to Ivory Coast.  Pray as they go.  
  • Our Lord says to pray for more harvesters to be sent into the field.  Truly the harvest is plentiful and the workers few. Pray for more indigenous harvesters.  Pray that our Lord would send more Western missionaries  
  • Pray that our Lord will use us to train and send an army of Liberian warriors that will reach into the 393 unreached tribes of West Africa.  

100% of all donations go to the mission. None is used for administration. Tax-deductible receipts will be sent each January.

February 2019 End of Month Report


“From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it. Matt 11:12
Wordsower Liberia exists because our Lord has called and united a team of obedient disciples who have all sacrificed.  You are a part of the team by praying and participating financially.  Money you earn could have been spent on selfish desires, but instead was given towards an everlasting harvest. These who go on the bikes to the villages would not be able to do it without your participation.  The harvest is truly plentiful.  The workers are us; the united, the sacrificial, the faithful, the obedient. Let us continue to pray for even more laborers here in Liberia and supporters abroad.  I believe that as we unite, we will be utterly amazed, far beyond our dreams, at the harvest that will come from our obedient sacrifice. 
“The Lord has assigned to each his task. I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.  So, neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.  The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor. 1 Cor 3:5-7

You see our monthly reports, sometimes skimming them in haste of other things. You see the numbers. Numbers on paper create small effect. Below is a story from within one of those numbers. 
The team in the pictures below left their mission in Grand Bassa County at 3:00 in the afternoon to return to our base. They arrived at 9:00 in the morning. The following day they drove throughout the night for 18 hours on a bad road. They suffered, wrecked, bled, were bruised, were in danger, risked, slept for a few hours on the ground in a village, and returned rejoicing!!! Mission accomplished! The Gospel of Christ and His word of Salvation and hope was taught and preached!!!  For that, the team - you and I - joyfully sacrifice and greatly suffer.  You read in the report that we went on 86 missions to 139 villages, without knowing the cost.


Two bikes and four field leaders returning from mission
Notice the laughter and smiles
The wound you see in the picture is a burn caused by a bike wreak from the muffler laying on the leg.  The brutal treatment is to rub gasoline from the bike into the wound to stop infection and reduce swelling.  These are common, most of us have scars from muffler burns.
United, each team member doing their assigned task, forcefully advances the Gospel of our Lord.

I have been reading “Letters to the Church” by Francis Chan.  He says, 
We pursue Jesus, and suffering always accompanies Him. As believers, we spend our days pursuing Christ Himself, Christlikeness, and the mission of Christ, none of which can be done apart from suffering… As we are fixated on and obsessed with our pursuit of Jesus, we know suffering and persecution will come at us from all sides…Part of the reason we have created a culture of non-committal Christianity that avoids suffering is that we don’t treasure Him enough, we don’t love the lost enough.  We want Jesus, but there are limits to what we will sacrifice for Him, for His mission, for the lost.  We want Him, but there are also lots of other things we want in life…We are to fall in love with Him, to the point where it actually becomes a joy and desire to give our lives to Him in return.”

Paul said, “What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him… I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.” Phil 3:8-11.  “Paul was obsessed with knowing Jesus, he even wanted the fellowship of sharing in Christ’s sufferings… There’s a level of love we can reach where we actually grow to want that.  To want that type of intimacy, where you feel as if you were nailed right there next to Him.  You could lose everything - your reputation, comforts, possessions - and count that all a bunch of trash, because it is all worthless compared to knowing Christ.” *

Our Weapons used in February:
  • 3 were baptized
  • Our first indigenous missionary team in Wacco village of Capemont County are boldly advancing. They are surrounded by 3 unreached Muslim tribes, the Vai, Gola, and Mandingo. They went on 26 missions to 16 villages/towns and did one conference while teaching 80 students in the school they started.  Rest? Hardly!

Participate with us in Praise and prayer:
  • URGENT PRAYER REQUEST. 10 men from Woodside Bible Church are coming to spend 2 weeks with us. They will be going into four villages of the Muslim unreached Vai and Gola tribes to show the Jesus film and do evangelism.  Pray that our Lord will prepare the people to hear and receive the Gospel!!!
  • Our Lord says to pray for more harvesters to be sent into the field.  Truly the harvest is plentiful and the workers few. Pray for more indigenous harvesters.  Pray that our Lord would send more Western missionaries full time and for short term.  
  • Pray that our Lord will use us to train and send an army of Liberian warriors that will reach into the 393 unreached tribes of West Africa.  
  • Pray for our team now on mission in Ivory Coast, we are trying to lease property that will be used as a base.  Our primary goal is to train and send indigenous missionaries into the 36 unreached Muslim tribes of ivory Coast.

January 2019 End of Month Report

Our Mission has grown beyond the borders of Liberia. We are seeing that our Lord has had us cross into a new country again. This month, January, we sent our first team into neighboring Guinea. Guinea has 21 unreached tribes of 11,400,000 people, which is 86% of the population. The team was not well received initially but before leaving a couple houses of peace were established. We hope to have another team sent there soon. Wordsower Liberia has been training indigenous disciples for 10 years. We have been in well over 1,000 villages evangelizing, discipling, and starting churches and are now ready to go outside Liberia. 

Our Weapons used in January:

  • 10 were baptized
  • Our first indigenous missionary team in Wacco village of Capemont County are boldly advancing. They are surrounded by 3 unreached Muslim tribes: the Vai, Gola, and Mandingo. They have already been evangelizing in several Muslim villages. 
  • We sent teams on 38 missions to 94 villages and towns in 7 Counties
  • We did 1 three-day regional training that had attendees from 4 towns. Many are unable to attend our school so we send teams out to do trainings.
  • We have an hour radio broadcast every day. The broadcast presents the Gospel and teaches scripture.
  • Our dentists treated 12 patients and extracted 15 teeth. We have the only dentist in 6 counties. The Gospel is presented to every patient, many of which are Muslims.
  • In January, we acquired 3,000 Gideon pocket Bibles. Hundreds of thousands of bibles have been distributed in over 1,000 villages. For those who are illiterate we have given away many audio Bibles on small memory chips, in their dialects, that can be used in phones and music players.
  • 89 homes received water filters and we did filter follow-up visits in 330 homes in 27 villages and towns. Every home receiving a filter also receives the Gospel.
  • Our adult literacy team has started new classes and has 14 students.


Our first satellite Wordsower Bible Institute class was held the bordering Nimba County. This one-week class was attended by 27 students. We have several options for our discipleship trainings:

  • Teams going from village to village which usually last a day,
  • Sending teams to do a 2-3 day conference,
  • A team can do a 1-week Bible Institute satellite class, or
  • A 2-week Wordsower Bible Institute class located on our base.

Flexibility and variety allows us to reach every county, resulting in thousands receiving training.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8. Our leaders are active ministers in their communities, our Jerusalem.  Our field leaders go on missions throughout Liberia, our Judea. Our in-country, resident missionaries go to the unreached tribes of Liberia, our Samaria. We have also sent teams into Ivory Coast, Guinea and Nigeria on short term trips, but we have yet to send long term Liberian missionaries out of Liberia. Pray with us that next year we will have long term Liberian missionaries in countries outside Liberia, the ends of the earth.   

For fun! Over the net I have seen much snow and cold in the USA. You have used much de-icer. Well, here it is hard to go below 70. You use de-icer, I use a de-licer.


Participate with us in Praise and prayer:

  • Praise!! Ana DeCarvalho and her son Thomas are with us here in Liberia. They are members of Woodside Bible Church in Michigan. They will be sending you a report of their trip in a couple weeks
  • Praise!! We have entered neighboring Guinea.
  • Continue to pray for our first indigenous missionary team that has been sent to Capemount County. They are surrounded with three Muslim unreached tribes.
  • Our Lord says to pray for more harvesters to be sent into the field. Truly the harvest is plentiful and the workers few. Pray for more indigenous harvesters. Pray that our Lord would send more Western missionaries  
  • Pray that our Lord will use us to train and send an army of Liberian warriors that will reach into the 393 unreached tribes of West Africa.

December 2018 End of Month Report


Our Mission has grown beyond the boarders of Liberia. In 2019, Lord willing, we will have a base established in Ivory Coast and will have established a new fighting force in Nigeria. It takes many weapons to fight and win a war. Wordsower has many weapons:

Our Weapons used in December:
In Liberia: 
  • We baptized 43!!!
  • Our first indigenous missionary team has moved to Wacco village of Capemont County. They are in the heart of 3 unreached Muslim tribes: the Vai, Gola, and Mandingo.
  • We sent teams on 51 missions to 53 villages/towns in 7 different Counties.
  • We did 9 three-day trainings in 5 counties. Many are unable to attend our school so we send teams out to do trainings.
  • We have an hour radio broadcast every day. The broadcast presents the Gospel and teaches scripture.
  • Our dentist treated 16 patients and extracted 19 teeth. We have the only dentist in 6 counties. The Gospel is presented to every patient, many of which are Muslims.
  • We have distributed hundreds of thousands of bibles in over a 1,000 villages. For those who are illiterate we have given away many audio Bibles on small memory chips, in their dialects, which can be used in phones and music players.
  • 114 homes received water filters and we did followup visits in 159 homes in 18 villages/towns. Every home receiving a filter also receives His Gospel.
  • Our adult literacy team had student graduations.

In Ivory Cost, we went on mission to 3 villages/towns. We are preparing for Wordsower to establish a base in Ivory Coast. The Ivorian’s have 36 unreached tribes of approximately 7 million people.   

Our Lord had put it on my heart to go and see what He would have us do in Nigeria. I spent a month in Nigeria and visited 3 Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps as well as several villages, towns, and cities. It is estimated that the militant Muslims have killed 27,000 people, left 2 million homeless, and burnt hundreds, if not thousands, of church buildings. Many of the homeless have escaped to refugee camps in other countries or form IDP camps within their country. 

His Church in Northern Nigeria is wounded! There are numerous IDP camps holding many thousands. I found an unofficial camp where about 40 unassisted families were living in an abandoned market. 35 of the families were headed by widows whose husbands had been killed. With Wordsower donations we were able to provide food and money to them twice, spending about $1,400 in total. They are in desperate condition. Every visit I made I saw no food. I want us to continue to provide them food and money until returning with a team, hopefully in April.  

Muslim Background Believers (MBB) are former Muslims that have become Christian. I was told by the MBBs I met that thousands have come to Christ, but are not being discipled nor have places of worship that fit their culture. With Wordsower donations we were able to provide furnishings for a MBB underground church in an abandoned upper room of a retail building. When a team and I return, we will start discipling MBBs and teach them how to start underground churches.

Muslims need to hear our Lord’s Gospel. Nigeria has 95 unreached tribes of approximately 59 million people. With Wordsower donations we were able to purchase sound recording equipment for radio broadcasts. We have the opportunity to unite with MBB leaders to broadcast Bible teachings to the Muslims and hidden believers of the Hausa language in Northern Nigeria. We also now have MBBs who are translating tracts and Bible teaching material into the Hausa language for us to print and distribute when we return. 

The discovery made while in Nigeria is that the fruit is plentiful and the workers are few!!! Our Lord has taught me through the years to just show up in obedience and He will do the rest. We united. Showing up in obedience in Nigeria will produce fruit – much fruit. Fruit that will last. 












Participate with us in Praise and prayer:
  • Pray for Ana DeCarvalho and her son Thomas that will be coming to visit us in Liberia. Ana is on our Wordsower board.
  • Pray for our first indigenous missionary team that has been sent to Capemount County. They are surrounded with three Muslim unreached tribes.
  • Pray that we can open a new mission in Ivory Coast! They will go to enlarge and strengthen His church and to the 36 unreached tribes of 7 million people.
  • Pray that our Lord will continue to send and guide us to go into Northern Nigeria to assist His wounded church, to the Muslim Background Believers, and to reach the unreached Muslim tribes.
  • Our Lord says to pray for more harvesters to be sent into the field. Truly the harvest is plentiful and the workers few. Pray for more indigenous and foreign harvesters. 

100% of all donations go to the mission. None is used for administration. Tax-deductible receipts will be sent each January.

November 2018 End of Month Report

Our Mission is to see a healthy church in every village of Liberia.  It takes many weapons to fight and win a war.  Wordsower Liberia has many weapons:

Our Weapons:

  • We sent teams on 49 missions to 84 villages/towns in 8 Counties
  • We sent a team to Ivory Coast on mission 
  • We did 5, three-day trainings in 5 counties.  Many are unable to attend our school so we send teams out to do trainings.
  • 26 attended our Wordsower Bible Institute 2-week, level-3 French class. The Bible Institute trains the students in Bible doctrine, discipleship, church planting, and becoming missionaries.
  • We have an hour radio broadcast every day.  The broadcast presents the Gospel and teaches scripture.
  • Our printing press has been shut down because of mechanical problems and because we are out of paper.  The road is impassible; no cars or trucks can get through to bring supplies to the SE of Liberia.
  • Our dentist treated 17 patients and extracted 20 teeth. We have the only dentist in 6 counties.  His Gospel is presented to every patient, many of which are Muslims.
  • We have distributed hundreds of thousands of bibles in over a 1,000 villages.  For those who are illiterate we have given away many audio Bibles on small memory chips, in their dialects, that can be used in phones and music players.
  • 205 homes received water filters.  We have the assignment of providing a water filter system to every small village home in Maryland County. Every home receiving a filter will also receive his Gospel.
  • The Capemont County Missionary Team continues to be trained on our base in Zwedru while the mission housing and school are being renovated.  We plan on the team moving to Capemont County on January 4. The mission of WSL is for every village of Liberia to have a healthy church.  In Liberia we have a half million people in 5 unreached Muslim tribes.  We must go to them!!!  We have learned that to be accepted into an unreached resistant tribe we must “Give them what they want so that we can give them what they need.”  They want a school for their children, they need Salvation through Jesus Christ.  This team will be reaching the Muslim unreached Gola and Vai tribes as they give their children education.


2 Tim 2:3-4, “Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs—he wants to please his commanding officer.”  Francis in the picture below is holding the helmet he was wearing when he got into an accident.  The helmet split.  After returning from the hospital he got another helmet and went out again.  He is a true soldier of the Cross.  Francis loves the American marines and is one in our Lord’s army. Accidents will never cease.  Today many have wounds healing from the bikes, myself included.  Pray for our continued protection as we go to remote places, to the lost, and to strengthen His Church.

On December 9, this Sunday I, Kim, will be flying to Nigeria and will return to Liberia on January 4.  I feel compelled by the Spirit to go to the refugee camps to see His wounded church and to seek the lost.  Our Lord commands for us, His Church, to participate in these.

“Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ?”  1 Cor 10:16. The blood of Christ was shed for the lost.  The body of Christ was broken for His church.  We are to be participants in His sacrifice. “Then Jesus said to his disciples, if anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.” Matt 16:24-25.  We, His church, must be there! Be there to care for His persecuted Church, to bring His Gospel to the unreached tribes and to the militant Muslims.  Many have been called to be there and have obeyed. The problem is huge.  Reinforcements and supplies are still needed

Participate with us in Praise and prayer:
  • Praise, a team went to Ivory Coast and have found a perfect place to lease.  Pray that we will be able to lease it.
  • Pray that we can open a new mission in Ivory Coast!  They go to enlarge and strengthen His church and to the 36 unreached tribes of 7 million people.
  • Pray for our filter team as they distribute filters in a new county, Maryland County.
  • Our indigenous missionary team is going to the unreached Vai and Gola tribes on January 4th.  Pray that our Lord will prepare our team to go and our Lord will prepare the tribes to receive.
  • Our Lord says to pray for more harvesters to be sent into the field.  Truly the harvest is plentiful and the workers few. Pray for more indigenous and foreign harvesters

October 2018 End of Month Report

Our Mission is to see a healthy church in every village of Liberia.  It takes many weapons to fight and win a war.  Wordsower Liberia has many weapons:

Our Weapons:
  • 4 were baptized this month!
  • We sent teams on 35 missions to 46 villages/towns in 9 counties.
  • We did 6 three-day trainings in 5 counties.  Many are unable to attend our school so we send teams out to do trainings.
  • 45 attended our Wordsower Bible Institute 2-week, level-3 English class. The Bible Institute trains the students in Bible doctrine, discipleship, church planting, and becoming missionaries.
  • We have an hour radio broadcast every day.  The broadcast presents the Gospel and teaches scripture.
  • Our printing press has been shut down because of mechanical problems and because we are out of paper.  The road is impassible, no cars or trucks can get through to bring supplies to the SE of Liberia.
  • Our dentist treated 18 patients and extracted 23 teeth. We have the only dentist in 5 counties.  The Gospel is presented to every patient, many are Muslims.
  • We have distributed hundreds of thousands of bibles in over 1,000 villages.  For those who are illiterate, we have given away many audio Bibles on small memory chips, in their dialects, that can be used in phones and music players.
  • Our water filter team has moved to Maryland County.  We have the assignment of providing a water filter system to every small village home in the county.  The larger communities will have drilled wells. Our filter team has been there a couple weeks but the county government has not allowed them to begin.  We hope they will be released this week.  Every home receiving a filter will also receive his Gospel.
  • The Capemont County Missionary Team continues to be trained on our base in Zwedru while the mission housing and school are being renovated.  The mission of WSL is for every village of Liberia to have a healthy church.  In Liberia, we have a half million people in 5 unreached Muslim tribes.  We must go to them!!!  We have learned that in order to be accepted into an unreached resistant tribe we must, “Give them what they want so that we can give them what they need.”  They want a school for their children, they need Salvation through Jesus Christ.  This team will be reaching the Muslim unreached Gola and Vai tribes.


Praise God!! We have 11 new motorbikes on the road!  Currently, teams are using them to spread His Gospel, discipling, church planting, and training existing church leaders. Some of the bikes are being used to put water filter systems in the homes of remote small villages.  We are dancing, rejoicing, and celebrating!

I, Kim, now have one year, multiple entry visas for Ivory Coast and Nigeria.  I also have a round-trip plane ticket for Nigeria.  I fly out of Liberia on December 9th and return back to Liberia from Nigeria on January 4th.  We are just an hour from the Ivorian boarder and will go there on bikes.

Wordsower Liberia started in refugee camps for Liberians in Ghana.  In 2019, we plan on having indigenous missionary teams in all 5 unreached tribes of Liberia.  Also, next year we will be opening a new mission in Ivory Coast.  This Ivorian mission was birthed in refugee camps for Ivorians in Liberia and will be led by former refugees that were trained by Wordsower Liberia.  The primary mission of Wordsower Ivory Coast will be to train and send indigenous missionaries into the 32 unreached tribes of 7 million people.

Now we head to Nigeria.  Nigeria has refugee camps with over 2.4 million refugees plus another 4.5 million people who are depending on food assistance for survival.  Malnutrition, starvation, disease, and death sweep through these camps and the land of Northern Nigeria. It is the militant Muslims that are massacring the church and even their fellow Muslims.  The refugee camps are a strategic place to bring the Gospel to the unreached tribes.  Refugees from most of the tribes enter the camps having lost everything including the cultural isolation of their tribe and Islamic overseers.  In the loss, confusion, chaos, suffering, and violence caused by their Muslim brothers, there is a new openness to His Gospel.  We, His church, must be there! We must be there to care for His persecuted Church, to bring His Gospel to the unreached tribes, and to the militant Muslims.  Just as it has happened in Liberia and the Ivory Coast it will be the converted in the camps that will one day return to their tribes with His Gospel.  A perfect storm of sorts…if we show up!



Participate with us in Praise and prayer:
  • Praise God for our 11 new motorbikes!
  • Praise God I have visas for Nigeria and Ivory Coast
  • Pray for our filter team as they go to Maryland County to distribute filters
  • Pray for our indigenous missionary team as they prepare to go to the Vai and Gola tribes
  • Pray as we go into Ivory Coast this month searching for our Wordsower Ivory Coast base
  • Our Lord says to pray for more harvesters to be sent into the field.  Truly the harvest is plentiful and the workers few. Pray for more indigenous and foreign harvesters
