February 2017 End of Month Report

We went on 32 missions in 6 counties impacting 89 villages and towns in 2 countries, Liberia and Ivory Coast.  A mission can last 1-7 days.  We did 4 two day conferences.  Our projector was used several times showing the Jesus film and other Christian training films.  We baptized 10 people.  Many had the Gospel presented to them and many made confessions of faith asking our Lord for salvation and forgiveness.  We printed 35,000 pages of Bible training material.  We made 70 manuals. 
 
We had 66 students in our level 4 class and several that listened in.  This was our first level 4 training.  The training was about being sent as a missionary.  At the end of the class over 15 turned in applications to be considered and sent as missionaries to the 4 unreached tribes in Liberia the Vai, Mandingo, Gola, and Dan.  Our students came from 10 counties of the 16 Liberian counties.  We also had students from two countries; Ivory Coast and Liberia.  The students have returned to spread the Gospel as they were taught.   We will be sending our field leaders to them throughout the year to assist them in producing fruit, to encourage, provide material, and continue to train. 
 
Exciting news!  We have sent our first missionary team to spy out the land of the Vai and giants won’t scare us (Numbers 12:31-33).  They are a Muslim mixed with animism stronghold.  The Joshua Project gives this report concerning the Vai, “There are about 2 Christians for every 1,000 Vai.  There are no known churches.  The Vai are predominantly Muslim, but many traditional pagan beliefs are still practiced.”  There are about 162,000 Vai and they are mostly located in Grand Capemont County, a county we have never sent a disciple to before. 
 
 
 
More great news!  We purchased 6 new motor bikes!  We now have 10 new bikes.  Our old bikes we will send to our established teams in other counties.
 
Still more!  Our dental clinic had 3 patients and pulled 6 teeth.  We need prayer.  The County Health Department has not given us permission to operate.  Pray that they will give us permission.
 
Filter distribution:  We went to 12 remote villages and gave filters to 52 homes providing clean water for about 275 – 325 people.  Notice the pictures of the water they were drinking!    
 




Our press shop wall structure is complete.  The roof and outside plastering should be finished this week.

 
 
Pray requests:  We are overwhelmed with praise.  The fruit of our Bible Institute Level 4 class produced over 15 missionary applicants.  Praise God for the 6 new motorbikes, and praise for the complete funding of our new Press Shop.  Pray for that the County Health Department will give us permission to officially operate our dental clinic.  Pray for our first sent missionary team to the Vai tribe.

January 2017 end of month report


 
We went on 21 missions in 6 counties impacting 59 villages and towns in 2 countries, Liberia and Ivory Coast.  A mission can last 1-7 days.  We did 2 three day conferences.  Our projector was used 3 times showing the Jesus film and other Christian training films.  We baptized 42 people.  Many had the Gospel presented to them and many made confessions of faith asking our Lord for salvation and forgiveness.  We printed 9,000 pages of Bible training material.  We made 491 manuals. 
 
 
 
 
We had 41 students in our level 1 class and several that listen in.  They came from 9 counties which represent over 1/2 of the 16 Liberian counties.  We also had students from three countries; Ivory Coast, Nigeria, and Liberia.  The students have returned to spread the Gospel as they were taught.  Except for Nigeria, we will also be sending our field leaders to them throughout the year to assist them in producing fruit, to encourage, provide material, and continue to train.
 
Exciting news!  One of our students comes from an unreached people group of Liberia and is a former Muslim.  He comes from the Vai tribe.  Joshua Project considers the Vai to be an unreached people group.  They are a Muslim mixed with animism stronghold.  He is from Grand Capemont County, a county we have never sent a disciple to.  He is determined to go back to them and share the gospel!!  He and I have agreed that he should stay on our base for at least a month to attend level 4.  While here for the month we will continue to train and prepare him.  We plan on sending a mission team with him when he returns.  
 
Some of these Bible Institute students were unknown to us having been brought by our Lord.  But most all of these students have come because our field leaders on motorbikes have made an impact on them while visiting their communities.  We have been to 13 of the 16 counties evangelizing, discipling and working towards church plants.
 
The two pictures below show mission team being prayed over before they leave.  The second picture shows a team leaving in the background with our repairman fixing a bike for another team to be sent out.
  
 
 
 
Our press shop wall structure should be complete this week.
 
 
 
 
As I type this report our dental team is preparing to pull their first tooth.  Exciting!!!  Bad teeth bring much pain and even death.  This is a huge blessing for the SE of Liberia where hundreds of thousands have had no access to a dentist.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pray requests:  We praise God for an anointed Level 1 class.  Pray for our Bible Institute Level 4 class that starts on February 20th, each class lasts 2 weeks.  Praise God our dental clinic is in operation.  Pray that we can start distributing our water filters.  Surely I broke a toe (no X-ray equipment) in a motorbike mishap.  Pray for healing.

December 2016 end of month report

                          December 2016 End of Month Report
In December the Gospel of our Lord was presented to 1,000’s.  We went on 31 missions in 6 counties impacting 68 villages and towns and doing 7 three day conferences.  Our projector was used 14 times showing the Jesus film and other Christian training films to over 2,000.  We baptized 46 people.  Many made confessions of faith asking our Lord for salvation and forgiveness.  We printed 80,000 pages of Bible training material. 

Christmas – Dresses for the girls, glasses for the boys, rice and candy for all.  A grand day of celebration!  We ended with the Jesus Film for the community.




We are constructing a new much needed press shop.  We hope to have it finished in 3-4 months.  We have a good start.  Foundation will be complete this week.


A Testimony from a Recent Church Plant Pastor:
Alex Tolah is from Vleyee Town.  Here is his testimony.  “I first met WSL in 2013.  They encouraged us to start a church and have faith in Christ Jesus.  We never had a church in our town of 45 houses (that is about 350-400 people).  They kept coming and teaching.  Those who were coming to us were Victor, Messiah, Osazee and Isaac, they would come plenty.  They helped me to start a church.  They helped cut the sticks, built the building and daubed it.  Today we have about 45 adults who attend.  Most of our teaching in church and Sunday school comes from the teachings of WSL.  Many of us have completed the Bible marking and have certificates.  With WSL we have baptized 14 and serve communion in our church as we were taught by WSL.”

A Letter I Received:
“Dear Kim Smith,
This is to inform you that we the people of Balabo Upper Konobo District we are kindly asking the board to please help us to see reason to send leaders to give us some word of encouragement which is the Bible because our people are living in the dark world and some of us we cannot read and write.  We have the vision but we need someone to empower us and we also hear much about your motto Matt 28:18-20 please come to our cry we are expecting Bro Ben and Peter to come on 22 of December 2016.  May the Lord bless you.”  It was signed by the town chief. 

Reports of Disciples Returning from Mission:
Unedited - “The workshop went great we had 65 adults and 26 children the first night… Three persons were baptized on the last day.  We showed the Jesus film 2 nights in Kilo Town and one night in Greenville.  The participants requested another workshop.”

Unedited – “The first day was spent in Sinkor Town.  Melvin taught on the “Great Commission” as least 11 persons was present.  After the teaching Messiah elaborated on the coming of WSL, the Bible school the various levels.  The next day was spent in Glorkpadee town.  Messiah taught on “Time” as least 6 persons were present in the house church.  After the church, one Charles Flomo was so encouraged with the teaching that he appealed to WSL that he want to be pastor and the entire town requesting for church so we also teach and explain about WSL Bible college from level 1 to level 4.  At length we pray with them and took off for Zwedru”… (this is another report from that region) “The three days were spent in Glorkpadees town.  Messiah taught on “Repentance” the first day.  The second day Messiah taught on “Salvation”, in the morning.  In the evening Melvin taught on “Starting a Church” which was the last day both Melvin and Messiah teach on “Baptism”, many promise to be baptized by our returning.  On the contrary one Charles Flomo praying and requesting to be pastor of Glorkpadee town.  There are four towns in the region that has no church so Charles is asking WSL to come for the various levels and gets well understanding of the Bible.”

Unedited – “One hour of house to house teaching was done in William Koon village that contains about 7 houses and huts on two lessons “Repentance” and “Reasons not to Sin”…. In the next town (I was led by God to do teaching outside a club where they play checkers and Ludu) There was a huge attendance there seeing this as the first of its kind for Gospel teaching to be done in such a place.  Many of them were not Christians and don’t attend church and some were Devil followers.  Recorded attendance was 49 persons.”

Unedited – “There were so many people came in contact with after teaching the Gospel Picture I am not able to name them… I also visited Ganta Main Street where I taught about Jesus Christ… and even in the entertainment centers…  At the end of the program 5 persons received Christ and accepted Him as their savior and they were baptized on the 25th of December.”

Pray requests:  We praise God for a great past year and believe the next will be greater.  Pray for our Bible Institute that opens this month, each class lasts 2 weeks.  Praise God for answered prayer, we are sending 2 to Monrovia this month to learn how to pull teeth.  In our region of maybe 1-2 million there is no dentist.  They will return with the chair, equipment and knowledge on how to pull teeth.  Pray that all will go well and that they can travel as dentists and ministers from village to village.  Praise God we will be receiving enough water filters for every home in every small remote village of our county.  Pray that as we share the Gospel, we will be able to put these water filters in every home.  Dirty drinking water is the second greatest killer in Liberia.

November 2016 report

This month we worked in 4 counties going into 23 villages evangelizing, discipling, starting churches and assisting established churches.  We did five 2-3 day regional workshops, showed the Jesus film 1 time and 3 were baptized.  We also printed and distributed 10,000 pages of teaching material, distributed many Bibles and manuals.


 
The picture above is some of the residents of Pineapple village.  They walked about an hour, carrying load, to greet me.  They brought the fruits of their labors as gifts; pawpaw, rice, banana and a rooster.  These gifts came with true sacrifice.  Their harvested rice will finish before the next harvest is brought in, yet they gave us 40 cups.  They came to welcome me and tell me “sorry” about the accident.  It was their way of saying thanks for how we have assisted them in the past.  When we met them years ago they had no church, were worshipping the devil, no school and were drinking dirty water.  Today they have a fellowship that meets and all have clean water.  The worshipping of the devil is over!  Patrick, one of the town leaders, has finished 3 levels of our Bible Institute and is their church leader.  Their lives have been eternally changed as has their quality of life.  We plan on training Patrick to be the literacy teacher so that the youth and adults will learn to read, write and do simple math.  Their smiles, hope and joy was overflowing.
 

 
The pictures above are of our adult literacy graduation ceremony.  We had 15 graduates complete the training, nine completed level 1 and six completed level 2.  Now all these women are able to read.  In the future we want to offer Levels 1-3.  We also have plans to teach the village spiritual leaders to teach literacy in their region to both youth and adults.

Yetta has been vising us for years.  During these years she has had a terrible stinking rotten leg.  She gave me her twins to raise because she was not able to take care of them.  While I was in USA her 5 year old boy got malaria. Treatment for malaria is 75 cents.  She delayed treatment, he got worse.  When she got him to the hospital he was in bad condition.  The doctors said it would cost $50 treat him and that they would not start treatment without payment.  She ran the town frantically begging.  Sometime later She arrived with $20 but it was too late her boy had passed away.  Early treatment of 75 cents or late treatment of $50 and the child would be alive today.  In my office Yetta wept bitterly as she told me the story.  This is just one story of the preventable atrocities, injustice and hopelessness caused by poverty that blanket this country.    

Praise God!  Money was donated for 10 motorbikes.  We have purchased 4 and have them out on missions.  We are evaluating when to purchase the others.  Also money was donated to start construction of our much needed new print shop.  Construction has started.  We hope to have it completed in 4-5 months.

Prayer Requests:  I urge you by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit to join us in our struggle by praying to God for us, Romans 15:30.  Probably 3 million Liberians do not have access to a dentist.  The exciting news is in January we will be able to send 2 of our leaders to Monrovia to be trained by American dentists to pull teeth.  Pray that this plan will work and that we will be able to acquire all the dental equipment needed so we can start pulling teeth as needed from village to village, showing our love, as we evangelize and disciple.  We want to again start distributing water filters in the remote villages where they are drinking dirty water.  Malaria is the number one killer in Liberia and dirty water is number 2.  Pray that we will be able to get the equipment shipped to us from Monrovia. 

November Expenses:
$4,263 – Motor bikes - Includes purchasing 4 motorbikes, gas, repairs, 9 helmets, 13 sets of rain boot, 5 raincoats.
$958 - Mission expenses – includes feeding, supplies and compensations
$466 - Humanitarian includes medical, rent assistance, food, and a business start
$670 - Base expenses – includes base feeding, upkeep, maintenance, generator gas for press and printers. 
$290 – staff support
$180 – Night security.  Doors and windows are locked and secure so thieves took machete and cut through our metal roof.  This now requires us to have night security.
$6,827 - Total

We want to keep you informed.  Below is list of goals that we are working towards to accomplish our mission of seeing a healthy church in every village of Liberia in this generation.    

1, 5, 10 year plans for WSL
Our desire is to have the heart, mind, passion, will and plans of our Lord, not our will but His will be done.  It is good to make plans, set and pursue goals knowing that God’s will, will be done and that as we go forward He will adjust our plans to fit His will.

“The plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.  Ps 33:11
 









“I know, O LORD, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps.  
Correct me, LORD,” Jer 10:23-24

“I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.  Ps 16:7

In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.” Pr 16:9  

“If the LORD delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not
fall, for the LORD upholds  him with his hand.  Ps 37:23-24

“Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Ps 37:4

Goals for 2017
·        There is a list of our methods, weapons, used to accomplish our mission.  We want to strengthen and increase each of these methods.
·        Disciple and strengthen our Liberian board.
·        Teach levels 1-4 in the Bible Institute.  Teach the school 11 months meeting the last two weeks of each month.  No classes in December.  
·        Print and distribute 1 million pages of teaching material making thousands of booklets and manuals both in English and French.  There is a huge need, there is desire from the people to receive the training material and we have the ability to distribute the material.  I believe this will bring much lasting fruit.
·        Continue sending teams into the villages evangelizing, discipling, creating leaders and starting churches.  We have some very good, fruitful elder quality leaders. 
·        Have several missionary in training candidates living on our base, planting churches within reach of our base and preparing to go to the unreached tribes of Liberia.
·        Using water filters as a tool showing the Liberians the love and compassion of Christ in us.  This tool would be part of our mission to evangelize, disciple and church plant.
·        Implant the vision and assist existing churches to start free, independent churches and send out missionary teams as in Acts 13:1-4.
·        Continue to have interns visit from the USA.
·        Build a press shop costing approximately $10,000. 
·        Start a dental program that will go from village to village showing love as we evangelize   and disciple.

Within 5 years
·        We would implement new methods, weapons, to accomplish our mission as revealed by our Lord that are not known at this time.
·        We would continue to strengthen and increase our methods, weapons, used to accomplish our mission. 
·        Maybe we would form a unity of independent churches.
·        Another missionary would join WSL.
·        I would be continuing to create indigenous leaders to replace me, preparing for my future death.
·        We would be active in Ivory Coast sponsoring several missionary teams. There is a great cry from them for us to do more in their country.
·        Maybe we could open a new branch in Ivory Coast led by another missionary.
·        Have missionary teams serving in all the unreached tribes of Liberia.
·        Have missionary teams serving in West and North Africa.
·        Add buildings for the Bible Institute to increase the number of students who will become ministers and missionaries.

Within 10 years (I will be 69 in 10 years)
·        Be alive!!!?
·        We would continue to strengthen and increase our methods, weapons, used to accomplish our mission. 
·        Every unreached tribe of Liberia would have church planting missionary teams.
·        We would have several missionary teams planting churches in several West and North African countries.
·        Churches would be starting other free and independent churches. They would be training and sending out their own missionary teams as in Acts 13:1-4.
·        Every village of Liberia would have had the Gospel presented to them, would have received Bibles and Bible training material.
·        Be able to turn WSL in Liberia over to another missionary and the trained indigenous leaders.
·        I would spend more time as a consultant, overseer, and traveling throughout West and North Africa implementing our methods and system into their countries.
·        I would be visiting our missionary teams throughout West and North Africa.

And Beyond
·        Every village of Liberia would have a worshipping fellowship of believers!!!
·        North and West Africa would be flooded with missionaries.
·        Experience the great tribulation and rapture J.
·        “Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.” Rev 2:10-11.
·        “To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne.” Rev 3:21.

October 2016 mission report


  

Praise God for answered prayer!  We have received a donation from a church in Michigan for $10,000 for the purchase of 10 much needed motorbikes.  Also, a ministry in California donated $2,000 for a plate making machine needed for our Printing press shop.

My return flight is November 15th.  I expect to be in Liberia for another 2 years.

In October went on 16 mission trips to 25 villages in 4 counties.  We conducted 6 three day workshops in 3 counties. Four persons completed the Bible making lessons and two persons were baptized.

Expenditures:

$895 was spent on missions

$390 on motorbike repairs

$253 on humanitarian assistance such as rent, medicine, school fees and food

$625 on staff support (7 adults)

$379 operation of the base – includes feeding, gas, printing expenses and general supplies

Please continue to lift us up in prayer.  We see that the harvest is truly plentiful but that the workers are few.  Pray that our Lord will raise up and send an army of workers into this harvest field.  Pray that our Lord would send us a multitude of His chosen to be trained and sent out.

The mission of WSL is to see a healthy church in every village in this generation so that every Liberian would be able to walk and find a healthy church.

Below are some of the weapons we use to accomplish our mission

“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.  We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (2 Cor 10:4-5). 

The Written Word:  We have distributed maybe 25,000 to 50,000 Gideon Bibles.  Also, we have purchased and resold (We buy them in Monrovia and resale at our cost) several hundred NIV and Good News Bibles. We also acquire and distribute Bibles in the languages of the people. It is very difficult for people to get Bibles in most of Liberia. This has been a great service to the Liberian’s. 

The Print Shop: We have printed and distributed, I am sure, over one million pages of teaching material.  We have over 60 lessons written specifically for the Liberian.  Simple English and concepts usually on no more than one piece of paper per subject.  We have 3 main manuals and now an evangelistic booklet.  The manuals cover basic doctrines, discipleship and the church.  The Liberians have overwhelmingly received with great joy and appreciation the Bibles and teaching material. When I arrived in 2008 the only spiritual material I saw was JW Watchtower booklets and they were everywhere even in the deepest most remote villages.  Now things have changed the Bibles and teaching material we distribute has reached into over 800 towns/villages.        

Missions into the Villages:  We send out trained teams into the communities to evangelize, disciple, raise up leaders, train existing leaders and start churches.  Our teams bring to the people His written word.  They also preach and teach.  It has been tremendously effective, fruitful and appreciated.  Likewise, we do 2-3 day regional trainings.  Spiritual leaders from a region meet in a central location for training.  This has been one of our great weapons for accomplishing the mission of WSL.  It is an essential ingredient. Many, many communities call us regular inviting us to return to them for workshops and training.  

The Bible Institute:  Throughout Liberia spiritual leaders have not been trained!  Their options for training are limited.  The most common method of training in Liberia is the American educational system which is found mostly in Monrovia, the capital.  This system has the spiritual leader relocate and attend fulltime a 2-4 year Bible college or seminary.  This method is expensive, produces unnecessary hardship, and requires students to have completed high school, thus making it inaccessible to about 95% or more of the Liberians.  Our Bible Institute has been specifically developed to meet the needs of the Liberian.  We have four levels that meet throughout the year.  They meet and live on our base the last 2 weeks of each month.  The demand for the school is huge. We have had classes from 25-70 students.  We have housing for 30 on our base.  In the future, we hope to enlarge our school to accommodate 100 students.  We own 1 ¼ lots we have room to build additional housing and classrooms.

Jesus Film: The Jesus Film is another powerful weapon used for accomplishing our mission.  When our teams go into a village they teach and preach sections of the scripture.  The Jesus film presents the life of Christ, His crucifixion, burial, resurrection and accession. It is essential that those we minister too have the complete picture.

Form and Send Missionary Teams: The Joshua Project states that 60% of Liberia is unreached and that 5 of the 16 tribes of Liberia are still unreached.  Students attend 4 levels of our Bible institute.  After completion of the Bible Institute if some feel called and it is confirmed with our board then they will live on our base 3-6 months for one on one daily deeper training and discipleship.  While on our base and in training they will start 3-5 successful churches.  Next, as our Lord leads, they would be sent into the unreached tribes of Liberia and then on to North Africa. North Africa is in the “10/40 Window” and is about 98% Islamic.

Ministering to the Illiterate: Much of the population of Liberia lives in remote villages.  In these villages the literacy rate may be 10%-20%.  We reach the illiterate through preaching and teaching.  They need to also be raised up as leaders and disciplers.  Tools that we now have in place are:

·         Teaching spiritual leaders how to teach literacy to those in their villages

·         Conducting literacy classes on our base and other locations

·         Teaching and distributing “The Gospel Picture” bracelets

·         Teaching Romans chapters 1-8 using pictures

·         We have distributed micro-chips that fit in their phones and music boxes.  We give them, audibly, the Bible in their language, Christian music (Don’s CD), and preaching in English, and teaching in their dialect.

Distribution of Water Filters:  Dirty water is the second largest killer of Liberians, Malaria comes first.  We use the filters to show the love of Christ to those who are suffering and dying because of dirty water.  United with another ministry called The Last Well we have been given water filters for every home in our county.  These water filters last a lifetime and never need chemicals or replacement parts. 

Our mission is to see a healthy church in every village of Liberia in this generation so that every Liberian would be able to walk and find a healthy church.  Each of these weapons is essential components to assist us to accomplish our mission.  I sense our Lord is giving vision for the enlarging of our territory.  We now have several trained active teams in Ivory Coast and a team in Nigeria and others who feel called to other countries of Africa.
