A Letter to Supporters: July Ministry Update


Below is an edited note I got from Albert Dossen, one of our leaders, while I was in the states.

We have started making trips into the interior already. Aloysius & Badio went to Pynes Town to work with our leaders there. While they were there the Devil (the name given to the leader, a man) and his Disciple’s, from Pynes Town, at 2:00 AM attacked Peace Camp (a gold mining village where we are also working and starting a church). They beat some of the men, raped two of the women, burnt homes, pillaged and ruined the entire camp. When they returned to Pynes Town they met our team there. One of our trained local leaders, Moses, they took to their place of worship, stripped him and were preparing to tie and beat him when he was able to escape. Badio & Aloysius found means of escaping also. As they were escaping they found Moses running on the road naked. They picked him up and the three returned to our place in Zwedru. As I'm writing you Pynes Town is on fire also. The government is trying to get things under control.

That’s all for now bye,
My best regard,

I personally spoke to the regional commander, a friend of mine, who confirmed the story as true. He went personally with armed national troops to Peace Camp and Pynes Town and made several arrests. The Devil escaped and is in hiding. The Devil and his Disciples are a satanic religion, found in most of the villages of Liberia. They are very evil, controlling and violent. They have alters and make ritualistic sacrifices, sometimes they will even sacrifice children. They attacked because they said the camp no longer gave them proper respect.

We need your prayers. Pray that our Lord will show us how to respond to this attack, that He will bind the power of the enemy and release His Spirit in Pynes Town.

Currently I am in Monrovia purchasing ministry supplies to take back to our base in Zwedru. We are in the rainy season which makes the roads very bad. Pray that we are able to get the supplies needed and will be get them safely home.

Donations can be made by writing a check to:

100% of all donations go directly to Liberia for the mission. None is used for administration or for the missionaries. A tax deductible receipt will be given each January.

Thank you,

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then.”
Eph 6:10-14 NIV
