February Ministry Report: More Workers for the Harvest

The mission of Jesus, “not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (2 Pet 3:9 NIV), is also our mission.

Wordsower International exists for the purpose of going to all the villages and towns of Liberia to preach the good news, disciple, encourage and train existing churches and raise up leaders to start churches. Most of the towns and villages of Liberia have no church.

This month we made approximately 70 mission/ministry trips, visiting 29 villages, and other locations. Many of the places we visited multiple times, our longest trip was a few days, shortest a few hours. We printed and distributed 14,200 pages of teaching material and distributed hundreds of Bibles. This month we baptized many, and many completed our extensive Bible study program.

Our team in Africa is: 1 from America, 1 from France, 5 Liberians in the original core team, 17 Liberian ministers that travel with us to the villages and many field leaders. The team of supporters in USA and France are also many. We, as one united team, are all working together, under the leadership of Christ, for the kingdom of God in Liberia!

This month 567 school kids were awarded certificates and Bibles for completing 10 lessons. Each lesson was 4 pages long and required the students to memorize Bible verses. It was a great success the school administrators and students loved it. We are preparing for 2,000 children to do the program next school year.

Christine Medan, from Paris, France, ministered with us for about 3 months 2 years ago. She went back but left her heart. She quit her job as a head nurse in a hospital, gave away most of her possessions and this month returned to live and minister with us. Her friends, family and church have united with her in prayer and support. Praise God! She is much needed as a nurse, and worker with the women. She also knows Arabic, and has a passion to work with the Muslims. Ivory Coast, our French speaking neighbor, is in violent civil war. Over 30,000 refugees have poured into Liberia, with more coming each day. She is now translating our training material into French for them.

The Maryland County branch is doing great. The three of them went on 27 mission trips to 10 villages, and other locations, plus many small groups within the county capital.

Can you believe it, Franklin Graham, Billy’s son, will be speaking in Zwedru next week? The place where he is speaking is less than 2 miles from our place. We are working with them and will provide training for the converts after he leaves. 1,000’s are expected to attend.

Our team continues to grow; we purchased our 5th motorbike so we could send more on missions.

Malaria, Typhoid, a blood infection and infected foot have kept me off mission for much of the month.
Please be in prayer with us for the health and safety of our team. We are constantly having illnesses that put us out of service.
