"Evil will rapidly increase when God's people just sit back"

Our mission is that every village of Liberia will have a healthy church.  Most of the towns and villages of Liberia have no church.  We have worked in over 200 villages in 8 counties. This month we made 68 mission/ministry trips, visiting 48 villages and other locations, going into 1 new location.  Many of the places we visited multiple times, our longest trip was 20 days, shortest a few hours.  We printed and distributed 4,400 pages of teaching material and distributed hundreds of Bibles, 11 were baptized and 8 completed our extensive Bible study program.   Several factors affect how many mission trips we can go on each month; illness, injuries, motorbikes repaired, the availability of gas and money are some. 

Some highlights of the month

There are 8,735 towns and villages in Liberia.  We believe that there will be a healthy church in every town and village of Liberia within our lifetime.  Only once has a village told us they didn’t want a church in their town, later they changed their mind and have invited us to help them start one.  In Mozambique they started 10,000 churches in the last 17 years.  We can also! 

We have started visiting a new area across the Harper River in Maryland County. The town’s name is Puluken.  According to the history of the town it has never had a church.   The people said they believe that is the reason why the blessing of God is far from them.  So they requested for us to help them start a church in their churchless town.

We did two 3 day conferences and a 1 day conference using our manuals.  The conferences teach about having a healthy church and how to start one.  The conferences were attended by 87 people.

We showed the Jesus film in 4 village/towns to about 500-800 people.

Jehovah Witnesses have flooded Liberia with their little magazines.  They are everywhere, even deep in the bush.  What a shame!  Except for ours, I never see any good Christian literature anywhere.  Why can they do that and we not?   Evil will rapidly increase when God’s people just sit back.

Christine is just getting over a bad case of Malaria.  She was very sick for about 3 days.  She is now up and back into action.

Thank you for your prayers, donations and encouragement,
