March, 2015 Ministry Report

Don and Mel Riley:  March 26th, the Riley family arrived at their new house in Bong County.  They have joined a team of Liberians with the vision of seeing healthy churches started in Bong, Lofa, and Montserrado Counties.

Kim Smith:  Kim will be on Liberian soil on May 1st.  It has been a wonderful, fruitful visit to the USA. 

Maryland Construction Project: Our base in Maryland County has purchased land and has started construction.  Our water well is complete. The foundation for our residential building is complete and they have started on the walls.

Here are a few excerpts from reports of those returning from mission trips:

From the village of Bartejam:  We met a group of drug addicts and dealers.  They let us teach the lesson on repentance and forgiveness.  They listened and all agreed that they understood the topics.  But they did not repent.  The said, “We want you to continue coming to us so that we can be delivered from these evil habits.”  We prayed with them and went on to the next village.

From the Tarjowan District:  We met Jerome who Wordsower Liberia had discipled in 2008 in a refugee camp in the country of Ghana.  We had lost track of him and found him in this very remote region of Liberia.  He has been producing eternal fruit in his village and in the 5 villages nearby.  Jerome was excited to be reunited with us.  We encouraged him, supplied him with Bibles and teaching material, and promised to return regularly.

From the villages of Morris Dolwhor:  We parked our bike and hiked 2 hours.  In Morris Dolwho we found 8 huts and 58 people.  They are farmers, gold diggers and hunters.  There is no church.  They are full of drunkenness and fornication.  We taught on repentance and sin.  One man, Junior Saydee, fell to his knees with fear and trembling.  In repentance he said, “I am guilty of all these teachings.  I have caused many troubles in this village including my own wife and children.  I hide my sin, drink and smoke drugs.”  The teaching was followed by singing, dancing and eating together.

From the village of Ma Esther:   Here we found drunkenness, fighting, stealing and fornication.  We taught on repentance, sin and demons.  No one repented.  We will return and continue to witness to them.  There is no church.

From the town of Tarwoken:  We have been visiting Tarwoken.  Many of the town have given themselves completely to Christ.  The regional satanic leader heard of it and came to the town. He said that they had broken from the traditions.  Nearly all the men were forced to pay 1 goat and ½ bag of rice.  The leader, Sam Kiyeah, was forced to pay a cow and 1 bag of rice.  The women and children fled to the nearby villages.  The leaders continue to preach and teach in the nearby villages.  Sam was once a leader of this demonic society.  He accepted Christ in 2013 during one of our mission trips.  He is requesting a megaphone so he can spread the words of God to other villages.

From the village of Pourhyonnoh:  The villagers are very happy with our teaching and asked us to continue to come with more teaching.  They are now ready to start constructing a church building.  It will be a regional church for the surrounding villages.

From the village of Neplubo:  This village is small comprised of mostly the elderly and has no church.  Repentance and baptism was taught and Elizabeth Slajah was baptized.  They encouraged our team to always visit them. 

Prayer requests:  Pray for a great revival to sweep through this country, pray that Liberia will have a healthy church in every village in our generation, and pray for our leaders who truly suffer for the Gospel.

“Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance.  The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.”
