39 students completed our two week Level One Class. In this class they were taught how to be a disciple of Christ and how to make disciples for Christ.
Short Testimonies of those returning from missions:
The Church of Vleyee Town - Vleyee Town was churchless before Victor Cole arrived. Victor is one of our trained filed leaders. He is unschooled, barely able to read and his leg is badly deformed from polio. He spent over 6 months going to them evangelizing, discipling and rising up leaders. With Victor they have been able to start a church. We recently sent a team into the town to daub their new church building (that is packing mud into the walls of sticks and bamboo). This is their report: We arrived in Vleyee safe. We all celebrated together for the rice and supplies provided by WSL. The next morning our team, united with the church, went to work, we were 23. By noon the daubing work had been completed. The church thanked WSL for making them powerful to combat against Satan. While we were resting, eating and celebrating a hunter arrived and reported that people in the bush were arguing and making plenty of noise saying that the church in Vleyee was too strong and that they must continue to fight against it. The pastor said, “We will continue to fight against them in Jesus name.” The total cost for this church building was less than $75.
One field leader reports: I presented the mission of WSL and taught “Life’s Purpose” and “Baptism”. Mr. Zayzay said that he wanted to be baptized. With joy we went down to the water. We met some people there washing clothes. I asked if there was anyone that needed to be baptized. One man answered I am not a Christian but a Muslim. So I told him the Good News of Jesus, taught him about baptism and with many other words warned him. I told him that no one else died for you, that only Jesus came and died for your sins and will forgive your sins and that through him only you can be saved. Francis Passoway believed and agreed. He was baptized along with Samuel Ceasar.
We were 3 on 2 motorbikes with load. We traveled 5 hours on bad road till we arrived in Fish Town. The next morning we pick up 2 more disciples and traveled 3 more hours deep into the forest. We found an old destroyed bridge. One of the team said, “I think we can rebuild it.” We took off our loads and used our rubber straps to tie wood together. Carefully we pushed our bikes across, and then broke down the bridge, removed our rubber and retied our loads. The people in the next village were shocked to see us on bikes. We parked our bikes in that village and walked another hour to the village of Chegboken. It was decimated. People from the other villages heard that we had arrived and came from all around. A canoe filled with those coming wrecked in the water. They lost their bags but no one drowned. We had a two day workshop. The people were very encouraged. The oldest man said, “This teaching was very clear. You guys spoke the wisdom of old.” Another said, “We have heard the truth that was hidden from us.” They requested that we return with more teaching. On our return home we had to rebuild the bridge.
|Broken church building|
The words of the town elder, “We were having church here till the pastor died. The church building broke down. We need a church in the town. WSL has reawaken Christianity in our town. We are happy to come back to God. Help rebuild a church for us.”
A 12 year old girl gave testimony that she was a part of the 666 Dark World. Someone spoke to her in her sleep telling her she needed to change and follow God. Now she is no longer a part of them and only looks up to God. She said, “The way WSL carry God’s word to us is very good. WSL teachings are very understandable.” She wants us to pray for her and continue to come to her.
Stanley Wright:Field leaders Stanley and Willimena Wright, husband and wife, gave this report. “We went into a new village. It was very difficult to work in spreading the Good News. There was no sleeping place or a place to even purchase a piece of bread. But, we taught 5 people the lesson on salvation. That night we found an abandoned hut to sleep in.”
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. Please make this a regular item in your regular prayers.
