WSL is in Crisis:
A great tragedy has occurred within WSL. Don and I, the American team of WSL in Liberia, are filled with sorrow and shame to have to make this report. When you donate, you put your trust in us to see that your donation is used for our mission to see a healthy church in every village and town of Liberia.
One of our Liberian board members who has been with us for 7 years was caught stealing from WSL. His name was on our bank account and did the banking for our Bong County branch. He stole $3,800 USD before he was caught. He has been removed from our board and from WSL completely.
Our board in the USA has discontinued sending ministry money (they are continuing to send food money to our team) until a complete audit can be completed throughout all 3 of our bases. WSL was shut down for most of August and all of September. We do not know when our investigation will be complete. In order to protect you, the donors, investments in the ministry here in Liberia WSL will continue to be shut down until this investigation has been completed.

WSL has elected two new board members, Nayford George and Nestor Towah. They are spiritual fathers with a long proven track record of faithfully serving God. They have both been working as pastors for many years, they have evangelized, discipled, and started churches. Their character has been proven over the years to be trustworthy. They have met the qualifications of an elder. We believe that they will assist in leading us under the headship of Christ, our Savior.
Welcoming Daniel Park:
Daniel, from Woodside Bible Church in Michigan, has come to live and minister with us for a year. He is 23 years old and a graduate of Oakland University with a degree in marketing. He believes our Lord has called him as a full time missionary. His passion is to start churches in an unreached people group. The purpose of spending a year here is for us to train him as a missionary.
|A few of our sponsored children meeting for prayer before school|
This month our ministry in Gbarnga, Bong County, assisted 52 children with their school fees and school uniforms. Also these 52 children received daily food and other assistance as needed.
Pray for WSL we are under great sorrow at the loss of our board member because of his sin of embezzlement. Pray that our Lord will reveal additional corruptions if they exist as we do an in depth investigation. 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.
