The above report is made possible by a united sacrificial team here and abroad.  Only in the unity of us all can the above be a reality and even increase.  Looking at the above report you see that we are busy.  We have spread across this country trained disciples and church planters.  

Romans 10:2 says, “I can assure you that they are deeply devoted to God; but their devotion is not based on true knowledge. They have not known the way in which God puts people right with himself, and instead, they have tried to set up their own way; and so they did not submit themselves to God's way of putting people right.”  What Paul said about his Israelite family we can also say about most of Liberia, Ivory Coast and the multitudes of West Africa.  There is a great devotion for God here but it is not based on true knowledge.  So, the result is a religious creation full of false teaching.  We, Wordsower Africa, go throughout the country of Liberia and Ivory Coast teaching and preaching from village to village as modeled by our Lord, Mark 1:38-39.  The older version of the NIV says in Matthew 11:12, “From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.”  We, His Church, must be forcefully advancing, fearlessly busting through the gates of Satan’s strongholds to “snatch some from the flames.”  It is a true war and should be treated as such.  The video below is our cavalry of bikes forcefully advancing through the gates of Satan’s strongholds.  The video is less than 3 minutes.

This month we had several Bible training classes in Ivory Coast and Liberia.  We had three 2 week classes attended by 137.  We had four 2-day Bible trainings attended by 121 and a one day Bible training attended by 53.  The harvest is plentiful and the harvesters are prepared and obedient.  In Matthew 28:18-20 our Lord commands us, His disciples, to go, make disciples of all nations, to baptize and to teach.  It seems most often we understand the section about baptizing to mean that we should be baptized, which is true, but the command is that we should be baptizers. In our classes, we teach disciples how to go, how to make disciples, how to baptize and how to teach.  Christ’s example was to train, empower and release.  We follow His example. The video below is 3 ½ minutes.
We receive invitations to teach from all over Liberia, Ivory Coast and the bordering countries.  We receive requests for Bibles and training material daily.  We are not able to keep up with the invitations and requests.  These are good problems but problems none the less.  We have outgrown our buildings on our Zwedru, Liberia base.  Our class room is overcrowded and our sleeping rooms are wall to wall mattresses.  Our Lord is blessing our obedience and sacrifice with an increase of fruit, fruit that will last.  

We now have an indigenous missionary team reaching two unreached tribes, we have a second team on our base training to be sent to another two unreached tribes and a third team waiting to be sent to the last two unreached tribes of Liberia.

Now we have teams out that are assisting in the construction of church buildings.  After disciples are trained they are to form fellowships.  They often outgrow the house and need a larger building.  As we were with them in training we are also with them as they grow.

Participate with us in praise and prayer:
  • Praise: Our schools are back in session and our classes are full.   
  • Praise: The virus has not entered the SE of Liberia with force.
  • Pray: For the funding of a third team to go to the last 2 unreached tribes in Liberia where we do not have an indigenous missionary team. 
  • Pray: For our team in Ivory Coast.  The church there is so corrupt, cold and hardhearted. Also, they have 36 unreached tribes of 7 million.
  • Pray:  We have outgrown our Bible school building and our available sleeping rooms.  We need additional buildings for student housing and a larger school building.
  • Pray: Please pray for our safety as we continue to boldly and fearlessly march into and live within the strongholds of Satan to, “snatch others from the fire and save them.” Jude 1:23.
  • Pray: For increased donations.  Our neighbors, Sierra Leone and Guinea, are asking us to start this ministry in their country also. They have many unreached tribes of millions.
100% of all donations go to the mission. None is used for administration. Tax-deductible receipts will be sent each January.
