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. We have spread across Liberia and are in
the neighboring countries where we evangelize, disciple and church plant. 

“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:35. We have an indigenous missionary team in Sierra Leone. During the war in Sierra Leone and Liberia the rebels cut off arms and hands to create terror. An unknown multitude were mutilated. We were given 34 prosthetic hands which we fitted on those in need. We know of 206 more that are needed. We show them love and compassion. We give them what they want so we can give them what they need. The need of all humanity is eternal salvation. 

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,” Matthew 25:35. We have an Ivorian refugee camp close to us. The UN no longer provides for the refugees, the refugees have to fend for themselves. Refugee camps are a place of suffering, hunger and unnecessary death. But can you imagine how much worse it would be for the blind and the lame? We go to the refugee camp and provide food assistance for the blind and the lame. 

Report from Sierra Leone:

Our indigenous missionary team is working with the Teneme-Banta tribe. It is the most unreached tribe of Sierra Leone. Most towns have more than one active mosque. Our team was led by our Lord to a specific town. They were allowed to do a day long training. 136 attended and afterwards several commitments to Christ were made and 10 were baptized.  A fellowship of believers has started. We show up in obedience. Our Lord has people prepared and waiting for His Disciples to come. Romans 10:14-15 says, “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” 

Disciples making disciples:

We evangelize and disciple. We have been doing this for 13 years. We are doing what Paul instructed Timothy to do, “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.” 2 Timothy 2:2. This is a testimony we received from disciples we have trained in the past. The team reported, “We bless God for His great work in our 2-day training. 72 persons attended and 11 were baptized.” It is not unusual for teams to hike for hours through water and dangerous conditions to share the gospel with the hard to reach. They call it, “the struggle”. The fruit of the struggle is salvations of the lost. It is worth the struggle. They do it often without financial compensation.  

Participate with us in praise and prayer:

  • Praise: We have finally finished our guest house. All are welcome to try it out. Free of charge!
  • Praise: A team from Valley Bible Church, in California, is coming to assist us in December
  • Praise: 2 American missionary trainees are with us.  Their purpose is to be trained as missionaries.  Their desire is to go, as missionaries, to the unreached tribes with the gospel. Max Kubik and Henry Combs have completed 5 months of their 7-month commitment. 
  • Praise: Our new indigenous missionary team to Guinea is preparing to be sent out to spy out the land, seeking for the place our Lord would have them settle. “Rejoice before the LORD your God at the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name.” Deut 16:11
  • 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: “Finally, our friends, pray for us that the Lord's message may continue to spread rapidly and be received with honor, just as it was among you. Pray also that God will rescue us from wicked and evil people; for not everyone believes the message.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2.

Dancing:

We are dancing, celebrating and filled with joy!!! Our prayers are being answered. A family has made a donation to start and fully cover our mission base in Guinea for 2 years. We prayed to start 3 new indigenous missionary bases to unreached tribes this year. Our prayers have been answered! This year we have started new bases in Gbarpolu County, in Liberia, that is going to 2 unreached tribes, a base in Sierra Leone going to the Teneme-Banta Muslim tribe and other unreached tribes. Now the last desired, and prayed for, base has been funded! It says in Luke 6:12, “Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. When morning came, he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them.  We have two of three families that will go.  Pray that our Lord will reveal to us the third family/single to go. The Guinea team will come to live with us for about 3 months, to receive specific training. During that time, they will be sent to spy out the land.  Pray that our Lord will reveal the specific unreached Muslim tribes we are to go to. Guinea is 86% unreached Muslim tribes.  


We desire your participation:

The Merchant Marines of WW2 were unsung heroes. They are the ones who brought supplies, across the ocean, from America to the front-line soldiers in Europe. Many of them were older retired navy, yet they continued in passionate sacrifice. They, in proportion to their size, lost more men than any branch of service. One out of every 24 perished, 1,554 of their ships were sunk. The war could not have been won without them. We too are in war, an even more significant war, they fought to end injustice and suffering on earth, we fight for the eternal salvation of the lost. But like the Merchant Marines our war cannot be won without those sacrificing to provide us with supplies. Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward.” Mark 9:41. You are giving us that cup of water. Your active faith, sacrifice and love is essential in this war effort and will be rewarded.


“He must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.”

It is 4:00 AM.  Our base is awake and active. The night before a team arrived, in the dark, soaked, bruised and covered in mud. They were driving our two best bikes. Immediately oil was checked and they were filled with gas, no time for cleaning or needed small repairs. Now, at 4:00 AM, two teams are putting on their loads to take the bikes back out. It is raining, lightning and thunder are observed. 12-15 hours of rain and deep mud is before them. Yet there is no reluctance, no complaining. Our passion to go to the unreached drowns out all such emotions. This is our way of life; it is common for us. But our teams are not without complaint. Their complaint is that there are not enough bikes and they are not able to also go. They are like stallions in the starting gate, ready to explode into the race, the race to reach the lost, before it is too late, “let us throw off everything that hinders… let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1. Many of our bikes are so broken down that we cannot send them out on far missions. Notice in the below pictures the mud on the bikes. In places, you can see the mud from the former trip hasn’t even dried.


Training the next generation:

The video below, less than 2 minutes, is of Henry Combs. He is one of Woodside Bible Church Global 100 interns. He is here with Max Kubik. They will be here a total of 7 months. They have come in great sacrifice. Our Wordsower Africa Boot Camp prepares those feeling called to become missionaries. 

In September we had trainings in each of our Wordsower Liberia bases that are located in the heart of the unreached tribes. Each class lasted 1-week. Mixed in every class were Muslims of the local unreached tribes. Several committed to Christ and renounced the Islamic religion. We are now discipling and assisting them in their transition. The pictures below are of our classes:

Participate with us in praise and prayer:

  • Praise: A team from Woodside Bible Church, in Michigan, is coming to assist us in November
  • Praise: A team from Valley Bible Church, in California, is coming to assist us in December
  • Praise: 2 American missionary trainees are with us.  Their purpose is to be trained as missionaries.  Their desire is to go, as missionaries, to the unreached tribes with the gospel. Max Kubik and Henry Combs have completed 5 months of their 7-month commitment. 
  • Praise: Our indigenous missionary team to Guinea has been completely funded for 2 years.
  • Pray: For Henry Combs, a Global 100 intern that is with us, he has kidney stones that are passing, very slowly. He is in great pain.
  • Pray: For our Lord to show us the place to send our Guinea team.
  • 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: “Finally, our friends, pray for us that the Lord's message may continue to spread rapidly 
  • and be received with honor, just as it was among you. Pray also that God will rescue us from 
  • wicked and evil people; for not everyone believes the message.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2.

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. We have spread across Liberia and are in
the neighboring countries where we evangelize, disciple and church plant. 

“And so, Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood. Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore. For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.” Heb 13:12-14. Jesus suffered outside the gate to make us holy, enduring great, disgrace and persecution unto death. He is our example and He has commanded for us to imitate Him, to complete His mission. We, also, are to go outside the gate carrying our cross in suffering, disgrace and persecution. We have been assigned, to go, to unite the lost with our Lord. We know that the unreached tribes do not want us, nor does the kingdom of Satan want us to enter his strongholds. Our Lord’s command is to take His gospel to all tribes, not just the ones who want us. Today, after 2,000 years, it is the resistant unreached tribes, who do not want us, that remain. 

Our two most powerful demonic strongholds are Animism and Islam. Animism is a religion. They believe that everything has a spirit.  They worship the spirits of the dead.  Each of the tribes and cultures have various practices and beliefs. The region of West Africa, that we are in, has a spiritual leader whose name is the “Devil”, who is also called “Santa Clause”. The spiritual leader governs the people with fear and has for centuries. Animism teaches the people how to live, performed various rituals like birth and funerals, marriages and divorce. They make sacrifices, sometimes human, to the spirits and fear curses and the power of witches. 

In every Animistic town or village, that we have entered, we have presented the gospel and it has always been well received. There is not one of these communities that does not want a church. In every community we enter there are salvations and baptisms. Many of them are now being discipled. Without exception, every Animistic town where we have entered, the satanic stronghold has crumbled!

The Islamic stronghold is much harder. Two of our testimonies below are examples:  

One of the toughest Muslim strongholds we had ever encountered is a town called Koneia (name changed).  We have gone into this town several times, but conflicts keep increasing. The first home that hosted us was warned never to host any Christian again. Sometime later, another man agreed to host our team but right after we left, he too was warned that if he loves his life, he should stop hosting Christians. The following week when we went to the town again. During our meeting with some of the town’s people, men came one after the other to ask us why we are having a Christian meeting in their town. We responded politely. Later an elderly woman came, she claimed that she owned the property, and told us to leave. We prayed with the people that were with us and then left. On August 24, which is a national holiday, we asked if we could have a friendly football match with them. The youth were excited, but the elders disagreed. The youth begged and insisted until finally the elders allowed us to play the game. That day was a joyful one. The girls played kickball while the boys played soccer. Our main intention was to have the opportunity to develop friendships with the youth. Many of the youth do not believe the religion of Islam. They want to become Christian but fear persecution. Please unite with us in prayer. Pray for a great revival in this region.

Maima has always spoken to us, in anger, arguing that Christianity is wrong. I told her that the Qur’an speaks about Jesus over 90 times. Then she started to attend our morning devotions, which is on our front porch. After one of our devotions, I spoke with her more about Jesus.  She said, “I have come to worship the God you serve. And today my mother put me out because I was worshipping with you. So, I’m with you and I give my life to Jesus today.”

Islam is a powerful satanic stronghold!! But there are those within that our Lord has prepared for salvation. We must fearlessly enter, even when opposed, to seek the lost, as commanded by our Lord. The Islamic communities initially resist us. But most will allow us to enter and have Bible studies with the few after continued advances. 

Participate with us in praise and prayer:

  • Praise: 2 American missionary trainees are with us.  Their purpose is to be trained as missionaries.  Their desire is to go, as missionaries, to the unreached tribes with the gospel. Max Kubik and Henry Combs have completed 4 months of their 7 month commitment.
  • Pray: “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:37-38.
  • Pray: There are 393 unreached tribes, 147 million souls, in West Africa. Pray that each person will hear the gospel. Pray that His Church will go to them in obedience.
  • 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: “Finally, our friends, pray for us that the Lord's message may continue to spread rapidly and be received with honor, just as it was among you. Pray also that God will rescue us from wicked and evil people; for not everyone believes the message.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2.

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. We have spread across Liberia and are inthe neighboring countries where we evangelize, disciple and church plant. 

Our teams continue to advance against Satan’s strongholds:

“From the days of John the Baptist until now now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.” Matt 11:12. In the month of July, we impacted over 6,000 people, resulting in many salvations and 112 being baptized. The Church of our Lord has been strengthened and enlarged. Below are a few of our many testimonies:

Our new Sierra Leone indigenous missionary team baptized 78 persons in one day last month. The town is of the Temene-Banta tribe. It is a tribe that has been reported as having no evangelical Christians. After the baptisms the town chief gave us land and permission to construct a church building. The new believers are now cutting trees for the construction of the church. This is historic! It will be the first time a church has ever been in the town.

Our indigenous missionary team in Gbaroplu County, Liberia is working with the unreached Mende Muslim tribe, it is a powerful stronghold of Satan.  Recently, they entered the town that is the Islamic tribe’s spiritual center. The town has a law: No Christians, No evangelism, and No churches. This law has been in affect for generations. After much prayer, our team entered and asked to have Christian services in the town. There was much opposition! The towns people came together and argued, heatedly, for long. But, praise God, they agreed to allow us to have a service on Friday. At the first service 13 attended! We now have permission to have two services a week one on Friday and one on Sunday.  They also gave us permission to show the Jesus Film. Again this is Historic! The Islamic spiritual center, the Mecca of the tribe, has allowed weekly Christian services.

Our indigenous missionary team in Lofa, Liberia, went to a town of an unreached tribe. The town had expelled all Christians. Everyone in their town had to attend the mosque or leave. The Christians left forming their own town across the river. The Islamic town also has the law: No Christians, No evangelism, and No churches! When our missionary team entered the Islamic town they were told to leave and go to the Christian town. Our team went to the Christians and taught them from the Bible. They were well received in the Christian town and were invited to return to teach them more. Every time our team visits the region they spend time in both towns. The Islamic town had never had a movie projected on a big screen before. So, out of curiosity, they agreed for our team to show the Jesus film, in their language. They loved the show and invited our team to return to show another Christian film. Compassion opens closed doors. Our next visit we will bring our optical kit. We will test their eyes for the right prescription and provide affordable, new, quality glasses, at our cost. Again, at their request, for the third time, we will show a Christian film. The pictures below are of river crossings:


The challenges of the road:

The pictures below show why we use motorbikes:

The below pictures are of a team on bush trails:

The bikes are dangerous. Usually there are several of our leaders, at a time, with wounds. Below is one of our leaders who was in an accident. She was returning home from a mission. All our leaders have been wounded most have scars and had broken bones.

Participate with us in praise and prayer:

  • Praise: 4 American missionary trainees are with us.  Their purpose is to be trained as missionaries.  Their desire is to go, as missionaries, to the unreached tribes with the gospel.
  • Pray: “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:37-38.

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. We have spread across Liberia and are in
the neighboring countries where we train, disciple and church plant. We use many different 
weapons as we advance the Kingdom of God within the strongholds of Satan.
 

Just Show up!  78 baptized in an unreached tribe!

Our new indigenous missionary team, which was sent into Sierra Leone, baptized 78 persons in one day.  Below is the report. This report has been made possible, in part, because of you, our overseas team, in unity with our on-ground team.  (I have changed the names of the towns and people for protection)

In 2020, we sent a team to the Temene-Banta tribe in Sierra Leone, to spy out the land and look for a potential base. According to the Joshua project, this Muslim unreached tribe is composed of 0.00% evangelical Christians. Our team conducted a series of trainings, visited several villages, and shared the gospel with hundreds of people within the tribe. Tracks, pamphlets, Bibles and our teaching lessons were given to them.  One of the places our team went to was the village of Moora.  Moora and all the villages around it have mosques, but no churches.  After a month of service, our team returned to our main base in Zwedru, Liberia. 

Last month, the team went back to the Temene-Banta tribe to establish their missionary base. To the team’s surprise, the news of their return spread as quickly as a brush fire. The villagers in Moora were overjoyed to receive them again. Of all the hundreds of villages and towns of this tribe, the Spirit of God had led the team to go to Moora on their first visit, and led them to return to Moora on their second.  Kpeyeh, the team leader said, “When we arrived in Moora, as is our custom, we taught the gospel from house to house. The people were impressed and moved by the Holy Spirit to be baptized. They asked us to meet with the Muslim town chief to request permission before baptizing.  To our utter surprise the town chief, who is also a member of the Muslim council, gave us permission to baptize them.  He also said that it was a good thing to have both a church and mosque in their town.” 

Kpeyeh continued, saying, “On Saturday, July 3, we went down to the water to baptize.  Again, to our surprise, I heard women, men and children shouting, “I WANT TO BE BAPTIZED"! A group of people came pouring out to us, into the creek, and we baptized them all with joy.” When they had finished, 78 persons, including three children of an Imam (an Imam is a Muslim spiritual leader) were baptized. A church has been birthed within the Temene-Banta unreached Muslim tribe by the power of the Holy Spirit!!!  Those that planned on being baptize were taught before baptism.  Those who came without being taught were taught afterwards.  All gave testimony of salvation before being allowed to be baptized. The new church has been turned over to a local man that we are training to pastor them. The town has given us property for a church building. We hope to start construction in August.

Our moto is, “Just show up!”  Our team came to this resistant, churchless, Muslim tribe in the same way the apostle Paul did on his missionary trips. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:1-4, “When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified… My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power.”  We just show up, and discover that our Lord has gone before us and prepared the harvest.  

This miracle was made possible because of our unity, faith, love and sacrifice. We have additional trained teams ready to be sent.  The next team we want to send into Guinea. 86% of Guinea is made up of unreached tribes.  The team is trained and ready to go.  They are waiting for the funding.

My questions are: Why has His Church not shown up before now, when a great harvest seems so easy?  And how many other such places exist, waiting for the church to come?

Our Lord said in Acts 13:47, “For this is what the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.” We, His Church, have been commanded to go to everybody, everywhere, with the gospel.  Wordsower Africa is going from village-to-village evangelizing and discipling.  Those who prove fruitful, faithful and willing are trained to form and be sent as indigenous missionary teams into the unreached tribes. We have teams in all 5 of the unreached tribes of Liberia. The nations boarding us, Guinea, Ivory Coast and Sierra Leone, have a total of 76 unreached tribes. May we, in unity, increase.  We can never say “enough”, as long as there are unreached tribes.    

Participate with us in praise and prayer:

  • Praise: 4 American missionary trainees are with us.  Their purpose is to be trained as missionaries.  Their desire is to go to the unreached tribes with the gospel.
  • Pray: “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:37-38.
  • Pray: There are 393 unreached tribes, 147 million souls, in West Africa. Pray that each person will hear the gospel. Pray that His Church will go to them in obedience.
  • 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: “Finally, our friends, pray for us that the Lord's message may continue to spread rapidly and be received with honor, just as it was among you. Pray also that God will rescue us from wicked and evil people; for not everyone believes the message.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2.

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. We have spread across Liberia and are in the neighboring countries where we train, disciple and church plant. We use many different weapons as we advance the Kingdom of God within the strongholds of Satan.

Introducing Max Kubik, 21 years old; Henry Combs, 21 years old; and Jared Hewines, 19 years old

These 3 men are part of the Global 100 team assembled by Woodside Bible Church from the Detroit region.  They have sacrificed to come!  Max and Henry will each stay 7 months and delay a semester of their college studies. Jared will stay 3 months.

The assignment given to Wordsower Africa by the Global 100 team is to “confirm their call”.  Each of these young men have felt the call of our Lord to become missionaries.  Well, that is easy to say while setting in an Easy-boy chair, sipping a coke, with air-conditioning, in America.  The test is, can they endure the hardships and sufferings of “Wordsower Boot Camp”! Already they have prepared and eaten an African ground hog, eaten monkey, porcupine, chicken feet and bugs. They are learning to live without in-house electric and running water. They have ministered in a refugee camp, a prison, drug yards, and isolated villages.  Even now, Henry is with a team in a gold camp, a modern Sodom and Gomorrah, ministering and sharing the gospel of our Lord to the lost.

Recently, Jared was dropped off with two Liberians deep into the rainforest.  They walked for hours going from village to village.  When they arrived in the villages, they taught the Gospel of our Lord and other Bible teachings.  While in between villages, walking the trail, they came across a man named Solomon.  They stopped him and shared the gospel with him.  He confessed that he was the violent regional Devil (the Animistic religion is a demonic religion that believes in voodoo, spirit worship, witchcraft, and curses. Their Spiritual leader is called the Devil).  Solomon professed that he believed the gospel that was presented to him. He said that he wanted to become a Christian and be baptized, thereby leaving his religion and his position as the Devil. The team left him with a promise to return the next day and bring him to our base.

The next day, Solomon was ready and waiting to come to our base.  When he arrived, we again shared with him the gospel.  He prayed, confessed his sin, and asked Jesus to be the Lord of his life. After we heard his testimony and profession of faith in Christ, Jared taught him about baptism, and we then proceeded to go to the creek and baptize him. From his confession, it was obvious that Solomon had been experiencing demon possession before the Lord brought him to us. He had received the position of the Devil from his father, and it had been handed down from father to son for many generations. His conversion is a devastation to a major stronghold of Satan. Praise God!

After Solomon was baptized, he was taken back to his village so that he could testify to his family and the community that he had become a Christian and was baptized. This was a very bold act of faith. For a person to leave the position of the Devil, it is supposed to be a death sentence.  But Solomon boldly proclaimed to his family and village that he had become a Christian and that he was leaving his position as the Devil.  Imagine Jared, a 19-year-old, sheltered American suburbanite, was used as an instrument by our Lord to devastate a stronghold of Satan. Jared has proven himself to be a fearless, faith-filled, sacrificial warrior. Today he is training on the frontlines. One day, we pray, he will be a frontline commander, and that our Lord will continue to use him to destroy the strongholds of Satan!!!

These three young men are experiencing firsthand the life of a missionary in a third-world country, deep in the rainforest of Liberia. In the few weeks they have been here, they have experienced and been taught much. They are learning to lean on our Lord for their strength, fearlessly going into the unknown to share the gospel of our Lord with the lost! We hope and pray that there will be others who will come and also be trained. If you feel that our Lord is calling you to become a missionary, then you are surely welcome. 

Hearts broken:

Here in Liberia, they say “the death news is too much.” We constantly hear of loved ones dying young. This month we buried the young wife of one of our indigenous missionaries.  After the birth of their baby girl, she started having chest pains and breathing difficulties. We took her to all of the capital city’s best hospitals, but they were unable to diagnose the problem. We then took her to another hospital out of the capital city. After almost a year of pain and suffering she passed away, leaving the father, Messiah, with a 1-year-old and a 3-year-old. One of the injustices of poverty is undiagnosed and untreated illness that results in preventable death. Imagine, one of the biggest killers here is malaria, which can be treated with one dollar’s worth of medicine. 

We continue to advance:

We now have indigenous missionary teams living among and bringing the gospel to all 5 unreached tribes of Liberia. We also have a base in Ivory Coast that is going to the unreached tribes of that country. Our teams continue to send reports of salvations and church plants. And right now, a team of Liberian indigenous missionaries are preparing to go to Sierra Leone to bring the gospel of Christ to unreached tribes in that country.

Participate with us in praise and prayer:

  • Praise: The three American trainees have arrived safe and are going on many missions.
  • Pray:  Please pray for their safety. Pray that the Holy Spirit will fill them, train them and use them.
  • Pray: There are 393 unreached tribes, 147 million souls, in West Africa. Pray that we can send and train teams to go into these tribes. Pray about participating in the financial need to send them. 
  • 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: “Finally, our friends, pray for us that the Lord's message may continue to spread rapidly and be received with honor, just as it was among you. Pray also that God will rescue us from wicked and evil people; for not everyone believes the message.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2.

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. We have spread across Liberia and are in the neighboring countries where we train, disciple and church plant. We use many different weapons as we advance the Kingdom of God within the strongholds of Satan.

The below, 2 ½ minute, video is part of the training we do as we prepare and send out disciples.  Our Lord trained, empowered and sent His disciples.  We follow His example.  Our students attend 4 levels of training each is 70 hours.  Matthew 28:18-20 our Lord commands His disciples to Go, Make disciples, Baptize and Teach.  Well, you can’t learn to baptize without getting wet!  In this video they are doing real baptisms and serving communion.  They are sent out trained and empowered.


The, 2 ½ -minute, video is of our 12-year anniversary.  Wordsower Africa (formerly Wordsower Liberia) has been in existence for 12 years.  This is the first time we have celebrated our anniversary.  People came from 8 counties and 2 countries.

This month I want to highlight our leaders and disciples.  Most of our disciples have about 3 – 6 grade education, only a few have passed high school, many can’t even read.  All are extremely poor!!  Almost none are employed.  The total accumulated wealth of each, for the majority, is $100 - $1,000.  Their waking concern is food, medical, rent and the education of their children. Yet, as I think about them, with the greatest honor and respect. the verses below exemplify them.



Our leaders are so much like Peter and John.  Peter according to church history was illiterate, and John was only a little more educated.  They were very poor, in Acts 3:6, Peter and John were together and Peter said to the lame beggar, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”  Great faith accompanied their poverty and limited education.  And courage, they stood and defied the Sanhedrin the same religious rulers that had just crucified Christ.  The Sanhedrin, “saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.” Acts 4:13.  Our leaders have defied false religious leaders and been threatened with death, been beaten, one was beaten and stripped naked. 

“Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him?  They are poor in worldly wealth and possessions but are rich in faith!” Jas 2:5.  I will, with joy, exchange the riches of the world for the rich faith I see in them.

1 Cor 1:26-28 “Brothers, think of what you were when you were called.  Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth.  But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.  He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things… to nullify the things that are.”  These passages are our leaders defined.  They go out to the resistant, remote unreached peoples and “Nullify the things that are,” by destroying the strongholds of Satan.  

“As servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; in beatings; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger… with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors; known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.” 2 Cor 6:4-10. The extreme sacrifice, suffering, hardships, and the terrible pain we endure is overshadowed by our joy, contentment and lasting fruit.  Psalms 126:6 says, “He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.”

Recently 2 separate mission teams drove over 20 hours straight on dangerous bad roads, in rain.  They laid in the bush to sleep a little before continuing several more hours on the bikes. No bug repellant, no bed roll, they just lay directly on the ground in the bush.  All of us have scars, wreaked, been damaged, most have had broken bones heal without medical assistance, all been scared by muffler burns and wreaks. All have been hungry, sick, fevered, slept on the ground, yet returned filled with joy!  Rejoicing that we have been chosen. We stitch our own when cut, we treat the wounds and provide medicine for the sick.  None have ever said, “No more, it is too hard, I quit.”  Just the opposite not only do they return, with increased passion, when able, but they bring others to join in the mission.   There are very, very few from the first world nations that would volunteer to work beside them.  They are special, ordained, anointed warriors. 

Acts 17:26, “From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.”  Sometimes I think of God as a strategic general of war who sends His best soldiers into the toughest battles, challenges and environments.  These here, who are poor, weak and uneducated have been especially chosen by our Lord to be in Liberia at this time for such a time as this.  I am amazed, honored, humbled and privileged to be beside these gallant chosen warriors.






Participate with us in praise and prayer:

  • Praise: Answered prayer!!!!  We have been praying for funding so that we can send a missionary team to Sierra Leone.  We now have the funding!!  The team will go in June to establish their base among the unreached Teneme-Banta tribe that is said to have no Christians.     
  • Pray: We can never say enough until everyone of the 393 unreached tribes, 147 million souls, have a missionary team within.  Pray that teams in West will will fund and send indigenous missionary teams to these unreached tribes.  $1,500 a month will fund an indigenous missionary team.
  • 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: “Finally, our friends, pray for us that the Lord's message may continue to spread rapidly 
  • and be received with honor, just as it was among you. Pray also that God will rescue us from 
  • wicked and evil people; for not everyone believes the message.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2.
