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. 

The support of other Christian organizations, American volunteers, and donors allow us to take the gospel of our Lord to the lost, to the unreached tribes and to train pastors.

Our second printing press arrived:

The arrival of this press was made possible because of the unity of our Lord’s people! Lee Trisler, Ben Honaker and others rebuilt, cleaned, prepared, and shipped the, 900 pound, press to Christian Aid Ministries (CAM) dock on the East Coast. CAM then put it into a container that was transported across the sea in a ship. CAM is a large worldwide Christian missionary organization. CAM then shipped it to their warehouse in Liberia. They stored it, transferred it to their truck and hauled it to the Missionary Aviation Fellowship (MAF) hangar at no charge. MAF loaded it on their plane and flew it to our Zwedru base. After it arrived in Zwedru our leaders picked it up, loaded it on a truck that brought it to our base. We now have a much needed second press. Thank you to all who were involved! The together the videos are 3:15 seconds long.

ITEC (Indigenous People’s Technology and Education Center):

ITEC has come to us and trained us 4 times. They have trained us in dental tooth extraction, optical and video production. On this visit they trained us in mechanical. We now have on every one of our 7 bases a mechanically trained leader with tools. They are now competently trained to repair our generators and motorbikes. Below is a 3-minute video of our training.

LN4 Foundation and Ana DeCarvalho:

The LN4 Foundation has shipped us prosthetic hands in the past. The picture below, are barrels with 200 more prosthetic hands to be delivered to our base in Sierra Leone. In Sierra Leone’s past barbaric war, rebels cut off hundreds of limbs. We share the gospel; we also compassionately meet critical needs of the people. Ana DeCarvalho has been packing and sending us barrels full of supplies for several years. Thank you LN4 and Ana!

World Missionary Press:

For many years WMP has been sending us free Bibles and evangelistic tracts. Now on ship, crossing the ocean, is 6,800 pounds, over 141,000, items that include Bible tracts, discipleship material and French Bibles. They are being shipped through the services of CAM, mentioned above, and will be flown by MAF to our Zwedru base.

Motorbikes have arrived: 

The bikes have been sent to all our 7 bases in 4 countries. The bikes are our calvary. The 4 hooved transporter of warriors of old has been replaced with two wheels (unfortunately bikes don’t graze, gas here is $8 a gallon!). Because of these bikes we are able to transport our warriors of God. This month our warriors boldly advanced into the strongholds of Satan, going on 188 missions, into 208 communities baptizing 155. The bikes come in crates we have to put them together.

The fruit of His Worldwide, United Church

Testimonies from our bases:

A new church under the trees:
“A Church has been birthed in Makonde Village with 27 in attendance. Currently the are meeting under trees. Later we will assist them in building construction. Let us pray for the newly created church to have a place of worship and that a passionate leader would arise.” They are of the unreached Tenme-Banta tribe. The video is 1:20 seconds long.

“Good day, brethren in the Lord. Our Lord is doing miracles in the lives of many people of the Muslim unreached tribes. We showed the Jesus Film, in their language, last evening just a few miles from our base. 5 gave their lives to Christ. To my surprise one called, the next morning, and said that they were ready to be baptized. The surprise is that former Muslims are calling us, asking us to come and baptize them. We immediately came, and ended up baptizing 10.” 

“We went to a remote churchless village of the Tenme-Banta tribe to show the Jesus film, in their language. The rain destroyed our ability to complete the showing. As we were hastily packing the equipment, the imam (Muslim spiritual leader) came to us, and asked us to return and finish the show. Of course, with joy, we granted his request.”

“Praise God, for the safe return of our trained disciples. They were three days on mission, visiting 9 churchless villages. 34 were baptized. In one of the villages the 87-year-old town chief gave his life to Christ and was baptized. Be in prayer with us as we battle against the kingdom of darkness.” 

“We are showing the Jesus Film in front of a mosque. The imam is furious. But there is nothing he can do because all 56 of the villagers are happily watching the film, in their local language. They are from the Futha unreached tribe.”

“We went to a very remote town. It took 3 hours off the road to reach them. We were received with joy. The town chief said that people hardly ever reach them. It was a wonderful time sharing God’s word. Thank God for His guidance and direction.”

A new church among the Tenme-Banta unreached Muslim tribe: 
The video is 1:15 seconds long.

We build the roof; they build the walls:

In Liberia we say, “I wash your back, you wash your belly.” The congregation should build their building. But sometimes new churches in third world countries need a little help. So, we will put up the roof and they will put up the walls. The cost of a church roof is about $600. The men make the dirt block and the women carry them. The video is 1:15 seconds long.

Participate with us in praise and prayer:

  • Pray: For our indigenous missionary teams, that they will continue to fearlessly, boldly and sacrificially advance the gospel into the unreached tribes.
  • Pray: For our new indigenous missionary team to Guinea. They are going to 2 unreached, Christian-less tribes. Pray that our Lord will reveal where they shall establish their base.
  • Pray: For us we 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.
