Our on-site leaders and the donations of churches and individuals from abroad are bringing in a great harvest. We need the unity of us all, His Church, to accomplish our Lord’s command to reach the world. Thank you for your active love and faith. Thank you for sacrificing with us.
“Jesus sent out with the following instructions… “Do not get any gold or silver or copper to take with you in your belts — no bag for the journey or extra shirt or sandals or a staff… “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. you will…be flogged… When they arrest you, do not worry.” Matt 10:5-19. “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.” Acts 13:47. “You are the light of the world… In the same way, let your light shine before others.” Matt 5:14-16
Below is an interview with Victoria Toteh. She is illiterate, single, has 5 children, is unemployed and lives in extreme poverty. Yet, she will be without excuse when she stands before our Lord in judgement. At her judgement, I believe He will say, “Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ Matthew 25:21.
Victoria’s English may be a little hard to understand but I believe you will understand most of it. This video is a little longer than others I send. It is 8 ¾ minutes long. I know people are busy and don’t want long videos, so I painfully chopped out much of her story.
We received a donation of 200 prosthetic hands from the LN4 Foundation. They have donated to us before. During West African civil wars, the rebels commit atrocities to humanity that cause me to cringe. Their common terrorist brutality was to cut off hands and arms of innocent surviving residents after massacring a village. Those who were dismembered would then run to the next village seeking help and telling them to run that the rebels were coming. Today there are hundreds that have survived with appendages removed. No organization, that I know of, is doing anything to assist them. Wordsower Africa is responding with the love of Christ. As we assist and share the saving gospel of our Lord. The 2 ½ minute video and pictures below are a testimony of love.
Testimonies from our bases
The testimonies below come from our indigenous missionary bases. These bases are strategically located in the midst of resistant, unreached tribes. In the regions of our bases are towns that have never had churches. In the midst of these strongholds, we are seeing salvations. We then baptize, disciple and start churches.
From Field leaders on our main Zwedru base, Liberia:
“I am praying for Grand Kru county. Praying for intensive discipleship and trainings. We are committed to get to the bottom of the county. No stopping until we get to the entire county, we are the powerful field leaders of Wordsower Africa.”
From our indigenous missionary team in Sierra Leone:
“Tonight 26 people were baptized in a churchless community. Thank you, Jesus, for your direction and guidance upon us. Always send us Lord, we are available, we are your servants and soldiers.”
“Thanks, and appreciation to the family of Wordsower for the church building.” Sent from the Makondeh village church.
“At the conclusion of a town hall meeting with the elders and community, of a churchless town, called Malai, they agreed to provide two plots of land to be used for church purposes free of charge. Glory be to God! We are moving, the gospel is advancing.”
From our indigenous missionary team in Grand Capemont County, Liberia:
We had decided to erect a new roof for a house church that had outgrown their house (we do the roof they do the walls and floor). That same hour I received a messenger text from a woman that had never donated before. She said she wanted to make a donation to build a church. It was confirmed, by our Lord, that she knew the voice of God and was an obedient servant. It was also confirmed that our Lord supported our decision to put up a church roof.
“Brother Musa Kiazolu was wounded during the war. Rebels cut off his hand. He's been in this situation since the nineties during Taylor's war, over 30 years ago. Musa has been hoping and praying for such an opportunity like this. He now has the use of his arm.”
“Our level 3 training ended yesterday. Three Muslims attended the training and one was baptized from Kankar Town. The story of this lady is very sorrowful. She called me last night crying on the phone telling me that the entire town was against her, swearing and abusing her the whole of last night. This is the same lady that became Christian earlier. Her husband abandoned her with five children. We have been assisting her. We need your prayers and support so the family will reconsider their actions and let her be! God bless you all.”
Thank you! Every donation is important. The work is accomplished by the unity of us all. You are giving unto the Lord. Whether it is large or small that isn’t what is important. But to give as our Lord leads, as He compels each of us. That is what is important.
Participate with us in praise and prayer:
- Praise: We received and have started fitting prosthetic hands
- Pray: For increased donations so that we may continue to advance into the strongholds of Satan
- Pray: For our indigenous missionary teams, that they will continue to fearlessly, boldly and sacrificially advance the gospel into the unreached tribes.
- Pray: As we prepare to create and send another indigenous missionary team to the Muslim unreached tribes of Sierra Leone.
- 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.
