PASTORS' TRAINING Twenty two village pastors benefited from three days of quality instructional and bonding times in Liberia. The training which lasted for three days, July 10-12, 2018, covered Bible Doctrines; Preaching Principles and Methods; Pastoral Leadership; Evangelism; and Discipleship. It was held at Mt. Sinai Prayer Garden, near Liberia’s main capital, Monrovia. All twenty two pastors are in active ministries with at least five years of full time pastoral service. However, none of the pastors had the opportunity to acquire formal biblical training. This training was the first of its kind for them, and they indicated that it was an “eye opening experience” and the very first “significant pastoral empowerment” program they have ever been introduced to. In their feedback, they overwhelmingly expressed their need for additional training.
OUTREACH TO ORPHANS We visited fifty children and are considering enrolling an additional twenty five into our scholarship program. With more funding, we desire to regularize their feeding and healthcare support.
HOPE CENTER Construction work at the HOPE Center is ongoing. The first six classroom school building is at roof level and the foundation for the manager’s house is nearly at completion. Upon completion of these two units, we will begin work on the first dormitory for the kids.
