Kelvin and Sarah are engaged to be married on February 8th!!!
Would anyone like to contribute to help them meet their costs? I know they still have a lot to take care of.
Kelvin found his jewel!
Kristine and Karen met Sarah on their last trip to Liberia in 2019. What a sweetheart!
Kelvin is our Farm Manager and has worked long hard hours on this project digging garden beds for organic vegetables. We really appreciate his efforts. We call it “Growing Health” and training others to do the same on their small garden plots.
Sarah is the perfect woman for Kelvin. She is beautiful inside and out. Sarah has a strong faith in God and is a great encouragement to Kelvin. He found a gem!
I’m so excited that I will be there for their wedding. I know they have a lot to do yet to get ready for their big day.
On the streets of Monrovia, you will see the blind begging for food. Their children lead them. They will go to the windows of cars, hoping someone will show pity on them. They are hungry and desperate.
For sometime now, Daniel Coleman, our Director for Mercy Ministry has been asking if we could please do something to help the blind and their children. Could we bring them rice and soup mix? Could we help their children get to school? On October the 4th we took a leap of faith, and started our first outreach to the blind and their families. They were so grateful! They were so touched!
Children lead their parents to the streets. These children are not in school. Their parents are too poor.
Daniel Coleman has his arms around two blind men letting them know we brought rice and soup mix.
This boy leads his dad to the streets hoping to get something to eat.
Daniel has a heart of compassion. He is full of mercy and kindness.
” 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, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me…. whatever you did for one of the least of these … you did it for Me … words of Jesus
With your donation we CAN BUY MORE BAGS OF RICE both for our widows and for the blind and their families.
Provision of Hope’s Farm is beginning to harvest vegetables. We had a beautiful crop of cucumbers, enough to sell some at the market. Next we will be harvesting tomatoes, peppers, egg plant and cassava. It all takes time. We are so pleased at the progress!
Kelvin, our farm manager and trainer, is busy picking cucumbers.
The surplus was sold at the market.
We continue to grow moringa and transplant it on the farm.
Eggplant is ready for transplanting.
We were all pleased with the yield considering this was our first crop.

Please join us in prayer! We are believing for miracles!
TELL CUMMINGS was taken to the JFK hospital and diagnosed with Hepatitis B. He is one of Eric and Kamah’s children. He has had treatment and today he can come home if his medical bills are paid. They will need our help for this. In Liberia they will keep you in the hospital until the bills get paid. PRAY for Tell. He needs a healing miracle to recover and be the strong boy we know him to be.
Tell is 14 yrs old and in Grade 10.
This is a photo of Ma Esther before she had a stroke.
Kamah has been staying with Tell while he receives treatment in hospital.
Pray for Ma Esther’s full recovery. She still has a long way to go!
Ma Esther was rushed to the ELWA hospital on September 14, to find out she had a brain hemorrhage. Thank God this did not happen at her home with the children, but rather at her missionary son’s house ( Emmanuel Davis) where they were having a family meeting. Emmanuel rushed her to the hospital immediately. This left her with numbness and inability to walk and talk. Each day at ELWA she was improving and soon discharged. Praise God for answering prayers to this point and for all who have been praying!! Please keep on praying! Ma Esther has a very supportive family who is taking very good care of her and they always have someone by her side. From ELWA she was taken to a health clinic for physio therapy. Each day she is able to move her limbs more and talk more clearly. Pray too for the children. They are taking this very hard. There are caregivers in the home. We still have Kuo our cook and Ma Esther’s helper as well as Lemuel the children’s tutor and help for the shop. Lucy Wolo just informed me that she is there too, helping with the children. She grew up in Ma Esther’s home and is the mother of David.
We sure appreciate those who donate. For sure once a week we are helping someone to hospital or a medical clinic who could not afford to pay a medical bill. This country is so poor!
Congratulations to Emmanuel Bougar who graduated with a BA in Theology at the AMEZU university! Your dream has come true! We are all so proud of you! You are a real help to the Word of Faith Bible Church. God bless you as you continue to serve. It is such a joy to see our youth reach their goals!
Well Done Emmanuel

A great achievement
Emmanuel lived with us through high school and graduated in 2013.
Thank you to those who funded Emmanuel through school. Without you this would not be possible. Emmanuel is deeply grateful!
With your donations we CAN HELP SO MANY STUDENTS GO TO SCHOOL.
Our staff have been very busy collecting report cards and registering over one hundred students to school. It’s often hard to decide where to draw the line, when so many are too poor to pay for their children’s schooling, especially our single mothers. If you know of anyone who is interested in sponsoring a child to school, we would love to hear from you.
So far we have not said yes to these ones. I decided to do a blog post and see if we get anyone interested in funding one of these children to school for this year or even a smaller donation towards a child’s schooling.
Andrew and Rose Wallace have 8 children they raise. Each one has their own story of how they lost their parents or their mother is too sick to raise them. Four of these children still need funds to go to school.
EVELYN Grade 3
PRINCE is in Kindegarten 2
Tenneh David, the widow of our late Abel Smith with her 3 children. Lovette is in Gr. 3, Melvin her late sister’s child is in Kindergarten 2 and Kelvin the youngest child could go to Preschool. Tenneh does not have the funds to put her children to school.
MELVIN in Kindegarten 2
BLESSING Grade 2
ANYNE is in preschool
LOVETTE Grade 2
LOVETTE Gr. 6 and VIOLA Gr. 7 Both girls are being raised by single mothers.
The average cost to register a student to school and pay their tuition for one year is $ 300. The cost does vary from school to school. Besides the tuition is the school costs of shoes, uniforms, book bags, copy books and pens. We allow $ 60 per child for school needs.
With your donations we CAN HELP SO MANY CHILDREN GO TO SCHOOL. Any amount towards schooling is greatly appreciated.
