Off to Liberia
TOMORROW JANUARY 26TH WE ARE LEAVING FOR LIBERIA! I AM GETTING SO EXCITED NOW THAT IT IS HARD TO SLEEP. I HAVE A DEEP LOVE FOR THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION.
I am looking forward to our 7th trip into Liberia and to the Buduburam Refugee Camp in Ghana.
Liberia I am so glad you are at peace! It’s been a delight to work in this field for the passed seven years. If I have anything to say, it is that “my boast is in the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth” God alone is the Faithful One ! “Faithful is He who calls you, who also will do it”
I have watched God go before us over and over. We have seen miracle after miracle!
None of this would be happening if it wasn’t for the hundreds of people who care for the poor and the needy. So many people have given of their time, their talents, their resources, and their prayers! All I can say is may God abundantly bless you in return for your kindness to the least of these. All Glory goes to Our Father, the one who first loved us…oh, how I love you Jesus and I love how you love the poor!
Samuel Mwangi is coming from Kenya. He is the founder of Destiny Bible College in Kenya and oversees many other Bible colleges in various nations of Africa. Samuel is affiliated with Bethel Ministries in Redding, CA He comes embracing the heart of the Father and spends his life raising up sons and daughters wherever he goes. His passion for God is infectious as he walks a kingdom lifestyle.
“The blind are seeing the deaf are hearing”
“There is nothing impossible with God!”
“God is in a good mood, hahahahaha!!”
I have not met this man face to face, but in my spirit I feel like I know him well.
Samuel will be our main speaker at our conference LET YOUR KINGDOM COME. He will meet with our leadership to lay the foundation for a SCHOOL OF THE SUPERNATURAL.
Kristine Riley lives in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada. She worked in office administration for 30 years, mostly in the real estate industry. Kristine is the author of a newly published book called “The Story of Henrietta Caterpillar.” She is bringing many copies with her for the children of Liberia and Ghana.
“It is an expression of the beauty and uniqueness of each individual life and an inspiration to all children to develop the love, gifts and talents that God has given to each of them.”
Kristine goes into Elementary Schools to share her story and the kids all love it!
For more information about ordering her book go to www.byheavensdesign.ca
Kristine knew she would one day be going to Africa. God told her to start a travel fund, for that purpose. She met Karen Barkman early this past November and just knew this was the right time!
Elaine Caudle is an RN who joins us from Texas.
She has been involved in Liberia since her first visit in 2004. Elaine served on the Mercy Ship in in Liberia and has sponsored many students to school, including Momo Bai and Marcus Jamel who both graduated with degrees from Cuttington University this past June.
Elaine has been a real support and inspiration in this work. The Liberian people love her!
She is a Bible Teacher in her community, and will be one of our speakers at the conference we are having in the Buduburam Refugee Camp in Ghana. Elaine comes with a strong faith and a positive outlook. What a blessing to have her join us this year! “Mom Elaine your boys cannot wait to see you!”
