Community Tidiness Care
COMMUNITY TIDINESS CARE is a new program that Daniel Coleman initiated. This is a group of volunteer workers who go from community to community collecting garbage. Look at these photos! What a difference they are making to the streets of Lower New Matadi and other communities in Monrovia. This is awesome!
This Team has 18 youth who “volunteer” for 5 hrs on Saturdays picking up garbage and hauling it to designated disposal sites. They start at 8:00 am and finish at 1:00 pm. Daniel Coleman is the Project Manager. He is a senior university student living at the Discipleship Training Center and studying Criminal Law. It is great to see our Youth Leaders contributing to their communities and modelling this to their younger brothers. Yesterday’s orphans have become today’s leaders!
Garbage invites flies which carry germs that are responsible for causing diseases like dysentry, food poisoning, conjunctivitis and typhoid.
Paul Barchue is one of our Gr. 12 students who is part of this program. Patrick Goh graduated last year and is presently taking computer courses. He has just registered at Stella Maris to study Social Work. Patrick came from the Buduburam Refugee Camp in Ghana when he was 16. Provision of Hope helped him resettle in Liberia, along with his mother and sibblings.
Frank Julutoe is raking fallen leaves. He graduated last year and is one of our outstanding role models. He is passionate for Christ! He often leads our evening devotions at the Discipleship Training Center. He has just registered at Stella Maris to study Architecture. Frank is the Project Field Supervisor for Community Tidiness Care.
Many wheel barrow loads get hauled to the refuse pile. After the 5 hrs are completed, Daniel has a special dish of rice waiting for his hungry workers. A neighbor in the community prepared this for them. These are the names of our volunteers: Daniel Coleman, Frank Julutoe, Richard Wonbiah, Jason Suku, Saye Gea, Patrick Goh, Paul Barchue, James Kollie, Darvin Darlieh, Robert Toe, Emmanuel Bourgar, Eli Passawe, George Seebo, Michael Gbahn, Melvin Seebo, Jeremiah Gaye, Samuel Tarr, Jerry Mulbah, Emmanuel Vah, Boddyson Zlebroolo, Tony Nayenney and Love Kamara. Thank you Daniel for organizing this so well! Good job! See more on Daniel Coleman by clicking here Orphan Child Now Studies Criminal Law

Much like the early disciples of Jesus wondered what the Kingdom of Heaven looks like, we often hear Christians ask the question; “What does it mean to ‘seek first the Kingdom?’”. THIS is a prime example of what it means to seek the Kingdom! Namely… showing and walking out a “serve my community” heart. It is simply a message of “your good at MY expense”. James said; “…I will SHOW you my faith by my works”. We are not justified by God because of our good deeds, BUT we are seen as righteous by the world when our good deeds flow out of Who we are (Christ) in service to our community!
WOW! Karen you have planted the seeds of the Kingdom and we are seeing the harvest in the hearts and lives of these community leaders. I remember my time there with Daniel Coleman and was impressed by him then. He is growing into the leader that he is called to be and others will do likewise! Good job ProVision of Hope!

How absolutely heartwarming to see these pictures and what these young men are doing. Also, when I see so many of them becoming so well educated, I agree with you that these are the future leaders and will go on to help their own people.
Thank you, Karen!

It is so nice to see people in the community working towards a common goal. The Lord looks down and says: Well done, good and faithful serants. By the way spring is coming towards Winnipeg, Manitoba and I will now need to do some clean-up around my customers properties. Thanks for the encouraging pictures, now I too must get busy helping my neighbours!

Last month when a volunteer was cleaning the highway in front of my place, I gave him a bag of “Lindt” chocolates. I wish I could give each of these boys a bag of those chocolates. Well done! Bob Bieberdorf
