Summer 2010 Update

Summer 2010 Update

I love to watch a crowd of people turn into individuals over time.  Instead of a sea of strangers, Zechariah, Sameula, Josephine and Yata emerge.  Returning to West Africa and investing into relationships reminds me of our ultimate purpose, loving people

I want to give you a taste of what we did during our month in Sierra Leone, 2010.  

Starting in Bo, we furthered foundations of the children's home, from painting and furnishing to paperwork and meetings. This first home will be a model of the future homes as we expand across the 11 acres.  We now wait on City Council for the final approval before we launch.  In the small village of Gelehun, we focused on an evangelistic campaign.  A few hundred individuals, like Abraham, Mohamed and Kady, found freedom and life in Jesus and were plugged into Sewa A/G.  In Freetown, we were thrilled with the progress of The Crossroads youth development center and computer school as the one-year anniversary was celebrated on July 1.  We hired a Spiritual Supervisor to emphasize our aim.

In one month we all effected eternity.  Thanks for the support and encouragement now and over the past years!
