    Trip to Liberia

    Children at the Daniel Hoover Children's Village Mission School

    One week from today, a team of ten will travel to Liberia to serve alongside African Christians Fellowship International in caring for children who are orphaned or indigent. Thanks to help from you and others who are also concerned that children know the love of Jesus and are well-cared for, the team is able to go with many supplies and funds to meet the current needs.

    Here are just a few of the initiatives the team is prepared to tackle:

    1. Funding and working alongside a team of Liberians on repairs to a watermill that will pump running water into the childrens dorms. The most exciting part is that the majority of the project will be completed by Liberians.

    2. Planting an acre of Moringa trees. This incredible tree is rich in vitamins K, A, C, B6, manganese, magnesium, riboflavin, calcium, thiamin, potassium, iron, protein, niacin, and dietary fiber and grows up to 15 feet a year. The hope is that ACFI will be able to use this crop as a continual nutritious supplement in the childrens diet.

    3. Training a Liberian to run a bakery business with the ovens that are at one of the childrens homes. This will provide some supplementary income for the childrens care.

    4. Training the leadership of the ministry in their self-sustaining endeavors. Due to the 14 years of civil war in Liberia that ended in 2003, much education and training is needed to move the Liberian community of believers from a state of survival to a healthier state of productivity.

    5. Running a daily VBS for the children. Teaching Bible truths, singing songs about Jesus, playing games, teaching scripture and creating colorful crafts are some of the ways the team hopes to interact with the children to give them a visual picture of Jesus love for them.

    6. Collecting sponsorship updates. Our hope is to bring back photos and a letter from each of your sponsored children and update our records on the children at the homes.

    In the midst of all of these activities and many others, our main hope is that the children and adults we interact with will know how valuable they are to the God who created them and the Savior who died for them.

    Thanks for sending letters and packages for your sponsored children. You cannot imagine what a treat it is for them to know that you care for them. And once again, thank you for your sponsorship. It means more than you know!

    With joy,

    Angel Rutledge
