Liberia Now Team ministers to impoverished children

Liberia (MNN) — In a country where 15 percent of children die before their first birthday, the people of Liberia are in need of hope and help.

The Liberia Now team, comprised of individuals from Sammy Tippit Ministries, Eternal Concept, Bandera Road Community Church and Quartus Diem, went to Liberia to offer such hope.

While there, they worked in the area of Lower Virginia, Liberia.

According to STM, they wanted to “transform a community with spiritual, economic, educational and social help."

One way they did this was through repairing water wells in the area. Then they trained Christians in the community to make repairs in the future. With nearly 40 percent of Liberia unable to access clean water, this was a great way to restore hope.

Several other team members held a weeklong camp for elementary-age children. In the future, they hope to find sponsors for 47 children to attend school in the fall.

For the social and spiritual help, they held community movie nights, showing Hollywood and children’s films, which had spiritual truths in their storylines.

Liberia still has a long way to go before poverty and other needs are no longer present, but the Liberia Now team helped them makes step towards this. Liberia Now is currently in the process of becoming a full-fledged NGO (non-governmental organization).

To support the Liberia Now team as they continue to help Liberians physically and spiritually, visit their Web site, LiberiaNow.org, which will be operational at the end of this month. You can also visit STM’s Web site if you are interested in sponsoring one of the 47 Liberian children.
