Mission teams follow Liberian refugees.

By October 10, 2003

Liberia (MNN)–New troops are being sent into Liberia for peace-keeping duties. Since the arrival of United Nations troops, October 1, fighting has been sporadic.

However, fierce skirmages forced hundreds of thousands over the border into Sierra Leone. There, the hordes joined others who had fled the earlier fighting, prior to President Charles Taylor’s departure.

Audio Scripture Ministries’ Tom Dudenhoffer just received word their teams followed the people over, and began ministering in the refugee camps. “I expect this is going to cause quite a bit of conflict, just for those people who are there simply to survive, but now, they’ve been displaced again. We really don’t know the future of these people. Some will be trying to go back to Liberia, according to our people that are there, but many have just planned to stay, they have no other options.”

ASM sent a shipment of equipment with a team of missionaries within the last couple weeks. Upon arrival, teams began a distribution program using Tape-Talk2 players. The players are specifically made to compliment programming produced in local languages.

Dudenhoffer asks people to pray. “Pray that God would work powerfully as His Word is presented, and, that in the midst of these really tough times, physically, people will see the real significance of knowing Jesus Christ, and be willing to trust Him.”
