Christmas Highlights from Christians in Action (CinA) Africa

Christians in Action Liberia, West Africa: CinA Liberia hosted a Youth Christmas Camp to celebrate the close of 2017: Standing While Others Bow. The camp attracted 100 young people, mostly girls between thirteen and twenty-two years of age. Many victims of abuse, some pregnant, others already teenage mothers. Counselors offered encouragement and solace to campers seeking someone to talk to. Seminar Topics included: Passing exams and choosing a career, healthy dating and courtship, youthfulness and its challenges, and standing for God in a crooked and corrupt Society. CinA missionary Christian Kallon thanks God for the opportunity to minister to these young stars, encouraging them to recognize that all is not lost despite the trials they’ve faced. God loves them and has a plan for their lives.

Christians in Action, Sierra Leone: During Christmas break–often characterized by time spent in secret societies, negativity, and evil distractions—CinA Sierra Leone, Freetown, hosted a weeklong Children’s Camp: Transforming Children for Continuous Spiritual Growth. Daniel and Timothy character studies reinforced the theme and provided a platform from which camp counselors explained the truth of the Gospel to the 127 children in attendance. Those who did not know Jesus as their personal Savior accepted Him into their hearts and lives, starting a brand new relationship with the Son of God. The successful camp activities included games, sports, dancing, quiz, arts and crafts, and much singing. Laughter and fun filled each day as the campers formed friendships with kids from other churches. Missionaries Issa and Daphne Kargbo send a big thank-you to you, their financial and prayer partners. The camp would not have been the success it was without your generous gifts and prayer.
