We received funding for a Motor bike for our village outreaches. Since Fallie is in our focus for now, we are working with our evangelism team, training and preparing them for the task ahead. We want to thank some of our special friends in Fresno for their financial support in meeting this need.
Fallie Village is a town that is about 20 Km always from Robertsport. Besides being a Muslim community, the people depend largely on agriculture for business and their livelihood. From the Cassava Farming, they get Gari and Foofoo which form part of the Liberian staple food. We got connected to this town when our car power suddenly went off while we were on our way back to Robertsport from Monrovia. We spent the night i on the request of the young men in that community who gave us one of their huts to stay in for the night. With that gesture of hospitality from the young men, we quickly became friends.
On the following morning our vehicle was fixed and got on our way for Robertsport. On our arrival, Augusta and I took some time to ponder through the drama – the breakdown of our car, hospitality of the community and the hut we slept in; in it all, we could sense the Lord speaking to us about an outreach in that village. Visiting with the elders and leaders sometime later, it was confirmed to us that God was in it. In that meeting, the community leaders expressed their openness to any religion that may wish to settle among them. They further promise to give us a place/land in their town for our ministry.
To reciprocate for their hospitality, we decided to celebrate the Christmas with them during which time we fed their children. All the children gathered in the school building. Christian songs were raised and sung followed by prayer and sharing of the Gospel message by one of our elders who spoke their dialect. The entire program was a joyous moment where we had good fellowship and new friendships were established.
We want to thank the Lord for the opportunity to reach out to the Fallie community. We plan to put the women into groups, provide at least one Gari-processing machine for their gari and foo-foo industry and request for farmland to grow cassava and other vegetables for demonstration farming.
May the Lord bless you.
