Lots of great things are happening! The roof for the GSA Road church is now complete, and it was just in time for the rainy season. Thank you to all who made this possible. The congregation there is truly grateful. We still need to put in the side walls and the floor which will be about $4500. The cost of cement has risen tremendoulsy and is about $15 USD per bag!

We are still waiting for the well to be put in at the GSA Road church. The driller we are using has been caught up in the Bush on some projects and while he is there will be quoting the wells in Nimba county. Please pray with us that the quotes will be low, and that the work we need done in the city will be done soon! We were expecting the GSA well (Rock Hill) well to be finished already. The next well will be for the Jacobstown church. This is another desperate area in the city. We are helping this church purchase their land, which in total will be about $1200. The money toward their well is already partially raised, so that is very exciting! We are waiting to get the quote on this well also which can't be done until the drillers return from the bush.

While we were in Liberia, we found out that the lease on our office was going to fall through, but it was actually for the best. We were able to get a refund on that money and used a portion of that to purchase a car! This will be very helpful for the pastors to visit the churches in the Bush. It is a small car, but it has 4 wheel drive so should be able to make the hard trips into the Bush. We are so thankful for this car. We plan to build our offices on the property that we have already purchased. We haven't started to work on that yet, so we don't have an estimate on the cost.

Our other projects will be putting in 4 churches in Nimba county. We have been given the land for this, so that is a blessing. Our goal for this year is to finish these 4 churches, have their wells in, and also put a missionary home by the church in one of the 4 locations. This will be used for many different things and will be a great benefit! We have had a lot of interest in sending a team over from some of our local churches to build the Nimba county churches. There is nowhere to house people out there, so we would like to have the house constructed and ready first.

We want to thank you all for your support in prayer and also finacially. We are aking for people to commit to sending $30 a month for general support. We also need donations for the specific projects that were mentioned above. If you would be able to contribute, please e-mail us and/or send a donation by mail or through paypal. If you would like to help with Spirit Liberia fundraising or other administrative support please e-mail us! We have a place for you!

Finally, the Spirit Liberia worship CD will be available soon. It is finished and we are in the process of ordering the CD's. The music is great! We will have them available for a $20 donation on our website soon. Blessings!



We apologize it has been so long since we have updated this blog. We will post soon about everything that is happening with Spirit Liberia, but wanted to update you all about a personal situation we have been going through recently.

Many of you have heard by now, that we have lost our sweet baby that was due to be born in October. This is a new experience for us, we have never lost a baby. God was incredibly gracious and merciful to us during this time. He prepared the way in our hearts and lead us into His presence. We found out about 2 weeks ago that there was a problem with the baby that could be fatal. We had 2 weeks to pray and fast and ask the Lord to make another way and spare our child. Many people who have lost pregnancies are not given that opportunity. We are truly thankful that God blessed us with that time. While we will miss this baby dearly and look forward anxiously to meeting her someday in Heaven, we have total peace and joy in God's perfect will. We know that this baby would not have died had He not allowed it and ordained it for His purposes. None of our children belong to us, they are gifts on loan by their heavenly Father who loves them more than we could ever imagine. We have learned over the years to trust in His love completely, even when it hard to understand. We can rest in His goodness and in the fact that we will be united again together one day. If you have not yet commited your life to Christ, repented of your sin and given Him control of your life, please consider doing that today. God does not desire for even one of us to perish. All are born in sin and need redemption. The only way is through repentance and relationship with Christ. Could this baby of ours have the earthly purpose of pointing you to Christ? Certainly! One day we may have the answer, but for now, we will take every opportunity to give God the glory! If you would like prayer, or just to learn more about salvation please pursue that! You can call or e-mail us, or another Christian in your life. If you feel God calling you, the time is now! Don't wait. Thank you to all who faithfully lifted us up in prayer during this time. We love you.
