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!
