Boldy Go !!! (Root Source May 2009)

From the first time Vanessa and I stepped off of the plane in Liberia, we knew that God had a plan that would unfold in front of us and take us on the ride of our lives. Little did we know how significantly that plan would change everything we knew, everything we felt, everything we believed about life. God was changing our hearts in such a drastic way that we still continue to be challenged in ways we would have never imagined.

As you all know, Vanessa and I announced several months ago that we would be moving our entire family to Liberia in April. But God had a different plan and we had more things to take care of here before we left. We feel strongly He is opening the doors for us to make the move now in mid-August. This move will challenge our entire family in many ways, and we ask you to please be in prayer with us as we make this difficult transition. We are all so excited and our anticipation could not get any greater!

God has called us to "Boldy go and proclaim the gospel to all nations" and not to have a spirit of fear. We want to follow God's leading in faith and we have total trust that He will fill the gaps. We must raise a total of $15,000 to cover the cost of airfare to move our family to Liberia. This cost is obviously a one-time costs and is for one-way tickets. This would only take 100 people committing to a one-time gift of $150.00.

We need to purchase tickets in June to ensure we can get everyone on the same flight and get the best price on tickets - which only gives us about 50 days to raise the funds for this need. We ask you to please prayerfully consider what you can do to be a true blessing in this area. Your gift will help us to accomplish our goal of being more hands-on as we oversee the organization that God has set before us.

Spirit Liberia Reaches OK and GA

In the past month, we have had several opportunities to spread the word about Spirit Liberia.

In mid-April, we (Greg and Vanessa) flew to Oklahoma to spend the weekend with some wonderful people. Fresh Start Fellowship, based in Fairview, has a true heart for Liberia and has just come home recently from a three-day crusade that saw over 100 people come to a saving knowledge of Christ. We spent the weekend discussing ideas and getting to know many of the people in the congregation. It was an incredible time of fellowship, fun, and brainstorming. We know God has some big plans unfolding!

On Saturday, May 2, Spirit Liberia also had the pleasure of being promoted on the Peter Nehsahn Christian Radio Show in Georgia. Greg was interviewed by Peter Nehsahn, an author, pastor, Liberian, and host of the program. It was a wonderful interview and a true blessing to be able to speak to so many people about the projects, plans, and vision of Spirit Liberia.

They have requested Vanessa and Greg to join them again for another program in the near future where we would take listener calls so they can ask questions about Liberia and our mission there.
