Bringing the Father to the Fatherless

January 2014 - Prayer Letter

Happy New Year! I greet you all with great anticipation for my upcoming short-term trip back to Monrovia in March 2014. My ministry partners at True Faith Missions will sponsor these trips every spring so please consid-er coming in the future! I travelled up to Olar, SC for a planning meeting and was so blessed and encouraged by everything the Lord has been doing through True Faith Missions (TFM) in just one short year! Pastor Hal Nichols spent 3 months in Monrovia, meeting, training and hiring church and school staff, organizing needed renovations and conducting Bible conferences. Here is an outline of just some of what God has done!

True Faith Bethlehem Children’s Rescue Ministry & Church Plant:
Children: TFM is supporting 37 children on site and 7 living in the villages around Bethlehem. There are 7 staff members, including a house mother and her husband, four care takers for the children and one teacher.
Deaf Ministry: TFM is ministering to 30 to 40 deaf and dumb Christians ranging from children through middle age adult currently living in a one room house. Transportation to TFM Bethlehem Church services and training is being provided.
Church: TFM is conducting church services on Sunday and Wednesday as well as youth group meetings throughout the week. Service attendance ranged from 50 to 75 peoples on Sundays. More people are com-ing from the surrounding community. Pastor Kowah is filling the pulpit in Bro. Hal’s absence.
Bible Institute: Dr. Kofi and Pastor Tengbeh, our ministry partners in Libera, are conducting Bible college twice a week under the direction of Pastor Hal. There are currently 30 students. Bible training is being of-fered for free as most Liberians have no financial resources at all.
Bethlehem School: There are 386 students from poor families throughout the area attending school. Some of the children are walking an hour to get to school. There is a school administrator, a principle and 13 teachers working at the school. Next year there may be as many as 450 students receiving schooling and Bible training.

True Faith ELWUO Children’s Rescue Ministry & Church Plant:
Children: TFM is supporting 17 children living at the ELWUO location and 5 adults, 3 of which have grown up at the orphanage but now have no where to go.
Church: TFM is conducting services every Sunday with Bible studies on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Attend-ance is running at about 25 people. Pastor Sai is conducting services in Pastor Hal’s absence.
ELWUO School: There are 45 to 50 school children attending the school at ELWUO. They have one cer-tified teacher and 3 teachers helpers.

True Faith Gbanga:
This is TFM newest work. Seven acres have been purchased in a northern county of Liberia. TFM’s minis-try partner, Pastor Sakie is forming a church with 50 to 75 attending each week. There is no building or other shelter. They are meeting in the open. The ground work is being laid to begin visiting neighboring villages, carrying the gospel into unreached areas and eventually into the neighboring Muslim countries. Eventually, facilities for homeless children and a school will be built at this location. Gardens will be planted and the produce used to supply all the TFM ministries.

This is a LOT of information, but I just wanted you to see what God has done thanks to your prayers and sup-port! Thirty-three of the approximately 60 orphans are being sponsored! Pray for more sponsors and please pray for our team as we organize and go.

With your prayers, we are trusting God to provide our needs as He has already. When asked, the children said what they want the most is SCHOOL SUPPLIES and books! We are carrying all we can in luggage and pur-chasing what we can there. Liberia is making it very diffi-cult to organize any shipments at this time. Thank you for ALL you do and please continue to pray for the fa-therless and forgotten of Liberia!
