While Jacob and the team were in Liberia in March one of the things they were able to do was hold a 2-day VBS style kids camp!
The kids were able to attend the camp while their teachers were receiving training.
The camp consisted of Bible teaching and games. The material was put together and donated by Matt and Ragen Harman. Matt is a director of Student Ministries at the Montrose Evangelical Free Church. He was able to travel to Liberia on an earlier trip.
Over 380 children were able to attend the camp. They enjoyed trying out the different games, that along with just being fun, work on developing teamwork and communication skills.
The model of providing a Bible based camp for the kids while the teachers were getting training on different educational strategies worked very well; we plan to continue that for the next training session. If you would like information on how you might be able to be involved with the Liberia Education Project, please send us an email.

On Saturday, May 1, the Montrose Evangelical Free Church hosted a "Celebrate Liberia "night. Over the past year, 3 teams from the church have been able to travel to Liberia working on various projects. On the last trip this past March, the team was able to accompany Jacob out to Bong County and help him conduct the two day kid's camp and teacher training. We will be posting more pictures and stories from that trip in the future so please check back.
Saturday night was a time of sharing of pictures and stories by team members and a presentation by Jacob on the Liberia Education Project. The Project is beginning to raise funds to build the Ghenwein Mission School at the site in Kokoyah District, Bong County as well as to continue with the development of the agricultural component and teacher training. Jacob was able to share the vision for how churches, individuals, and organizations can come alongside and help support Liberia Education Project.
