Back To School

School will soon be back in session at the Ghenwein Mission School in Bong County, Liberia!
The children will start back on September 6th. Currently there are are 5 teachers that will be working with the 150 students who are registered. There are more children who would like to attend, but right now due to space they aren't able to at this time.
Planning is in the beginning stages for a second trip to Liberia this winter to hopefully work on the building project as well as conduct a second teacher training.
We are still collecting school supplies if you would like to send a donation. Many stores are still having "back to school " sales so it is a great time to pick up a few extra items to donate to the children in Liberia.
Please pray for the children and teachers as they begin their year!

Enjoying time with some of the children of Bong County

When the team arrived in the village they were overwhelmed by the reception they received from the villagers. Children and adults were lined up singing, cheering, and welcoming the team. The teams' hearts were deeply touched touched by the outpouring of hospitality they received.While the teachers were in the training sessions, some of the team enjoyed leading the kids in Bible learning and games. This game gave a tangible lesson of trust as the blindfolded partner had to rely on their partner to help them navigate through a course through verbal instructions. The kids enjoyed both watching and participating in the game!
