Ready for Zinc!

Progress is continuing on the school-the four classrooms the builders have been working on are just about ready for the zinc roofing. It is important for the zinc roofing to be put on as the rainy season will be coming soon and the mud brink walls need to be protected from the rain.
We are praying for the necessary funds to come in for the roof to be done. Please consider making a donation today!

Making Progress

We recently received some pictures of the continuing work on the school and wanted to share the progress with our blog readers!

Team in Liberia

Jacob arrived in Liberia January 15th and was followed by the team of 9 more on January 23. They spent a few days in Monrovia getting supplies and such and then headed out to Bong County. The construction work has begun on the school! Today and tomorrow is the teacher training. Please pray for the relationships that are being built between teachers as they come together for training. Please pray as well for the materials to continue to come in for the school and the team to get much of the building up before they return home.

Upcoming trip

The team will be leaving the United States for Liberia, January 22 and returning around February 7th. The schedule is full of activities and everyone is looking forward to hitting the ground in Liberia and getting to work!
LEP is hosting the second teacher training session with a focus on early literacy skills, lesson planning, classroom management, and cultural literacy. The training manuals for the teachers are almost all printed and we are continuing to gather flashcards, magnetic letters, and trays.
While the teachers are in the training sessions, another part of the team will be working with the kids conducting a two day vacation bible school type day camp, mixing Bible teaching with fun activities that help teach object lessons.
This trip also entails the start of construction on the new school building. The villagers have been working on making the bricks and gathering some of the materials for the project.
Last year, the time spent in the village out in Bong County was such a blessing for all of the team members, that this year's team is very excited about being able to spend more time out there working and getting to know the villagers.
Please pray for the upcoming trip and if God leads you donations are still being accepted for the building project.

Liberia Education Project Bags

The Liberia Education Project would like to thank Mr. Dan Lukasavage and the Graphics Communications class for the terrific job they did on printing the bags for the teacher training.
Each teacher attending the training will receive a tote bag with the training manual, notebook, and pen. We are hoping also to place in each bag: a set of addition and subtraction flashcards, magnetic letters and board, and a word game.
Excitement is building as plans are being finalized for the upcoming trip to Liberia in January 2011. Volunteers in both the US and Liberia are hard at work getting things in order for a successful trip.
Please prayerfully consider donating to the building fund.
