Tomorrow Belongs To People Who Prepare For It Today – African Proverb
May was a busy month for us at the Guesthouse! We had a missionary couple from Texas, a small team from Kentucky, and our very own pastor from Virginia.
Pastor Jon, Pastor Andrew and Jan Downing came May 4th to May 14th. They had a busy schedule with four teaching seminars, preaching two Sundays and visitations! However, the team was able to have one free day in Monrovia, the capital city.
Jan Downing taught money management. He went into depth with saving and budgeting. Liberia is mostly a cash-based society, although we started using Mobile money for transactions, It was a bit of a challenge for both the teacher and audience, but a great learning experience for both. The key concept was how to get out of poverty.
We had a two day teaching here at the Guesthouse with about 90 attendees. They were mostly pastors and church leaderes with a few others. Two topics discussed were: “False Teaching: Recognizing and Avoiding It” and “A Leader’s Integrity”. These are very relevant topics in Liberia.
The highlight of their trip to Liberia was the teaching conference we had in the Bush. It was a two hour trip into Bong County that included 45 minutes into the Bush. The road looked a little more than a hiking trail!
The village we went to is called Gonoie Town and they have not had a crusade or conference in 10 years! We were there all day with all three men teaching. When we first arrived, the team had to meet with the Town Chief, Mr. Sackie, before being allowed to teach. There was also a welcoming ceremony with Cola nuts and country bread, which is made up of beaten rice. Pastor Malley and Pastor Konah, from our Grace to Liberia Kpelle Team, did the translating. As we left the village, they requested Bibles. Fortunately, New Hope Christian Church recently donated a few boxes, so we could give them a box.
On Wednesday morning in between teachings, we took the team to Kakata Central Prison to meet the inmates we have Bible Study with. Later in the afternoon, they visited a small orphanage , which is partially run by one of the announcersfrom Destiny Radio.
Now that all of our guests are back home, we have a little time to rest befor ethe next guest comes in August. If you are interested in visiting or having a team come, let us know!
