2010 Liberia Video from Lifesong for Orphans on Vimeo.
This week we are inviting our faithful readers and supporters to step up and help us in a time of need for Lifesong Liberia.
Liberia is located on the west coast of Africa, between Cote d’Ivorie and Sierra Leone. After 14 years of civil war, the country’s infrastructure was destroyed. A peace agreement was signed in 2003, though significant issues still remain. Currently, there is an unemployment rate of 80%.
Lifesong has partnered with The Master’s Home of Champions orphanage and is providing a loving and safe home to many destitute and abandoned children, some of whom are deaf. Bishop Emmanuel Jones and his wife, Ramona, are passionate about rescuing and caring for such children. They seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and are focused on the goal of raising up champions for the good of Liberia and glory of God. Three months after Lifesong got involved with The Master's Home of Champions Bishop Jones sent us this update:
You should see the children now! They are beautiful! When you were here, they didn't look good because they were malnourished, pale and some were sick. Now they look completely different!This summer, another orphanage was in dire need, and thanks to an unexpected donation (story to come) Lifesong was there. Praise the Lord we can help more children! But now, we need help too! We need your help to make sure these children are fed every day! We need your help to care for the fatherless! Will you join us?
70 sponsors in one week is a tall order. We know this. We also know that we serve a big God who has told us that caring for the poor and vulnerable is at the very heart of who He is! We believe we can make this happen! We pray that God will call hearts this week and we trust that you will answer!
Our goal is 70 people. $28 a month. 1 year commitment. Contact us at email@example.com to commit!
Join us in bringing joy and purpose to orphans!
