Be strong and courageous!

“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”” ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭31:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬


If we really care about refugees

If we really care about refugees we will help them remain in their own country and not bring them to ours! Here is what a Syrian man recently told CNN:

During a CNN interview with Brooke Baldwin, a Syrian man, Kassam Eid, praised and thanked President Trump for his recent Tomahawk missile response to the sarin attack in Syria. Eid told Baldwin he didn’t see the media or all the people protesting Trump’s travel ban “raising your voice against President Obama’s inaction in Syria that made us refugees get kicked out of Syria.”

“If you really care about refugees,” Eid said, “if you really care about helping us, please help us stay in our country.”

Greetings from Liberia

Thursday, March 23, 2017.

We successfully completed the teach-backs today. We did have two of the leaders struggle with some of the material, but we were able to coach them through it.

It was another good day! I am amazed how quickly these leaders grasped the concepts and were able to start using examples of from their culture to explain them. It was another warm and humid day here, but not as bad as the previous two days. We did have a really good rain this evening. It did cool things down but tomorrow when the sun comes up, so will the humidity.

Tomorrow morning (Friday), we will wrap things up by doing a short review of some of the key concepts, pass out materials for Phase 1 and 2, review the status of the coaching groups, and present each leader with a certificate of completion. Finally, we will set the dates for next year’s Phase 4 training.

After lunch tomorrow, we will head for Monrovia and the airport to catch my 9:30 pm flight to Brussels, where I will link up with Luke Kuepfer, and then its on to the US.

This will be my last post from Liberia for this year. I will be compiling some of my thoughts and impressions on this year’s trip to Uganda and Liberia and will summarize them for you once I’ve returned home.

Thanks so much for all those who have followed along with me on this year’s journey to Uganda and Liberia. It was truly a remarkable blessing to once again be with these amazing Christian leaders who are accomplishing some amazing things for the Kingdom! God is good!

Thanks for your prayers.
