We are honored to introduce you to our friends & co-workers, George & Lucy Lott. We are privileged to serve along side them. They are passionate about knowing God and are excited about seeing their own people reached & taught God's Word. I want to take just a few minutes (via phone call) to ask them some questions about their lives so you can get to know them better.
Q: George, when did you come to Christ?
A: When I was young, my parents told me about God but I never understood the Gospel. As a teenager, I heard clearly the Gospel message from a Southern Baptist Missionary. I trusted Christ as my Savior. Later, I had many Bible studies with Ken Welch, who taught me more about God's Word. I was like a sponge, taking in all that I could learn.
Q: Lucy, when did you come to Christ?
A: I came to Christ much later than George. It wasn't until we fled war-torn Liberia into Ivory Coast that I first became interested in hearing about God. It was a missionary, Rosemarie Baghurst , that taught the Chronological Bible lessons to me. I then trusted in Christ. (George states that if it wasn't for the war, Lucy may have never heard the Gospel message)
Q: How has Equip2serve made an impact in Liberia?
A: The impact has been VERY GREAT! In just a short time, many pastors have learned so much about God's Word. Each week I have between 3-5 pastors coming to me asking for more materials & Bible lessons. They want me to teach them! I can't do all the work myself! I'm very grateful for how Equip2serve is helping my country.
Q: Lucy, how do you see your role in Equip2serve?
A: I want to see other women become interested in the Bible. I want to see how we can reach out to them & begin teaching God's Word. ( Please pray as Equip2serve wives begin to bridge this gap with the ultimate goal of teaching women & children). As a side note, Lucy has a servant heart. She is very hospitable, great cook & welcoming hostess!
Q: George, how can we pray for you?
A: Pray for wisdom. Pray for me that I would know how to answer my fellow Liberians. Our culture can be a big obstacle to teaching God's Word. We need to have a solid foundation.
Pray for my children. Pray that God will protect & guide them. Pray that they will seek after God.
Pray that God will open our minds to His Truth. And that we can in turn teach others.
"I want to thank God for Equip2serve. There are times when I question God about the war & all that happened. Then I realize that I need to trust that He knows why it happened. I'm excited to see how God works in Liberia through Equip2serve." George Lott
