Every trip to West Africa has it's own unique story! It's not surprising that this particular trip made by these men was any different.
God put together an amazing team! Unique in their personalities and skills. Some preachers and some carpenters. Some black and some white. Some from North America and some from Africa. God uses us in unique ways and always in HIS PERFECT WAY.
The challenge was huge but these men were up to the task! They formed two teams and split up teaching in two locations of Liberia. One group went to River Cees, and the other to Buchannan. The team worked well together in teaching through the Bible, discussing key topics of who God is, the Redemption plan for man and how man lives out the gospel to reach others. The guys also were able to teach a new module on leadership which was a valuable tool for a lot of the African pastors, creating a challenging time of discussion.
It's always good to spend some extra one on one time with the Pastors. Many of them can share their stories more freely and ask more pointed personal questions. Many of these pastors find that relating this way has been very beneficial in their own walk with God.
It was thrilling to see how God used Philip & George to help teach their own people! Having them as part of the team was a real asset!
We continue to ask God for wisdom as we train Pastors. Disciple to make disciples! Thanks for praying with us!
