Supporting our friends
impacted by Ebola
Many people are aware of the Ebola virus outbreak that is taking place in West Africa right now. The CDC is reporting that over 5800 people have been infected and over 2800 have died. There really isn’t much that can be done in terms of treatment. There are some experimental treatments, but for now combating Ebola is all about prevention. Liberia, is one of the hardest hit countries.
Pastor and Toby in Liberia, February 2014
Over the last several years, our church has had increasing opportunity to minister in Liberia. In August, 2012 our Pastor traveled to Liberia on the invitation from a friend to teach at a conference. He came home heavily burdened by what he saw. In February, 2014 a group of three people from our church travelled to Liberia on a month-long mission trip. Apart from the travel we have sent medical and school supplies. We were even able to ship over a vehicle.
Donations are tax deductible and a tax receipt will be mailed out to you as long as you provide your address. Every penny of all donations will go directly to Liberia, with the exception of bank fees. Please consider joining with us as we endeavor to offer support to those in need.
It is no secret that Liberia is one of the poorest countries on earth. The resources available for people to protect themselves from Ebola are very limited. Our friends in Liberia have asked if we might be able to help provide items to assist in proper sanitation and improved hygiene, including protective clothing (masks, gowns, gloves, etc.) and disinfectants. $1500 can make a huge difference in one community. Our goal is to provide funds to 4 areas: Monrovia, Gbarnga, Harbel, and Kakata. Through our travel to Liberia and face-to-face interactions with Pastors and community leaders in these areas, we are confident items will be obtained and distributed appropriately.
