by Kim Smith,  missionary

"Our mission is that every village of Liberia will have a healthy church.  Most of the towns and villages of Liberia have no church.  We have worked in over 200 villages in 8 counties. This month we made 57 mission/ministry trips, visiting 61 villages and other locations, going into 8 new locations.  Many of the places we visited multiple times, our longest trip was 6 days, shortest a few hours.  We printed and distributed 5,600 pages of teaching material and distributed hundreds of Bibles, 26 were baptized and 33 completed our extensive Bible study program. Several factors affect how many mission trips we can go on each month; illness, injuries, motorbikes repaired, the availability of gas and money are some."

This is a remarkable labor of love. Kim lives with and works with a team of 8 Liberian nationals.  Each has a typical food expenditure of  $1.50 a day average .
This country has 90% unemployment.  Literacy among the people is widespread. This team however continues with little outside help and at tremendous personal sacrifice. 

Their goal is to have a church in every village and town in Liberia.

Please pray for this team who endure hazards daily.
