We have a great opportunity. We can ship Discovery Series textbooks to Liberia in West Africa more efficiently and inexpensively than ever before, and we are hurrying to take advantage of this opportunity!
The Bible schools have asked for 3,000 Discovery Series texts to help equip and train their students. With your help we can do it!
For just $1 per book, we can ship these texts to Liberia where they will be distributed to the Bible schools. When these books arrive, the students will have something they’ve never owned—quality, contextual, ministry-focused training texts. I am so thankful that God is providing an opportunity for us to deliver these resources to these Bible school students who have a passion to reach their country for Jesus.
I’m thinking of Abenda Tamba who pastors Zion Assembly of God in Monrovia, the capital. He is a graduate of the Liberia Assembly of God Bible school where students often have only a Bible and a few well-worn books handed down to them from someone else.
Receiving a new set of Discovery Series textbooks for Bible study and pastoral training will change the ministry of these students. One moment they’ll have a few old texts. The next moment, they’ll have exactly what they need for their Bible classes, a systematic study system for ministry training!
During the civil war in Liberia, Abenda and his congregation suffered greatly. Many people died. When the Ebola outbreak hit, they suffered even more. Many fled the country but Abenda refused to leave his church, believing the only way to bring hope and healing to his country is through Jesus Christ. Abenda is now a key leaders in Assemblies of God, Liberia and he and his fellow national church leaders have set goals to open hundreds more churches in the coming years. They need more pastors like Abenda who are Spirit-led and biblically trained to lead those new churches.
Sending 3,000 Discovery Series texts to Liberia will dramatically and positively impact the lives and ministries of a new generation of pastors.
Would you provide one pastor with 10 titles for $10, or five pastors with 20 titles for $100? Perhaps you can cover the entire cost of the shipment for $3,000. Give as the Holy Spirit leads you, and I thank you in advance for your generosity and support.
Due to the generosity of friends, the number of biblically trained leaders who are guiding the church in Africa continues to grow dramatically. I look forward to hearing from you and, as the funds come in, we will be able to place these vital materials into the hands of Liberian pastors like Abenda.
May God bless you for blessing Liberia!
