The Gbarnga Lutheran School Mission Project
Pastor Leon Schultz visited First Lutheran Church on September 29th and shared his congregation’s ministry to Liberia, specifically their calling to assist in the building of a Lutheran school.
St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Providence is a thriving, multi-cultural congregation. Many of our members, in particular, have come to us from the country of Liberia. Once a developed and thriving country, Liberia is now struggling to rebuild communities that were destroyed by war.
Many children in Liberia are hindered by poverty. It is not possible for them to come and learn about Jesus. They are busy earning money for food. Many of them are homeless as a result of the war and have no opportunity to attend a school. Our mission is to give the children there a chance to enjoy one of the greatest benefits of the Lutheran Church—A Christian Education.
We need your help. We need to clear the land. We need blocks and mortar, desks and chairs, books, paper and pencils. We need your spiritual support as you pray for this project. We need your physical support should you join St. Paul’s to visit the project in progress. And, yes, we need your financial support. Help us to help the little children. In the end, it all comes down to supporting a little child.
“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’” Matthew 19:14
