Look what incredible skill the boys are learning in Liberia!

The sounds of hammering, sawing, and sanding are in the air …

For the past three months, seven of our oldest boys have been very busy on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons.  They are hard at work, first listening and watching, then doing it themselves. Under the guidance of experienced woodworkers, they are being taught basic woodworking skills, with a focus on making furniture. They are learning to produce and repair chairs, tables, beds, and cupboards. They also practice spraying and painting certain pieces, and have learned how to install doors, among other skills.

This practical, hands-on vocational program will run for six months, with another group of students joining in by the end of November. As each student completes the training with accuracy, he will “graduate” and receive his own tool set. We are hopeful that some of the participants will go on to a successful career in carpentry, furniture design, or a related field. We are so excited for our kids to have opportunities such as this, and know these experiences are invaluable to them as they grow to be productive adults in Liberian society!

We are deeply grateful to RetailROI and others for their financial support of our ongoing vocational programs.

Please pray with us that our young adults would take full advantage of this opportunity and that God would be glorified in all that we do.

 

“Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise.”
Proverbs 19:20

Thank you for praying for the work in Liberia.
