Thank you in advance for your kind words of support! Please enjoy this update from Emmanuel Jones, Lifesong Liberia Director… The Home of Champions at Marshall is undertaking a garden project for the second year.  Children from the 4th-6th grades are presently planting water greens, sweet potato greens and sweet corn.  The greens will be used in the children’s meals.  This project is also intended to teach the children farming and gardening skills.  We learned a great deal last year, and hope to have better success this time.

Thank you in advance for your kind words of support! Keith & Kay Knapp, Lifesong Liberia liaisons, share updates from Liberia: Meet Hans Togbah, 11 years old and in the first grade.

Thank you in advance for your kind words of support! Please enjoy this update from Denis, Lifesong Ukraine Director… “This past weekend we had our fourth LS cup soccer competition where four teams have been qualified and participated in the semi-finals and final game.

With some of the kids we have just reinforced our influence and secured our relations.  As we did in previous years we have rented local Football Club Metalist stadium training fields and played four games. It was a two day event where all of the kids competition participants stayed at our camp property. LS cup goes to … Continue reading

The Day After Orphan Sunday – Village of Hope

Please enjoy this update from Village of Hope-Guatemala, Yesterday, all over the social media world, people were posting this: Churches around the world will pause today to consider the growing orphan crisis… Our prayer is that they don’t forget tomorrow!    Have you forgotten already? Have you asked the Lord to break YOUR heart for the things that break HIS? What is He calling YOU to do? What can YOUR family sacrifice? Right now this very minute there are children waiting. Children who are living with HIV in a culture that rejects them. Schools do not want to accept them; most orphanages do not want to accept them either. And so they wait – in hopes that one day someone will welcome them in, wrap their loving arms around them and tell them they are valued, cherished, and loved. And we wait, for the body of Christ to come together … Continue reading

Our students will be going into their community and serving the elderly and widows. It will be a week long activity of shoveling, mending roofs, cutting grass (not with a mower, but by hand with a slasher), fetching water from the wells, … Continue reading
