We invite you to join with us in walking for the kids of Liberia. Your personal involvement in our walk allows our kids to have an education that they would not otherwise ever be able to afford. We believe that education will change the future of Liberia. With a few small steps at a time we can make a difference!

Meetings on Both Sides of the World

The blog has been pretty quiet lately. That is not from lack of material to post, we definitely have that. We're just doing some 'behind the scenes' type of stuff. Like planning meetings for our literacy program. We have meetings going on from both sides! This is the group of people planning the 2nd annual walkathon. Well, minus two or three. We had a very productive meeting with a lot of input and discussion on ways to make our walk even better this year. I was really impressed with our kids who showed up and offered their help! They came up with brilliant ideas! I love 1 Timothy 4:12... Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity. These kids are a shining example of living out their faith.

Then, across the ocean, our program director in Liberia is holding another meeting. He is bringing parents together to discuss how the children are doing in school and making plans to help ensure they succeed in their classes. Also discussed were work related issues addressed to the school and how families can volunteer time, which, in turn, makes our families and schools stronger.

Here's a picture of Stephen with some of our parents of school children. I want to add here that Stephen is an amazing director. He is the core of what we are doing there. He keeps the program going in an organized, efficient manner. This program could not have been blessed with a better person for the job!

I believe this is an exciting time for the Liberian Literacy Program! We invite you to ask questions or better yet, come get involved with us, the rewards are priceless!
