Many resource-rich communities around the world are plagued with poverty, illiteracy, and epidemic diseases. Add frequent corruption, greed, and lawlessness to the mix and too often local populations find themselves unable to rise above their conditions. Sierra Leone is just such a place. The practical and spiritual needs are great, but living side by side with these challenging conditions is a strong ethos of hope, pride, generosity, and an unmistakable spiritual hunger.

Through our ministry, we are striving to create a legacy of filling needs, both eternal and practical, so that this and future generations in Sierra Leone will be able to stake their claim in the progress that our helping hands will allow them to achieve. A warm meal, safe drinking water, basic medical care, education: these are just some of the things that for many are just a dream.

With God’s provision, and our faithful partnership, these dreams can become part of their reality.
