Merry Christmas!

The above picture is the ILF leadership team. It represents different tribes, backgrounds, and stories of teachers, nannies, security guards, directors and cooks. All these people work towards the same goal because of what Jesus has done for them and what they are seeing God do in Sierra Leone. What God has and is doing is simply miraculous, and our hope is that over the last year you have seen a glimpse of this as so many of you have sponsored a child, been a prayer or financial partner or have listened to ILF stories over a cup of coffee.

To quote one of the above leaders, “Jesus gave himself for us and continues to show [His] love for us by providing food, school, a place to worship. I will serve Him because I love him, and because He first loved me…”

With Christmas just a few days away, we are reminded that all ILF has done and will do is because Jesus first loved us. We want to wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas as well as a heartfelt ‘thank you’ for your partnership with us over the last year. We are thankful for the family of ILF supporters and volunteers, and we are humbled that we can stand together alongside communities in Sierra Leone with you all.

“The Christian tradition unequivocally affirms that humility is a virtue. Christians did not invent humility as a virtue ― it is there in the Hebrew scriptures already ― but Christian scripture and subsequent Christian thought put humility at the center of the moral life in an unprecedented way…”

ILF’s holistic ministry entails more than sponsoring a program. It goes beyond short-term, relief-oriented aid. It is a promise of hope, it is a confirmation of God’s grace. Thank you for helping us to make an impact.
