But the word of God is not bound!
2 Timothy 2:9b
Liberia’s economy and infrastructure were all but destroyed by war and Ebola, leaving the educational system in disarray - leaving the children to bear the brunt of the challenges.
But God has His own plans for these precious souls.
Many rural communities are deeply rooted in African Traditional Religion, holding fast to the animism of their ancestors, and do not know Jesus.
But God is bringing many families to Him through the kids in the Lutheran schools.
Nearly 50% of Liberian kids will never complete 6th grade and over 70% of teens are not enrolled in school.
But God is going to use all of us to offer hundreds of kids the opportunity of Lutheran education, defying those odds.
Lutheran school tuition averages $95/year, however, 50% of Liberians live on less than $2/day, making education an unattainable goal for the poor. Parents feel imprisoned, hopeless.
But God’s Word is not chained, “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future”.
Hope and Care is thankful to be partnering with the schools in the Pacific Southwest District in ’22-‘23. We pray when all seems hopeless in your ministry, you will experience a But God story to share with our hurting world.
The 2022-23 PSD Hearts for Jesus unified mission project seeks to raise tuition for students to attend Lutheran schools in Liberia! Every $95 contributed will send one student to school in Liberia for a year. We are encouraging all of our PSD schools to participate! How many students can your school support?
One - $95
Five - $475
Ten - $950
Twenty Five - $2,375
Fifty - $4,750
Set your school's goal! Can our PSD Schools support 400 students? $38,000 is a lofty goal, but we KNOW you can do it!
