Sierra Leone Update

The Sierra Leone Project is moving forward all in God’s timing. Praise the Lord! Although some of the children recently contracted chicken pox, they are all happy and excited with the positive changes in their lives. The introduction of sewing machines and Garcia tie dying should assist in developing new skills. The children just completed their inter-house sports meet with the blue team coming out on top. Between school and sports the children help by doing chores around the orphanage including laundry, cleaning, cooking, and dishes. Everyone also pitched in and cleared two acres of land for the planting of cassava (a staple in their diet). The children are eager to help with projects that will improve their diet. A small pig farm is high on the prayer list at the home.

Please pray for the children and workers at the Karen Baird’s Children’s Home. Please pray for their safety and health, for funding for a pig farm, and an increase in the monthly support that is raised for the home. May all the honor and glory from this project be given to God and that the Gospel of Christ continues to be proclaimed in Sierra Leone. God Bless and Thank you!
