“Easter Sunday was a magnificent day...”
“Easter Sunday was a magnificent day in every respect. The busses transporting our members from all 19 of our churches began arriving at the Rawlings Foundation camp facilities around 9:00 AM. We had planned two baptismal services for that day....one before and one after the church service. I began baptizing as soon as the first bus arrived. We baptized 262 people that day. Because the 4 Morica churches were late in their arrival, we had to cancel the second baptismal service in order for them to be able to get back to Morica before dark.
When we started the Worship Service, we had far exceeded the number for which we had planned. The number, including the children, was around 2700. My son-in-law, Abdul, gave a wonderful message on the resurrection and when the invitation was given, 643 adults and children made a profession of faith. Everyone returned to their homes tired, but safe. They were excited about what God had done that day.
We share this day with you because this is what you have made possible. This all began on March 13th, 2009, with about 35 people meeting outside under a tarpaulin to give some protection from the very hot sun. Thank you for stepping out in faith, taking a risk by investing in the vision presented to you by two people in their late 60’s. We love you for what you have done for our Lord, His work, and us.

As you may know, the Rawlings Foundation has invested in Youth camps in countries around the world and one of those countries is Sierra Leone. My Son-in-law and daughter are privileged to represent the Rawlings Foundation by overseeing the camp. The camp is located on 42 acres of beach-front property. The Foundation is in the process of developing the camp and have already completed a pavilion, kitchen, dug a well, and have a good start on landscaping the property.
Although the camp has not been completed, it has already hosted thousands of young people with thousands of young people being saved. Though Sierra Leone is a predominately Muslim country, the camp has already proven itself to be a bridge in reaching the Muslim young people of this country.
Two weeks ago an Islamic high school came to the camp with 543 students in attendance. Out of that number, 378 accepted Christ along with the Principal, the Vice Principal, and
6 of the teachers. We are so excited about the future of this ministry.
