We have the working strategy for the future outreach.....Nov. 2022
On April 1st of this year, our national pastors went to Morica, a sector of 15 villages, to preach the Gospel. On that day, 1042 Muslin people came to Christ. Since that day, we have dug a well, built a church/school building, and registered the land given to us by the Sector Chief.
On November 1st, Pastor Phil Taylor from Batavia, Ohio, and Pastor Andrew Taylor from Johnstown, Ohio with two of his men came to join with us for our trip to hold a special meeting. When we arrived, over 800 people had already assembled outside for the celebration. Pastor Andrew preached and gave the invitation. Following the service, they began to shower us with gifts of fruit, vegetables, chickens, and a goat. Following all this, our visiting pastors baptized 629 people who had already received Christ as their Saviour since the beginning of the church.
The next day we all went back to the village and the two men who came from Pastor Andrew's church installed a solar system into the building for the church and school. When the switch was turned on, the school children began to clap and shout. It was their first time to see electric lights.
A special thanks to all of you who participated in this project. It has been life changing for so many of these people who had never before had an opportunity to hear the Gospel. We are already praying about what new sector of villages the Lord would have us take the Gospel. We sense that we have the working strategy for the future outreach of the hundreds of village sectors just like this one. We are still going to start churches in the cities, but we are going after the village areas as well.
Our churches averaged 929 in attendance in October with110 saved. We are so grateful for our partners who are helping us capture Sierra Leone for Christ.

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.
