Some brethren from the European fellowships, Dan Cashford from Medway (UK) and Jan Pieter van Oostende from Dordrecht (Holland) recently visited our newest assembly in Gbarnga, the capital of Bong County in Liberia.
The assembly in Gbarnga has been going for about a year now and has been growing steadily. In April when Pastor Ron Carslake (South Africa) visited them, a piece of land was acquired for $750. Recently a small structure of bamboo was constructed by our brethren, with roofing sheeting supplied by the Mission Fund. They were very proud to show it to Dan and Jan Pieter.
There are 4 brothers who are responsible for the running of the assembly. This is quite a remarkable testimony of unity as the 4 of them have very different backgrounds concerning the civil war that took place in Liberia. Two of the brothers were part of Charles Taylor’s army, one was part of the rebel army and one was a victim of the rebels. Since they are born again they are working together in doing the Lord’s work in Gbarnga.
