Mission to Liberia
Since 1989, two civil wars have torn apart Liberia, and while the wars ended in 2003, the country is still undergoing reconstruction. Many of the Liberians returning home are poor, under-educated, and confronted with debilitating inflation. The majority of youth are unemployed and disillusioned .
The Mission to Liberia, coordinated by Christiana James, collects school supplies, computers and other supplies that makes the world of difference for the children of Dorpoh.
The missionary focus of the Methodist Church, from its onset, was clearly established by John Wesley himself, as recorded in the 1745 Annual Conference Rules for Helpers. He states, “You have nothing to do but to save souls. Therefore, spend and be spent in this work. It is not you rbusiness to preach so many times, and to take care of this or that society; but to save as many souls as you can; to bring as many sinners as you possibly can to repentance, and with all yourpower to build them up in that holiness without which they can not see the Lord.”
