Rainy Season in Liberia

A Fruitful Season

The team has successfully produced over thirty thousand quality compressed earth blocks in two counties of Liberia. Now they are entering in to a season of preparation for the beginning of the dry season in January 2018. The Lord is continuing to open doors and make new connections to establish the role of the 4TL family in Liberia. The rainy season has begun so the work is shifting from block production and construction to our consulting ministry where we are working directly with Liberian organizations with a vision and passion from God. We are working with them to help find new ways for them to thrive in their own spheres of influence without the dependence on foreign financial support so that they can be more effective in their own ministries.

Talking on the radio to encourage locals to get involved with the Fairshake Village project by giving whatever they can to the project. Most people expect to be benefited but we are encouraging volunteerism and community.

Above is a visit to the Beulah Retreat and Development center in Bomi County, Liberia, to do the profiling for the foundation on the First wing of Beulah Mission School. The children are learning so much as we were able to spend time with them reciting bible verses and ABCs. The top picture is the beginnings of the sustainability agriculture projects for Beulah Retreat and Devopment center. Cafmacp is praying for financial support to finish the construction of the first school wing of the school where they have the foundation 90% completed and earthblocks already produced.
