These are Christmas greetings in 3 of the languages from Sierra Leone in which we are currently working.    Below you can read Luke 2:10 in these same languages.

Much is happening in Sierra Leone.    Literacy classes continue in the Themne and Mende languages.   The Krio primer was just completed and there will be 12 Tutors trained after Christmas to begin trial classes with the new material.  A number of churches have also expressed an interest in beginning Literacy classes.

The Gbanneh Village School and Literacy Project is underway.  Feeding programs, church services, women’s Literacy classes and a Primary School have already begun with plans for Elementary and Secondary schools in the future.  There has been some gardening/farming start-ups looking toward the possibility of micro-enterprise programs.

Thank you so much for helping to make all of these dreams a reality and sharing the love of God through the kindness of your giving.
