A 5-DAY MISSIONS TRIP TO SIERRA LEONE
Our Mission Trip to Sierra Leone, Freetown Oct. 27-31, 2017 was great and worthy of praises to Him and Him alone.
23 converts were baptized by immersion on Saturday Oct. 28, 2017
7 Souls were won to Christ on Sunday Oct. 29, 2017 as you view the photos of baptism down the stream and converts being prayed for.
The other photos show a former unsuccessful Cinema/Theater or Video club where soccer matches were been shown now available to rent for Church use at a cost Le 4,000,000.00 an equivalent of $ 550.00 per annum. Being such a strategic location for members, we manage to make a part payment to hold it and against forfeiting it. Pray for Sierra Leone and help if you can.
ON A SAD NOTE:
The other Pictures show SUGAR LOAF MOUNTAIN, where the landslide/ flood happened August 14, 2017 costing 450-1000 lives according to a security personnel on the ground. It is an area never to be inhabited according to Colonial Masters which was denied. A man who once came to remind and to advise the people to avoid the area was brutally murdered with many of his parts cut some 10 years ago. It was on the 10th year of that man’s murder on the spot that the unfortunate incident happened with many lives perished.
This is the country that was hit by an 11 years rebellion where many were amputated at a choice of the victim, long or short sleeve, rape and Ebola virus causing many to scatter into African countries as refugees who have and are still returning.
Do please pray for that country especially towards an upcoming Presidential Election.

POWER OF GOD RAINS DOWN IN SANDALI AND SAMBUYA VILLAGES WITH SIGNS AND WONDERS
Although we do encounter difficulties in transporting Church members and other participants to Gospel Crusade grounds such as the recent one in Sandali village between Oct. 26– 28, 2012, which we are grateful to the Almighty for His leading and for 49 won souls to Christ with 242, 259 and 309 in attendance for the three days respectively.
The most recent Crusade was in Sambuya village Nov. 16–17, 2012 with an unusual crowd drawn in. The program ended on Sunday Nov. 18,2012 where a great service was held under cashew trees in Jambanjelly village with a total number of 50 souls won to Christ.
This visit to these villages through such Crusades, being first of its kind has brought a new experience and several villages are now open to this ministry for a visit with the Gospel’’, remarked one civil servant who lives in the village.
Though the Crusade was marred by evil manifestation through big snakes which were killed during the crusade nights (as shown in pictures) but healing, deliverance and a miracle of halting an unusual rain through prayers of the Saint as led by Pastor Bidwell Mendy was evident of the presence of the power of God at the crusade ground in Sandally village.
The awesome manifestation of the power of God drew great jubilation and thanks from the crowd to the Almighty for being a prayer answering God.
