EXCITING UPDATE

A dump truck has been purchased to haul the clay based dirt and then the completed interlocking building blocks to the building site of the new school and church.

    The biggest industry in the country is the mining industry. They have come to our aid on several occasions because they say we are good neighbors. That is God’s plan for every Christian.
On our most recent trip to Sierra Leone my good friend and Vice President of WEO Ministries, Dan Yanchak, traveled with me. Many things were on our agenda including getting to Makungi to lay the foundation of our new school and church. For the first year the church and school will use the same facility. Dan Yanchak is a mining engineer here in the United States and some of our works are in the mining district. The largest, Rutile and Boxite, are used in the production of priceless metals such as Titanium.
Because of Dan’s expertise in mining we made contact with the mining people, and then eventually the CEO of these companies. Dan talked with these top officials and explained our plan asked if they could assist us. They ask what we
needed and Dan told them we needed some heavy equipment to bring clay to make blocks for building and to clear the land. They then
responded they would be glad to assist with what we are doing. They said they like what we are doing because their workers didn’t come to work drunk and their families are staying together as family units.

The Shipping Container

IMG_0577 Container 1 Container 3 Container 4

The shipping container has been packed and is on its way to Sierra Leone. The container was packed full of much needed supplies for the ministry there. Equipment, uniforms and supplies were collected and are now heading toward its destination. The container was purchased and will be placed on the ground and used as a building. Much remains to be done, so continue to pray for the ministry Sierra Leone and Liberia.

SPECIAL PRAYER Request

Dr. Arnold has received a request from Liberia, the neighboring
county to Sierra Leone, to come and survey the work that startedliberia_small_map
because of Liberians who had come to Sierra Leone, received Christ as Savior, and returned to their home country with the Gospel of Christ.

He will be traveling in July to meet with the local leadership about
helping this ministry to the people of Liberia.

He has two specific requests for his trip:
1. Pray for God’s direction in the country of Liberia as they seek spiritual help.
2. Pray for the necessary money for this trip. Airfare alone is $3,000 plus food, local travel
and lodging. Your prayers for God’s leading in Africa will be much appreciated.

If you can help with these costs please indicate “LIBERIA” in the memo section of your check.

Hydroform Block Maker

Solomon Gorvie has sent us photos of the Hydraform machine that has been donated to the ministries in Sierra Leone. Praise God for His blessings! We thank God for those who respond to the leading of the hand of God in their life. The Hydraform Interlocking Soil Block is an interlocking building block used in many African countries for construction purposes. The Hydraform block is made from a mixture of soil, cement and water.

The mix is hydraulically compressed to form a high quality interlocking soil block. Soil from the building site can be used to   manufacture building blocks. The Hydraform compressed earth block is cost  savings that are  involved during the construction process as only around 30% of the structure requires mortar between the blocks. This will make the building of churches and schools less costly, more efficient in building process, and gives us the ability to use the monies donated to this ministry to go further in sharing the Gospel.
