ELWA Academy is growing!

Right now is a pretty exciting time back in Liberia.
A team from Cedarville U. in Ohio is at ELWA working on the water system.
Steve Kejr (an SIMer who lived in Liberia for around 30 years, and now works at SIM USA in Charlotte) is working on overhauling one of ELWA's generators.
James Kesselly and the ELWA Team are working on developing their central finance and management office for coordinating key aspects of the ministry.
The ECUL Churches just held a pastors training seminar, in partnership with a team from the US, and over 90 pastors and leaders attended!
And... the ELWA Academy is growing! Up until now, the Academy, a Liberian Christian school run by the ELWA management, has been making use of the buildings that belonged to the SIM-run missionary-kid school in the 70s and 80s. There are 392 students there in nursery through 7th grade. But now, they have filled all those classrooms and need 2 additional rooms to get up through 9th grade. Pray along with us for funds to complete this project! Here is a picture, taken today, of the new foundation for this new 2 room Kindergarten extension.

How exciting! Jamie and I attended SIM-Start last weekend and enjoyed spending time talking with Carol Kejr and the O'brien's talking about Liberia before the war. We also met another family that would like to work in Liberia!

God Bless
