Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. — Matthew 28:19-20
In 2019, Celebrate Church provided the funds to dig ten wells in Liberia at a cost of $100,000 in conjunction with World Hope International. World Hope followed up the digging of the wells by showing the Jesus film in the same villages. Hundreds committed their lives to Christ as a result, and received the Living Water.
Prior to the wells, the people in these villages drank water from nearby creeks and rivers contaminated by bacteria. Three out of ten children never lived past the age of five due to water-born illnesses. The ones who do survive are riddled with digestive illnesses and malnutrition their entire lives. In 2020, Celebrate Church sent a delegation of six to visit Liberia, to meet the people impacted by the wells and witness the effects of the work completed.
“Words cannot describe the experience! We did a great thing installing the wells. We gave life to these beautiful people and they are beyond grateful! It was amazing to see the gratitude up close and personal. They asked me to pass their Thank You along to our entire congregation! Thank you, thank you, with tears of joy!”
It takes a village to ensure that a child can grow up safely, securely, and with access to education and hope for the opportunities in the future. Through a range of programs, your sponsorship contributes to tuition assistance, school uniforms and shoes, school supplies, food support, spiritual guidance, community and school development, teacher training, and more.
With your support, sponsored children are launched to be agents of love and hope in Liberia.
On November 8, Pastor Keith announced the Celebrate Church donation of $50,000 for a sanitation project on Peace Island in Monrovia, Liberia. A groundbreaking ceremony recently took place for the construction of new toilet facilities, a solar-powered water tower with a standby generator to pump water to kiosks, and the renovation of two existing public toilets. This project will provide all 35,000 inhabitants of the island with access to safe, potable water, sanitation facilities, and primary waste collection, all geared to improve their health, well-being, and living conditions.
It's awesome when God's people demonstrate generosity and can make an impact on so many people!
