“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

CRISIS RELIEF: HAITI

On August 14th, Haiti was rocked by a massive earthquake that has killed over 2,000 people and put thousands more in dire circumstances. Please join us in prayer!

One of the biggest issues is getting aid to people who need it. A blessing in the midst of this tragedy is that our partners at World Hope are in a unique geographical position to deliver clean water for drinking, sanitation, and hygiene. Because of your faithfulness, we were able to send $20,000 to World Hope to aid their response of providing not only clean water, but also fuel, medical help, and food.

CHILD SPONSORSHIP

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.

LIBERIA UPDATE

July 2021 Update: The goal of the Liberia School Support Project was to improve the learning environment in three partner schools through a partnership with Celebrate Church Community Church, World Hope International, and the Wesleyan School System of Liberia. The objectives included renovating and completing two school buildings as well as providing solar power, portable computer systems, and desks to improve the quality of education.

June 2021 Update: The staff of two partner schools in Liberia received training in the management and usage of the Sammy’s Smart Box. The digital box contains 20 Chromebook computers, inbuilt voltage regular, and other accessories for both students and teachers to access thousands of educational content hosted on the cloud.

For the first time, more than five teachers in the training had the opportunity to use computers. This was a dream come true for the staff!

In May 2021, Celebrate Church donated over $125,000 to fund improvements to three Wesleyan schools. And all of the children our families have sponsored are in these schools.

The project includes new desks, benches, and chairs so the children don’t have to sit on dirt floors or concrete blocks, much-needed building repairs, solar systems to provide power for classrooms, and digital SmartBoxes to provide computers and internet access where never provided before. These changes will enhance the learning experience, so the children can thrive and change a culture for generations to come. Work has already begun!

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!”
