The month of April was a busy time for the outreach team working in Pujehun Province in Sierra Leone. The outreach effort was led by Rev. Peter Kainwo (right), the conference director of Evangelism and Church Planting. Outreach consisted of multiple presentations of the Jesus Film in the Mende language and community visitation among the Vai People by 19 volunteers who were trained prior to the outreach effort in household evangelism.
In all, a total of 6,489 persons viewed the film and 4,362 made decisions to follow Christ over the course of the campaign. Although they would like to have continued on to additional towns and villages, rain made the road impassible.
At the end of the campaign, a team of conference leaders traveled into Liberia to visit with a congregation eager to align themselves with the Sierra Leone United Brethren in Christ.
Rev. Kainwo asks that we continue to pray for their outreach efforts, and for the identification and training of local leaders. The Sierra Leone Conference thanks everyone for the prayer support and for the funds made available for the transportation needs through Global Ministries Antioch Fund.
