God loves Africa and calls us to love it too – since Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in Africa with crushing physical and spiritual needs our hearts compel us to go and serve. We believe that by helping to develop systems that provide for life’s basic needs such as clean water, medical services and food we can help to move communities in Sierra Leone closer to what God intends for them. Showing the love of Christ in practical ways leads to opportunities to share about his kingdom, providing healing for the whole person, body, soul and spirit.
Because of the great need, clean water has become a hallmark of our work in Sierra Leone. Utilizing the simple, affordable and portable method of manual borehole making, our teams have provided the country with over 300 wells since 2011. This means that thousands of people no longer have to labor to find clean drinking water, nor suffer the deadly effects of consuming contaminated water.
Clean water has proven to be a great access ministry into communities where our church planting team has been able to engaged and plant churches in dozens of rural villages. We are working towards raising up an indigenous church planting movement, believing that the body of Christ in its local expression is the hope for this world.
