For the love of Sierra Leone~ Update

 

Our Loved Sister Betty Florence

I eagerly awaited the mission statement from the Betty Florence Foundation..

Betty arrived safely on January,13th and has been busy since her feet touched the ground. At 81 she can still surprise many, she lives among the villagers without modern amenity’s, and this is how she prefers it.

Missionary TrailBetty has been a missionary with Mission For Souls, for many years. Her stories of triumph are mingled with heartache, speaking of how she has a two-fold objective, one is to teach the villagers about Jesus Christ, and to assist the children with education. Betty believes the way out of poverty and crime, is to educate any child who is willing to learn. The school relies on donations to operate, since officials reneged on their agreement to help with the funding. Parents are willing to send their children to the school for free education, and keeping the school open is a blessing to many.

Village To Village By Boat

In March, Betty and her team spent 12 days going down river to Mono Kranko, to evangelize. Betty has walked many dirt roads, and been rowed by boat to reach the villages.There is not a pharmacy on every corner, at best you will find a village witch doctor.. Betty brings an arsenal to her small hut every trip, the power of prayer that heals, and her vitamins. She had an attack of stomach virus after sharing the Gospel in Mono Kranko, by the grace of God, she recovered. Preaching through the sickness,she told all who were willing to listen, that Jesus Christ is the savior for all mankind. Many people responded to the Gospel message, asking the Lord to be their savior. I anxiously await listening to her testimony of how God is moving in West Africa. When a man is brought out of a diabetic coma without doctors or medication, but by prayer, who can deny the power of God ? His love never fails.

Children love BettyIn April, Betty and her team was scheduled to visit Lofa County, Liberia. There are many tasks that need to be done, as the Lord enables.

They are constructing a permanent school building in Gbesseh Village, and working with the villagers to better their lives. No matter where Betty walks, her message is to love one another, help each other to make stone soup.. and to know Jesus, the One who loves us the most. Betty’s mission efforts are under funded, accomplishing as she is able each year. Children are taught, wells are dug, churches are planted, and the Gospel has been shared 🙂

Thank you for taking the time to read the good news!

Loving the children

Betty Florence is an extraordinary woman, at the age of 79, she continues her yearly quest as a missionary to Sierra Leone. Her focus is Fakonoh Village,and the outlying areas. Betty and the team live among the people, she feels this is the best way to connect, as she aims to teach the villagers that they need to work together. She was faced with the harsh reality that some did not want her presence, yet on the bright side,those in the villages she has touched love her dearly and wish that she would stay.

Betty has a great heart for the children. Focusing on children’s education. Helping to establish a preschool in Sinbaru, and a grade school in the village. Training can help put an end to generational poverty, yet many do not have the privilege to receive basic education.  

Betty has worked with nine villages where they have constructed two houses, provided food,clothing, and much-needed medical attention, they have also established four churches, and provided funding for a community well. Betty Florence continues to bring hope to severely impoverished family’s, while sharing the love of Jesus Christ with those who need to learn of Him.  Your donation can help extend their efforts.

  • Support for the schools.

Well success
