At the end of May, a horrific storm blew across the coastal area in Buchanan, Liberia, where our missionary Frido Kinkolenge serves. The Brighter Future Children’s Rescue Center was seriously damaged. I am including Frido’s email and his photos so that you can see the damage. Frido has managed to get some of the facility repaired but most of the ministry areas remain seriously damaged. The areas that still have no roofing are suffering further damage to the elements.
So please prayerfully consider an immediate gift to: The Brighter Future Children’s Rescue Center, Advance #3020790.
You can place this gift in the Sunday offering plate of any United Methodist Church or you can make your check to NC Conference UMC – Advance 3020790 and send it to:
NC Conference UMC – Advance #3020790
700 Waterfield Ridge Place
Garner, NC 27529
You can also give online at: Brighter Future Children Rescue Center
100% of your gift will go to this ministry.
Thank you so much for your generosity. Feel free to email Frido. He would love to hear your words of encouragement and prayer.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Yesterday Saturday, May 25th at the precise hour of 14:12, a heavy storm blowingfrom East to West came with destructive and ravaging purposes in the City of Buchanan. It destroyed hundreds of houses including two UM Churches located in New Buchanan area, a market place located at the welcome gate, street leading to the Brighter Future Children rescue Center. It left women and children injured some in critical condition at the Government hospital in Buchanan; while several homeless families are seeking for a temporarily shelter.
The mat building where we were finding refuge got destroyed too as tarpaulins have not strong resistance and the storm was over when we discovered that we were in disaster!!!
We worked today with some children and youths volunteers to cut branches and remove them from the roof; collected the flying pieces of zinc sheets and arberster….will continue to work how to clean and see how to resume activities at BFC Rescue Center.
