God’s faithfulness in the past encourages us today. We are asking the Lord to put on people’s hearts what part they are to have in this ministry. We give God praise for the financial support that comes in to enable us to initiate and complete projects for the people of Liberia. The office needs water delivered to the water tower for toilets and hand washing, janitorial supplies, electricity and internet.

Your Donation – Liberia’s Hope
The donations from a dear couple from Ontario, Canada paid for 4 wells. Their gifts have provided safe and clean water to serve about 12,000 villagers who live in the interior of Liberia.
Thank you for these great gifts !
Due to the generosity of people like you bags of donated clothes are distributed at the Omega Orphanage in Bomi County; Pastor Eric has found a dress for a little princess.
Little things may give great joy
This pick-up truck was donated to Village Ministries (now Vision Impact Liberia) to be sold for funds for the general fund. It was indeed sold at a good price and the money was sent to Liberia.
. . . and most important of all; donations are enabling the preaching of the Gospel with Liberians coming to know Christ and with fellowships being established even in Muslim villages.
Firstly, Vision Impact Liberia Society is accountable to God who has called us to teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Liberia; who sees all and knows all that we do. Everything we have, including the funds, belongs to God and the health of our personal relationship with Him cannot be broken by mismanagement of what is His.
Pastor Eric Sumo is responsible to direct and develop the ministry work in Liberia, West Africa and with Helen Fletcher to manage the choice of ministry and the financial income and outlay of ministry donations.
