IN SOULS — MAKE DISCIPLES — HURCHE
WIN SOULS — MAKE DISCIPLES — PLANT CHURCHES
Sierra Leone, on the eastern Atlantic Ocean, is comparable in size to South Carolina. It borders both Liberia and Guinea and is tropical in climate. Though there are many natural resources (diamonds, titanium ore, iron ore, and gold), the people of Sierra Leone remain extremely poor with an average annual income of $1600.
Our plan is simple and Biblical (Matthew 28:19-20):
- Win Souls – Rawlings Foundation camp, elementary & high schools, military conference (partnering with Mike and Diane Peper), and the local church.
- Make Disciples of Jesus Christ – Sunday schools, Bible institute, personal evangelism
- Plant Local Churches – with trained national pastors
- Repeat the process
There is a revival in the country right now. Although they are predominantly Muslim, they are very nominal. Thousands each year are praying to receive Christ, but there are not enough people to follow up/disciple them. No better passage describes the condition of Sierra Leone than the words of Christ found in Matthew 9:36-38.
