Mission to Liberia 2017
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV
Last month, my team and I traveled to Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa to conduct a Pastors Summit and preach an evening Gospel crusade. Prior to the Liberia mission, over the years, I have traveled to other nations—in Africa and Central America—to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ, but West Africa had a special place in my heart because I am a decedent of that region of Africa. It was a high honor to teach and preach the Word of God in my ancestral “mother-land.”
After His resurrection, Jesus command believers to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, and that miraculous signs would follow those who believe, including casting out demons and laying hands on the sick, and they would recover. In fact, the gospel of Mark further promised that the Lord would work with “sent ones” by confirming His Word through all kinds of accompanying signs (Mark 15:15-20).
The Liberian people were extremely receptive and hungry for the Word of God. Over the course of our seven days of ministry to pastors and preaching a gospel crusade, God certainly fulfilled His promise. During the Pastor Summit, almost fifty pastors were empowered to lead and serve; and hands were laid on each of them to confirm them in the faith and to inspire them with words of knowledge and words of wisdom. I was honored to preach the good news of the Gospel in the evening crusade. Many sinners received Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, the sick were healed, and the Holy Spirit manifested other documented signs, wonders, and miracles.
Although the enemy came to hinder us in Belgium, on our return flight to the U.S., God worked it all out for our good. At the beginning of our mission, we departed for Liberia with the hope of the glory of God and we returned with a victorious report unto God’s glory. Hallelujah! In my spirit, I can hear the nations calling saying, “come over here and help us.” In the spirit of a functional apostolic ministry—in deed—not just in a title, I am committed to go into all the world because Jesus said, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matt. 24:14). May God bless Liberia!
