As a part of the Love
for Liberia missional emphasis
, Pastor Ed Rutenkroger will be going to Liberia with a volunteer–in–mission work team
from across the NC Annual Conference this summer. The dates of the mission are July 23 – August 6.
The work will be multi–varied and will allow participants to have a range of experiences helping the people at Ganta Station in Nimba County,
Liberia. Pastor Ed will have the opportunity to help Liberian teachers conduct a summer day camp enrichment program for both the junior and senior
high divisions. This camp will concentrate on math, English, general science, biology, chemistry, and physics. He will also offer teacher training as well.
The trip will cost about $3,000 per participant. Pastor Ed is responsible for the entire cost of the trip. If you would like to donate money to help Pastor Ed
you can put a check in the church offering plate to New Hope UMC clearly marked PASTOR'S LIBERIA TRIP.
The most important work of all will be—
formulating relationships with the Liberian people
. Volunteers will discover what it means to be a partner in missions. To do that, they
must be flexible and have a willingness to work hard. More than that team members must have a willing heart who desire to let the
Holy Spirit teach them about the sharing of love through word and deed.
