Now fully understanding the risks, he has chosen to return as an ambassador for Christ and the Ludhiana Christian Dental College to continue serving the people of Liberia at though Ganta Methodist Hospital.

272. MissionCast – Water For Liberia

Haiti

Liberia has been on our minds lately after the visit of Flomo Shaffa Seward, the VIM Coordinator for the United Methodist Church in Liberia. While in Missouri he was hosted by Franklin Walker who led a VIM team from St. James UMC to Liberia last year. Shaffa was the person who showed the St. James team around. While in Columbia Shaffa had lunch with Bishop Schnase and the Office of Creative Ministries staff.

One of the challenges in Liberia is pure water. Shaffa visited with Jeff Baker about the pure water program in Haiti. We are grateful to UMTV for this video and the permission to use it. UMCOR’s Water for Life program in Liberia addresses this challenge. Donations for this ministry may be made by sending contributions to the Conference Office clearly labeling the gift as Water for Life, Liberia – Advance Special #3020811.
