Reflections from Frances

‘Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete’ James Ch. 1 vs 4

It has been a long season of waiting, enduring and persevering while I was in Ireland. We cope with all the losses that we have suffered due to Covid 19. From not just the loss of so many life’s but the continued isolation and repeated lockdown which has been inflicted on us. The fear of the unknown and the future tangible for many, there is a sense of a different norm as we continue to persevere through this season. The above verse was one God dropped into my mind early one morning and I looked it up and found it in the first chapter of James. It is part of a passage that encourages us to keep pressing on despite trials and tribulations, why? Because there is a wonderful promise at the end; there is an opportunity for growth that deepens our faith and character. The definition of perseverance is to do something despite difficulties or delays. It is difficult, it is challenging, it is tiresome, and it can even be unfair. However, I want to use this opportunity to encourage you no matter what trial you are facing, no matter what restrictions you are experiencing keep pressing on, don’t give up or give in but draw on Gods strength, lean on Him because this season will pass. Just as we have entered spring here and the season of winter has passed so your season of difficulty whether it has been caused by Covid or by some other trial it too shall come to an end. Let us keep reaching out and keep encouraging one another. Thank you for all the support, for all the prayers and keep remembering our team in Liberia as we seek to demonstrate Gods love in a difficult environment.

Anna’s Christmas Day Dip

Winter Fundraiser

Hey everyone,
It’s time for a Winter Fundraiser for the Koinonia Trust.
What could be more braver than a dip in the ice cold Atlantic Ocean on one of the most special days of the year?
Christmas Day is a day for giving- unwrapping neatly wrapped presents under the Christmas tree and enjoying good food and classic Christmas movie favourites with our families.
This year, while I look forward to the celebrations, I also want to take a little time to give something back to a cause that is close to my heart and I am asking you to  please show a little support if you can.

To support the fundraiser and donate please click the GoFundMe me link below.

The Koinonia trust continues to work amidst Covid-19. Unfortunately funding we had hoped to get internally in Liberia has been diverted to support the limited health services.
Therefore, as we move in to 2021, the Koinonia Trust is facing uncertain times as resources are limited. Operational fees such as the rent on the compound will be due in early Spring.  These premises is the epi-centre of where all the amazing project work takes place- right in the heart of the community.
It is not just the hub for all operational activities but also homes to some of our most valuable assets- the project workers.

IMPORTANT FUNDING UPDATE FROM OUR FOUNDER

The Koinonia Trust continues to work in our local community amidst COVID-19 and the donor support we receive at this time is crucial.

Unfortunately the core funding we had hoped to get in the second half of 2020 from organization’s internally in Liberia has been diverted to support the limited health services and we now have very little resources and funds going in to 2021.

If you could help by donating, organising a fundraiser or supporting us in anyway please contact us.
