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.Continue reading “TKT Newsletter Issue No 6”
Today we did a workshop for a youth organisation who are living beside us….they are called Brighter minds for a progressive future. We taught on the practice of self reflection, the defined roles in a team and communication skills
In September we commence our study and reading project and are deeply thankful to the Irish Embassy/Irish Aid in Monrovia for their support in this project.
We will have an additional four graduates helping to supervise the classes.
These classes will offer a safe space for the local children and youth to improve their reading skills and receive help with their homework. It will also give us an opportunity to increase their knowledge around health and well-being as well as giving them opportunities to develop personally.
