Psalm 28:7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him and I am helped; therefore my heart rejoiceth and with my song will I praise him
I bring you greetings from Monrovia in Liberia. In times like these when everything seems to be wrong, there is a reason for us to praise the Lord, He has been our shield and strength our provider in our time of need. As a team in Liberia we are joyful for His unlimited grace and love toward us. This year has been very different and when I look at the work which has been done for the last twelve months despite the circumstances God hands has been in all of it. We give thanks to Him. Frances left the shore of Liberia in March, because of COVID-19 and funding issues she has not been able to come back yet. Her absence has given us the opportunity to demonstrate the skills we have learnt from her teaching and mentoring and she continues to be committed to the team here but we are hoping and praying for her return to Liberia.
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.

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.
