Reflections from Momo

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.

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.

Reflections from Momo

Psalm 26: 7 (KJV) that I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving and tell of that wondrous works.

In a time such as this we often think of the problems before us and forget to count our blessings one by one and see what God has done for us. As an organization there many things we need to reflect on and be grateful to our Creator and give Him thanks. Let us look at the shoreline and not focus on the storm we find ourselves in. Let us set our eyes on Jesus who gives us that peace that surpasses all understanding. When I reflect over the last three years ago and see where we have come from and where we are as an organization, God has been with our every step alongside you as prayer intercessors, funders and encouragers and I can only praise the Lord hallelujah. It has not been an easy journey but has been an awesome experience. We started as a team of two persons Frances and myself, now by the grace of God we have seven volunteers, volunteering with their individual skills, talents and time. As Frances continues to mentor and coach the team in Liberia, I can see the transformation in our leadership reflected in our own emotional and mental stability as she encourages us to spiritual maturity. We are praying to continue to fulfill the vision of The Koinonia Trust as we seek to bring healing, hope and beauty from the ashes of people’s lives.
