Church planting in Malawu; OCC in Lofa

Dennis Aggrey, CRCA's mission director, reports that in the last two weeks, CRCA has been involved heavily in church planting efforts in a village called Malawu, a town heavily dedicated to witchcraft and the bush society. "The spirit of God is greatly moving," writes Dennis. Malawu is in Lofa County.

The first two weeks of February, CRCA spearheaded Samaritans Purse ministry Operation Christmas Child distribution in upper Lofa. "We gave out shoe boxes to over 20,000 kids. This was the best OCC distribution ever in Libieria," he reports.

Jawajeh & Yangayah

New Ministry Opening in Jawajeh and Yangayah

In February 2007, we officially opened our church planting ministry in Jawajeh and Yangayah amongst the Gola tribe. Pastor Rennie Carr and his wife are the pastor leaders. Davidson and Mrs. Mulbah were assigned to do Community Health Education in the Jawajeh area. Presently, we have six churches with three underway for worship place construction.

Pastor Shiref and the late Ma Watter were assigned in the Yangajah area. Presently, we have eight churches planted in this area. Watter and Shiref also did Community Health Education. The “Jesus Film” was shown in all 14 villages and over 4,000 people prayed to receive Christ. Up to this point, we have 23 churches and 27 pastors.
