    I was in Liberia shortly after Martha Mitkos and Jacob Fiene’s visit. The leadership of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Liberia is very grateful for LMI and excited about the possibilities LMI makes possible (as described in your article). This special effort enables the church say and show “We care!” It also gives the church the opportunity to say “We love because Jesus first loved us, let us tell you about Him!” Jesus came that we might have life and have it in abundance! (1 John 4:19 and John 10:10)

  2. Greetings from Marquette, Michigan, USA!

    I have been very interested in reading the latest LMI news taking place in Liberia, Africa and I wish you God’s blessings as you proceed forward with this important program!

    Several years ago I twice visited my daughter who was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guinea, West Africa. I observed first hand the devastating effects of malaria on the people. In November 2012 I was blessed to take part in the LMI Pilot Project in Kenya, East Africa and thus have personal understanding as to the positive impact of the education and distribution of bed nets to help eradicate malaria. Through education, distribution and treatment, malaria can indeed be a disease of the past! With God all things are possible! Bless you as you continue the cause in Liberia!

    My role with mission work at Redeemer Lutheran Church here in Marquette brought me to your Blog and I look forward to sharing your work with others. Together we will be reading about your LMI journey and praying for you as well as the people of Liberia whose lives you will touch. To God be the Glory!

    In Him,
