LIBERIA BACKGROUND

Liberia was founded in 1822 by freed blacks from the USA. In succeeding years, a cycle of oppression and tribal rivalries eventually led to a coup in 1980. Charles Taylor, a warlord and former president, instigated a series of civil wars in 1989. The wars claimed the lives of more than 200,000 Liberians and displaced up to a million into neighboring countries. A peace agreement ended fighting in August 2003. For more details see the U.S. Department of State website.


LIBERIA TODAY

Liberia is now finally experiencing a sustained period of peace. However, the economy is horrendous. It is estimated that 80-90% of Liberia's adult population is currently unemployed as a result of the war, which also denied the majority of Liberia's young people the opportunity to attend school to receive the benefit of an education. Fortunately, orphanages and schools have begun to spring up all over the country. However, their needs are overwhelming, and orphanages and schools are struggling to survive.


NEW HOPE MISSION INTERNATIONAL - School and Orphanage

Founded in 2007, New Hope Mission International is a recognized Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) of the Republic of Liberia. New Hope was founded by Ms. Louise Reeves, a native Liberian and member of Grace Reformed Presbyterian Church, Baltimore, MD. With encouragement and financing from her American church, Ms. Reeves was able to begin two important projects in Dolo's Town, Liberia: New Hope Community School, which instructs 500 students, and New Hope Home, which houses 50 orphans.


HOW NEW HOPE GETS ITS SUPPORT

New Hope Home is solely sponsored by members and friends of Grace Reformed Presbyterian Church through a child sponsorship program. New Hope Community School is a private Christian school. Children from Dolo's Town are allowed to attend free of charge. New Hope's teachers are all certified. Staff, teachers and the entire school goes from month to month on faith, completely dependent upon God to provide what is needed to keep the school doors open. Humanly speaking, the school could not survive without the help of its friends and outside parties who take an interest in these needy students in Dolo's Town, Liberia. (by Dr. Daniel Broadwater)



FACTS:

New Hope Community School is a private Christian school, free of charge.

A gift of $25 will support one student's education for an entire year.

LETTER OF THANKS FROM NEW HOPE DIRECTOR, LOUISE REEVES

WRITTEN TO HER AMERICAN CHURCH FAMILY & PASTOR:

August 27, 2009

Dear Pastor Dan and My Church Family,

Since the moment I made a vow to God to help in the growth and strengthening of New Hope Mission in 2007, God has been ordering my steps from then on. While on the narrow path to do God’s will, He has walked with me and placed me in the hands of a loving, God-fearing, kind-hearted church family. I am so grateful to have a church family that is willing and openly sharing in the vision of New Hope Mission. I give all glory to the Almighty God. It has been two years since the official start of New Hope Mission, and to look back brings joyful and wonderful tears to my eyes to have come this far. I am thankful to have found my church family while one day shuffling through items on the table of a bank and reading a yellow flyer that pointed me straight to Grace Presbyterian Church. God works in miraculous ways. I just want to say to Pastor Dan and My Church Family, thank you for persevering with me and walking the narrow path with me to continue the hope and love of God in Liberia, West Africa.

You have also shown my family and me how to be disciples of God and to spread the Good News throughout the world. Thank you for your time in sharing your love for God with our family.


With Love,
Louise Reeves and Family
