YOUR DONATION CHANGES THE LIVES OF WOMEN IN LIBERIA
Due to the 14 years of civil crisis, couple with a year of Ebola virus disease outbreak that claimed the life of over four thousand eight hundred individuals emulating from ten thousand six hundred reported cases according to the World health Organization March 2016 report on the outbreak of Ebola virus in Liberia. This situation left many people traumatized, especially who lost their relatives and love ones as a result of the outbreak.
The people of Liberia face significant barriers to Bible engagement. In rural parts of the country, thousands of people have yet to receive a complete Bible in their heart language. In refugee camps nationwide, men, women and children live with broken hearts amidst unrest at home. And in communities across the country, people suffer in the wake of violence and abuse.
The Bible Society in Liberia, with support from UBS financial partners, is working to make the Bible available and alive for these people—by translating the Bible into unreached languages and equipping suffering people to find healing in God’s Word.
Trauma Healing: Throughout Liberia, people suffer in the aftermath of the world’s greatest tragedies. Rebel militia groups tear through villages and murder innocent people. People who have diseases such as HIV and AIDS live separated from their communities. Refugees cope with displacement and separation from loved ones. In the midst of suffering, people need the hope and healing found in God’s Word. But they often struggle to believe that God can heal their wounds.
Bible Translation: Liberia is a multilingual country, with more than 16 languages and dialects spoken nationwide. But many of these languages and dialects still do not have a complete Bible. To reach those who are still waiting for the life-changing message of God’s Word in their language, the Bible Society in Liberia must finish incomplete Bible translations and update outdated Bible translations.in
Lift up the people around the world who are facing the wounds of trauma on their own.
Pray for God to equip the trauma healing facilitators working to bring spiritual healing through the Bible.
- Ask God to bless new trauma healing programs launching in war-torn regions of the world, such as Jordan.
