THROUGH THEIR EYES
In addition to traditional academic subjects, the kiddos at our schools are taught God's Word through art. Recently Sarah Miller, one of our missionaries, shared the ten commandments from Exodus 20. When the kids went home after school that day, each boy and girl had a colorful paper to take home and share with their friends, family, and neighbors!
AT THIS MOMENT
Just under 100 guests gathered for Lifegate’s This Is Our Culture event in early November. Over $7,000 was raised to assist Lifegate and our work with the people of Sierra Leone. We look forward to seeing everyone next year on the first day of November! Thank you Chris Lyons of Country Financial in Waverly, IL. The event would not have been possible without your partnership and Platinum Sponsorship.
AROUND THE CORNER
Sierra Leone, a country half the size of Illinois with half the population of Illinois, is composed of 25 different languages (some languages have millions of speakers, while others only have dozens). Currently, we have audio-recorded Bible stories in Krio, Temne, and Limba. In 2018, we would like to record those same stories in three new languages: Mende, Sherbo, and Kono.
Lifegate asks that you would pray for the ministry as we seek to record the Bible in three new languages. Pray that we can find qualified speakers and that the recording process would go well.
