Sierra Leone

The first book Ibrahim could call his own…

February 28, 2014

Of all the experiences I could share after returning a couple weeks ago from Sierra Leone with the 25 Project, here is one unforgettable memory from my time there. Upon the boys’ arrival at the Hope Center for camp the first day, I was looking for a few boys I was more familiar with because of stories I have heard from my husband, Kent, or the fact that I have family and friends who sponsor them through the 25 Project’s…

The Feeding Program…It is a Beginning

February 19, 2014

The latest 25 Project team of 11 headed to Sierra Leone arrived at my house at 9:30am to carpool to DFW airport and begin the 20+ hour set of flights to step into Africa.  Particularly amazing was the fact we would experience a day in the life of street children living in Waterloo, Sierra Leone while on the trip.  Our team interacted with children like Abdul and his friends to feel, touch, witness and share the life of living on the streets….

Waterloo – Home To Hundreds of Street Kids

July 17, 2013

I just returned from a trip to Sierra Leone and I can say I’m unashamedly fired up about the ministry God is allowing the 25 Project to be involved in there.  He has opened the door for tremendous impact upon street kids in a community just outside Freetown named “Waterloo”. Hundreds of boys wander the streets of Waterloo everyday, doing odd jobs to get enough money to buy a plate of rice.  Some days they eat, some days they don’t….
