Mission Project Specifics
International Ministries (IM) seeks to raise $150 per child each year to provide financial support for 43 students in Liberia to attend kindergarten through grade 10. The Liberia Direct Baptist Missionary Conference (LDBMC) will waive one semester’s tuition for these students as a sign of commitment.
The project will be managed by the LDBMC in collaboration with the Rev. Dr. Charles H. Jones, IM area director for Europe, the Middle East and Liberia.
It is anticipated that this project will require a 14-year commitment to allow all of the 43 students to graduate.
