The Lulu Tree prevents tomorrow’s orphans by equipping today’s families through the local church — and plants and repairs churches so they can then equip families.
Mosques can be found in nearly every village in Sierra Leone, but evangelical churches are rare. Out of desperation, many believers find themselves in a mosque simply because they long for fellowship and have no other option. Will you give them another option?
To date, 16 pastors have been trained through a local Sierra Leone pastoral training program provided by GEM Ministries. Seven churches have been planted, and countless other villages await — where a church is lacking, we raise up cell group leaders who fill the void by reading Scripture to the villagers each week, overseen by a pastor.
It only costs between $2000-$3000 to build a church. It costs another $2400 to partner with a pastor for two years, helping him to develop a sustainable business that will care for him and his family following those 24 months. And all for the priceless beauty of seeing villages — and a nation — turn to Christ.
Pastor David Zawu is the overseer of three churches in Liberia — House of Judah, House of Prayers, and House of Fellowship. It is his hope to see the church become a bright light in Liberia, lifting his people out of darkness and despair through the hope of Jesus Christ.
It is our hope to be able to provide a microloan program to these churches, and to help Pastor Zawu plant churches. Please join us in praying for these faithful brothers and sisters.
One of the major needs in the South Sudan communities is the reconstruction of churches following violent windstorms.
The greatest desire we have is to see souls saved, to see families reunited with their heavenly Father, to see love poured out on a war-ravaged nation and righteousness and peace sown in the once bloodied fields of their ancestors.
In order to do this, we partner with local churches whose pastors are men of God eager to serve their people. Many times, however, these churches have been destroyed by either natural disasters or by war. Would you help us to plant and reconstruct these humble shelters so these men can continue to serve their people?
