Living Light Christian Churches support The Leadership & Education for Africa Project (LEAP), which was formed in 2009 to administrate fundraising efforts for Light Stream Ministries in Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa.
Liberia endured a bloody civil war through the 1990’s and 2000’s, which claimed hundreds of thousands of innocent lives. Once peace was restored to Liberia in 2005, the country was left with its entire infrastructure in ruins – utilities and public services, schools and universities, hospitals and clinics, its economy, and even its culture. There is a desperate need for educated and motivated leaders to rebuild Liberia. We are committed to helping Liberia through our connection to Light Stream Ministries.
Light Stream Ministries cares for a number of churches in Liberia, works together with the broader Church in Liberia through ARM, runs Light Stream Academy School, provides practical care for children who have been orphaned due to the Ebola outbreak in 2014, and is developing a medical clinic. Led on the ground by dedicated Liberians and assisted by fundraising efforts in the US and in the UK, LEAP exists to facilitate this effort to build a healthy and prosperous Liberia.
