…As Harvest Bible Chapel-SOGOM Harvest’s Partnership Grow — By: Augustine N. Myers – A seven-man delegation from the Harvest Bible Chapel in the United States and Canada is in Liberia as guest of the Servants of God Outreach Ministries (SOGOM Harvest) located behind the Liberia Broadcasting System Compound in Paynesville.
The visit of the Team is part of continued partnership between SOGOM Harvest-Liberia and Harvest Bible Chapel-USA, especially in the areas of Church planting and Education.
The Head of the Delegation, Pastor Brian White said he was happy to be in Africa for the first time and described their visit to Liberia as wonderful.
According to Pastor White, the Harvest Bible Chapel delegation was in Liberia to do experience sharing with their SOGOM Harvest counterpart and strategize on Church planting in the spread of the Gospel across Liberia.
He further noted that the purpose of their visit to Liberia was to better understand the culture of the Country so that they can assist SOGOM Harvest plant more churches.
Pastor White further said they were in Liberia to embark upon a planned project for the construction of SOGOM Harvest Christian School to provide quality Christian primary education to hundreds of Liberian children.
He pointed out that what moves his heart for Liberia is seeing a Country that had gone through different times but is working very hard to get to a better place, and to see churches including SOGOM Harvest promulgating the message of salvation through Jesus Christ.
He said following his return to the United Sates he will serve as a goodwill Ambassador and encourage others to visit Liberia and support the partnership between SOGOM Harvest and the Harvest Bible Chapel.
Pastor White described the Liberian people as strong, good and loving people and that Harvest Bible Chapel would continue its partnership with SOGOM Harvest to see the planting of more churches and the establishment of Christian schools.
He said what the delegation had been impressed with is that everyone interacted with is very friendly and caring, something he noted is not really in the United States (hospitality of almost all the Liberian people), hoping to return after one year.
Pastor White commanded the leadership of SOGOM Harvest for efforts in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ, and molding the minds of Liberian children through quality Christian education.
For his part, the General Overseer of the Servants of God Outreach Ministries (SOGOM Harvest), Rev. Moses W. Wheigar expressed satisfaction for the visit of the seven men, majority of whom are senior pastors from five different Congregations of the Harvest Bible Chapel both in the United States and Canada.
He welcomed initiative for a partnership to plant more churches across Liberia, and efforts empower and strengthen existing SOGOM Harvest Churches in Monrovia and other parts of the Country.
Pastor Wheigar disclosed that the construction of a 3-story school building is a major project at an estimated cost of 72 thousand United States dollars.
He commanded the Harvest Bible Chapel Family for continued partnership with SOGOM Harvest leading to the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ across Liberia and educational benefits for Liberian students most of whom are less fortunate in society.
