When you sponsor a child you are providing for their nutrition, health, and daily wellness. This enables them to focus on discipleship and education thereby breaking the vicious cycle of poverty. Because of your commitment and compassion, we have the opportunity to accompany these children on their journey through life and see what God does in them and through them in their local communities.

$20,000 Construction Project Underway!

 

Over the last few years, Myer and Marie have taken steps to centralize the different segments of their ministry all onto the Voice of Victory church campus.

In 2019, the Myer Torbor Academy was completed and sits adjacent to the church. This is where all the NHCV children attend both church and school. In addition, a security fence has been erected surrounding the property.

In 2020, after a dramatic spike in rent made the existing NHCV home no longer affordable, we decided to utilize the vacant school (due to COVID) to house the children temporarily. The school has many rooms, including three bathrooms and a kitchen, which was ideal for our purposes. At the same time, the roof of the church was blown off during a storm and much repair was required. But God uses challenges to accomplish great things!

The decision was made to renovate the church in order to support a second floor. The work has begun and the upstairs will function as a dormitory with four bedrooms, a bathroom, and a dining room. Once completed, this will solve a number of challenges from safely transporting a growing number of children as well as the budgetary expense of fuel.

While our existing budget allows for basic necessities, this undertaking will require additional help. Just as God has directed our steps, we pray that He is directing your heart to help us in this construction project. Your generous giving has fed, clothed, educated, and provided healthcare and love to our children.

God has used your generosity to change the trajectory of these children’s lives. Our sustainable model has shown both immediate and long-term benefits for them. Two of our graduates have gone on to higher learning and we hope to hire them one day as teachers at the Myer Torbor Academy! Another graduate, Katie, is now employed by New Hope and is being groomed by Marie to become the next director for future generations!

Our goal for this construction project is $20,000. We continue to build as the funds arrive and trust God to provide as He always has. We invite you to partner with us through prayer and financial contributions as you are able.

If, and only if, the Lord persuades you that our ask is proper and you are able, will you please help us, even just a little?

Annual Rent for NHCV


 
Our healthiest greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,

So much is surfacing across the globe. Many are operating out love, but sadly, many from fear. If only everyone knew the mercy and kindness of Jesus Christ and his promises. He alone is our comfort and confidence. Our earthly wants pale in comparison to the joy of knowing and loving our Jesus. Admittedly, this is not an easy message to convey to adults or children, but it is a necessary reminder as we see in Proverbs 30.

7Two things I asked of You, Do not refuse me before I die: 8Keep deception and lies far from me, Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is my portion, 9That I not be full and deny You and say, “Who is the Lord?” Or that I not be in want and steal, And profane the name of my God.

— Proverbs 30:7-9

How wise is our infinite God who knows exactly what we do and do not need.

11Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. 12I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. 13I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

— Philippians 4:11-13

Things in Liberia are always difficult, but good. Having endured the ravages of Ebola, this recent virus is far less scary.

We do not have the quality of health care that is available in the USA, but we manage. We do not have the strength of the economy as in the USA, but we manage. What we have, in our poverty, is something greater: no other option. We are drawn closer to Christ, and realize our need for him through the challenges that he alone permits in our lives. The resulting JOY is worth the price, yet I know we would not seek it if we had options. That is the human condition.

Our rent is due. It is annual. This year it is $4,500. Here is our caution:

3You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.

— James 4:3

Can you see that we are careful to measure our ask to be sure it is absolutely necessary?

We work hard to provide, not for our pleasures, but for our children.

We are concerned for their welfare as you are for yours. We must educate, feed, and protect these who are vulnerable among us. We care for 24 children. I wish it were 2400! Right now, we need shelter which requires rent.

If, and only if, the Lord persuades you that our ask is proper and you are able, will you please help us, even just a little?

Back to School Spring 2020

It’s back to school spring 2020 for the children of NHCV. This year we have 24 children in need of support for tuition.

Greetings and Gratitude from Myer and Marie!

It is incredible how the children are growing in every respect. Of course, they grow taller, eat more, and play harder, but they are so beautifully growing in the Lord!

Sometimes I think they have an advantage in Liberia when I observe the destructive effects of wealth and entertainment in the American culture. It is so hard for the children in America to be distanced from the technology that suffocates their activity. Cell phones, Netflix, video games are truly very appealing to the children in America.

I am not at all surprised. I am sure that if this was available in Liberia, the same would happen to the children there. It is very attractive to them and hard to resist.

I thank God that we are free from the temptation because we do not have access.

Instead, we sing to the Lord, read, study, memorize, and recite His Word. Oh, what a blessing it is to their young developing minds! In addition, they go to school and have vigorous curriculums that include the old fashioned reading, writing, and arithmetic.

Now is the time we pray for funding.

Tuition for our children is due and we would be so grateful for your help. We have 24 children in classes and the total per semester is close to $6000. It’s only $250 per child, but 24 children adds up quickly.

This on top of what we regularly provide for them in basic material needs like food, shelter, healthcare, transportation, and clothing. We rarely have surplus, but the Lord has been faithful to provide the essentials for these past 7 years. It is truly an honor to see how His hand has covered us.

Please consider New Hope Children’s Village in your giving.

We will be so grateful.

Also, if you know anyone that would be inclined to help us, would you be willing to make an introduction? It too would be greatly appreciated.

Always Thankful, forever serving,
Myer and Marie Torbor
