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.

Prayer Requests

Please consider prayer for Marie Torbor. She is struggling greatly with very high blood pressure, typhoid fever, and a lump in her breast.

The doctors are doing what they can with what they have, but they have recommended additional treatment elsewhere. We are working to get her a travel Visa to come to the US for medical attention.

Shipping our container

In addition, please continue to pray for NHCV to receive the letter of exemption that would allow us to ship the container of supplies that we are sitting on.

Yes, we have actually made some progress, but it is very much like pushing rope. They have asked for an inventory of what we would ship and we are requesting more information on how detailed the list needs to be. The holdup is that in the past, people have taken wrongful advantage of the exemption and so they put a complete halt on the privilege. We are requesting a waiver and it looks like we may get it.

Please Pray for Marie

19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”
20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”

Matthew 17:19-21

Would you consider joining us in prayer and fasting for Marie Torbor?

Recently, she has been greatly stressed, overworked, and exhausted. Marie suffers with very high blood pressure and she gets very sick and unable to care for herself, much less the children.

Right now she is deeply in need of your prayers for recovery, strength, courage, and health. These are things that come from heaven, not earth, and we know our God is faithful and able to do more than we dare ask. Please, let us dare to ask.

Trusting in HIS strength,
Myer Torbor

Kaley’s Appeal & Challenge

Kaley’s Challenge — this appeal and challenge went out in the hope of raising 1,000 cans of food for this mission — a very, very impressive appeal for a 17 year old girl!

These beautiful faces belong to the children of New Hope Children’s Village in Liberia.

Over the past few years my church and our wonderful congregation has raised money, food, clothes, etc. to send to them though different ministries like VBS or missionary trips. However, having become incredibly attached to them myself I feel led to do something for them on my own. Having already written letters to all the kids and sent bracelets I still feel the need to do more!

So I am organizing a canned food drive to raise 1000 cans before the next shipment which will be in approximately one year from now. I’m asking everyone I know; family, friends, neighbors, teammates, church family, etc to help me meet this goal! If you know anyone else who would be interested in helping feel free to pass on this information! I would greatly appreciate it!

I have already started taking donations and I will be taking donations at any time throughout the course of the next year! You can bring the cans to me at any time you see me! You can also donate some now and some later in the year! Whatever you are able to give, no matter how big or small it will be amazing! Canned foods are the most needed at the moment due to expiration dates. Please give cans with an expiration date of close to two years or longer if possible! The shipping process for third world countries takes much longer so it’s important we make sure the food will last!

Also because the shipping is very expensive, it will take time to raise the money to cover that cost. Hence the year until we can ship! Please pray that we will be able to raise this food! These kids are very important to me and their situation weighs heavy on my heart! I am looking forward to being able to do something for these kids and I really pray that you will be a part of it!

Please let me know if you have any questions!

For those of you at church I will have a drop off bin in my dads classroom for you to leave the cans in! I will send out reminders and keep you updated on the progress of meeting this goal!

Thank you very much! God bless you!

We are overwhelmed by the great abundance that God has provided! Much more than we had anticipated (oh, we of little faith!). We had originally intended to send a 20’ container, but we are now requiring a 40’ container! Glory to God!

In addition to the already accumulated supplies, we recently were offered an entire curriculum of mathematics books and lesson plans. This is shown in the photograph. It is brand new, still in the boxes, and perfect for the needs in Liberia. All together it is about 125 boxes of blessings.

We were additionally excited by the challenge by Kaley Pitts from Providence Church to collect 1000 cans of food to ship to the children! At the time, we had no room left to ship the food, but now we have enough room to ship 5000 cans!! If you would like to help Kaley meet her challenge, let us know and we will have her contact you.

Please consider helping us with the additional cost of shipping.

We had enough to ship the small container, but this is more than we planned.

We have a matching grant offered for up to $1,000, so every dollar you give will be matched by a generous grantor!!!

This is only for the shipping, unless we exceed the amount needed, and then the overage will go to purchasing food and other supplies to ship.

The total shipment cost will be approximately $5,500 and we only have $4,200, so there it is, a shortage.

Remember, only a small portion of this shipment will actually go to the orphanage. Marie Torbor will distribute most of the shipment to other hurting members of the community, as well as to many of the schools in the area.

This goes a long way toward spreading the gospel by meeting the needs of a troubled nation.

If you can help, please do.
Thank you.

Walking by faith,
New Hope Children’s Village
