Missionary Robbed in Liberia


Originally posted on thinkGOSPEL blog:

Our missionary compound in Liberia has been robbed. Both our missionaries (Miss Joanne Greer and Rev. Dave DiCanio) are safe, although Rev. DiCanio is shaken up as he faced the robbers and the very real threat of death. Dave has been doing a great work heading up the building project. The perimeter wall and the houses are still being built and there are security measures already in place. However much more needs to be done and we need more money to get the project completed. Here is a report (PDF) from the Mission Board of the Church (Free Presbyterian Church of North America). Pray for Dave and Joanne in the coming days that the Lord would give them grace, peace of mind and a sense of His securing and comforting presence.
