Several years ago, our Illinois Great Rivers Conference (IGRC) adopted the Liberia Annual Conference as its partner conference.
Liberia is still slowly rebuilding after 20 years of civil war which ended in October, 2003. Since that time, the nation has been beset by poverty and disease and a host of other problems.
Liberia Ministries are our September Mission of the Month. Orion UMC has a covenant relationship with Rev. Priscilla Jaiah, a missionary serving at the Ganta Mission.
Just as our conference has partnered with the Liberia Annual Conference, so our Spoon River District has adopted two districts in Liberia: the Cape Palmas District and the Garaway District.
Your support of Liberian ministries—above and beyond your regular support of our church—will help us to reach out in love and compassion to the people of Liberia.
