Can’t Shake Liberia

0741Not that I want to…but I can’t get Liberia and the Buegar family out of my mind. I’ve had powerful experiences before and they generally tend to fade, but in the midst of an outrageously busy ministry season, my thoughts keep coming back to our African Experience.

And we will share that experience in our services this Sunday (both campuses) and in a fun informal presentation Sunday afternoon at 3:00pm (@ west campus).

Yesterday, Denise Tribble (pictured here with Jenny, and the Buegars…Bea, Linnelle and Dwayne) and I had a conference call with the Board of LEM (Liberian Evangelistic Mission).  It was good to talk with this team.  I know most of them have been invested in Liberia and the Buegar’s ministry for longer than I have known Danny.  We talked about the challenges we experienced, the faithfulness of the Buegar family, how new opportunities to make trips there are available more than ever before.  I can’t wait to see where it goes.

I know this much…Suncrest is planning a trip there in early 2010 to keep bringing help to the people of Liberia.  We will talk about it a bit this Sunday.  I came across a quote working on my message Sunday that has resonated with how I feel about the work in Liberia.  Maybe it will help you to take the next step in considering a trip like this:

  1. Greg, I love that comment you posted by Edmond Burke…it is so true!
    I remember something that my late husband always kept telling all three of our sons as as they were on the journey to manhood. He would say ” ‘Can’t’ never did anything’ …as long as you give it your all, do your best then you did not fail.” I know that you and everyone who journeyed to Liberia brought joy & hope to everyone you met along the way!
