There’s a spiritual revolution underway in Liberia.
Helen Williams of World Missionary Press cannot name WMP’s partner for security reasons. But she says this group is bringing the Good News of Christ to people groups who’ve never heard. “Their goal is to go where the Gospel is not already present,” Williams says, describing the partner.
“They’ve established bases in four of the six unreached tribes in Liberia. This year, they expect to have the last two, so they would [have] teams within every unreached tribe of Liberia.”
As described here, Christian literature is difficult to obtain in Liberia. World Missionary Press provides French New Testaments so the partner can introduce people to Christ. Scripture comes in handy for discipleship, too.
“The primary idea is to get the Word there and to free these people from the bondage they’re in,” Williams explains.
Setting captives free
Partners tell WMP oppression is common in unreached villages. “These are areas where there is a strong demonic presence. The villages are run by spiritual leaders that are adherents of Satan’s control,” Williams says.
According to local believers, one city was ‘unreachable.’ “[Our partners] were told, ‘don’t bother to go there. It would be impossible to start a church there,’” Williams says. Outreach took a few years to begin, but “today they have assisted in starting churches in that area, and [are] already building church buildings.”
There’s no spiritual stronghold God cannot overcome.
Another unreached village was “probably the most powerful stronghold of Satan in Liberia,” Williams recalls from the partner’s latest update. “He said, ‘As I was going from house to house, three men came up and stayed behind me like shadows all the time I was there’.”
