Our Pastors are our eyes and caring hands within the local communities.
It is noteworthy that life in Kibera has always been difficult, however, the historically bad situation has become even worse due to the recent drought and sky-high inflation. Food and energy costs have increased by ~50% in the last year, dramatically increasing the risk of starvation and exploitation of vulnerable children.
Pastor Emmanuel Gyamfi and his wife Ruth founded the Great Commission Victory Ministries (GCVM) more than 20 years ago and have dedicated their lives to helping the most disadvantaged people in Liberia.
They oversee the New Community Clinic, the Victory Life Academy, and most recently the construction of the new Girls College. GCVM Programs include food distribution, primary & secondary education, medical supplies and services, water wells, and mosquito net distribution. During the last 20 years, their programs have helped many thousands of desperately poor children and their families.
ICF is so fortunate to work with Pastor Sila, Pastor Gyamfi, and all our other pastors who have dedicated their lives to helping those in need.
Girl’s College Update
The construction of the Girl’s college in Monrovia Liberia is progressing according to schedule. Pastor Gyamfi, who is managing this project, shared the following update:
“It has been a journey of hope, faith, and grace. Finally, phase two of the Liberia Girl’s College was completed on August 19, 2022. We would like to thank God almighty and the International Children Funds (ICF), for their continuous support. The project team, donors, and everyone that is working so hard to make this dream a reality … thank you.”
Together We Make A World of Difference
Regular giving helps us support our efforts to increase agricultural projects and countless other programs promoting sustainable improvements in the lives of desperately poor children and their families. We call these donors Hope Ambassadors because they help ICF to provide hope to those who truly face life and death needs in Africa and India.
Every gift, no matter how large or small, is an answer to our prayers and an investment in the life of a child. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your continued prayers and financial support.
Thank you and God Bless, Dr. David Bruenning Founder/Int’l Director
See children fed, educated, and empowered.
Become a Hope Ambassador
Paul states in 2 Corinthians 5:20 that “we are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us…”
It can be easy to skim past this verse, but the historical context of an “ambassador” brings a wealth of meaning. Such ambassadors or delegates, whether Jewish or Greco-Roman, came with the authority of the sender, in his place, to secure his interests. The reality is, God is making his appeal through us, and wants to secure His very own interests.
