Amanda Samrani Wings of Healing - South Sudan/Uganda
Amanda Samrani, a registered nurse and a believer since 2003, working alongside the South Sudanese and Ugandans to restore lives using Christ and Biblical principles as our guide. Some of the areas we help with teaching and living by example are Community Health Evangelism (CHE) lessons in areas of community development, health lessons, agricultural concepts and healthy living principles. We love to work with children in the area of CHE lessons, discipleship, sports programs and some school scholarships. They hold the future in their hands. Join us to bring the Gospel of Peace and healthy living principles to those in need.

Project Liberia, under the leadership of missionary-professor Shonnie Wellspring, develops leaders for sharing the gospel, planting and building strong churches. The Project Liberia team spends much time in villages across Liberia building relationships, making disciples, baptizing, developing leaders and growing healthy churches. Convicted that the spread of the gospel will happen faster if leaders reproduce leaders (2 Timothy 2:2), Project Liberia is currently developing a college in Liberia to prepare called individuals for kingdom impact.
