Elect Saints Evangelical Lutheran Church continually reaches out to those in Africa, specifically Liberia and Ghana to assist both the people in need and the churches which have been formed through Elect Saints.
Currently there are nine churches in Liberia and one in Ghana that Elect Saints continues to support. Worship books, worship supplies and other needed items are provided through the efforts of Elect Saints to the churches in Africa. These items provide both needs for the people along with the needs for the churches that have formed.
Once a year usually in November, a container is secured to fill with donations of every kind including clothing, non-perishable canned meats, bottled water, etc. Once filled this container is sent to Liberia where waiting hands and staff receive and distribute to the churches and their people.
Along with the needs of the people other items that are sent to help the churches in their daily efforts to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in their surrounding areas, are books, paraments, choir robes, acolyte robes, etc and even larger items have been sent, such as altars and lecterns, to help these churches. Since the cost of sending this container is in the thousands, monetary donations are continually being requested.
If you can help in any way by either donating items for the container or by making a monetary donation or both:

Additionally trips are made frequently to Africa to bring hope and help to those in need. Pastor Gbardoe and those who join her visit all the churches, preaching and reaching out to the people. Encouragement and hope is also brought to those who work in the churches spreading the “good news” of Jesus Christ and to those who maintain the orphanage and its children.
