Several residents of Klay town in Klay District Bomi County over the weekend received several assorted food items and medical supplies from the New Water in the Desert Assembly Church Mobile Mission team.
The New Water in the Desert Assembly is an apostolic Pentecostal church headquartered in Brewerville, Montserrado County. Speaking with Capitol Times, George Cooper, Coordinator of the church’s mobile mission, said the exercise is part of the church own way of reaching out to Liberians in outlier parts of the country, apart from spreading the gospel and ensuring that everyone hears the good news of Christ. According to Cooper, the outreach has successfully fed over 75 underprivileged residents of the area as well as treated people living with different kinds of diseases and illnesses. He put the estimated cost of the exercise at around LD$40,000. For his part, the Dean Elder of Saye Town Klay Wall, Sekou Freeman, said the issue of medication is a major challenge for the citizenry, as many residents struggle daily to take sick people and pregnant women over night to Bomi hospital which sometimes results to death while en route. He lauded Bishop Kortu Brown and the New Water in the Desert Assembly for the far-sightedness in reaching out to the people of Bomi. He then called on well meaning Liberians to follow the example of the church.
