The African Christian Fellowship International-Liberia School System (ACFI) over the weekend held a Christmas party for students attending institutions run by the entity.
More than 200 students, faculty and staff of the school system attended the program.
Dr. T. Edward Koffi, founder and general overseer of ACFI, said the program was intended to bring together everyone affiliated with the denomination to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Every year the organization presents gifts to faculty and staff of the school system for their dedication and sacrifices made over the year, up to the festive season.
At the Daniel Hoover Children’s Village Boarding Mission in Dixville, Dr. Koffi expressed gratitude to the faculty for the “invaluable service” they have rendered to the church and humanity over the last year.
Koffi said knowledge is priceless, and therefore, it is important and prudent that he appreciates those imparting knowledge to the students.
“It will not be the first and the last, but every year we express gratitude to everyone for their various services rendered to us and the institution,” Dr. Koffi said.
One of the recipients, Isaac Dardoe, who is also the principal of the Daniel Hoover Children Village Boarding School, thanked Dr. Koffi for recognizing their services to the institution over the years.
Dardoe described ACFI-Liberia as one of the institutions that is contributing immensely to the growth and development of the country’s education sector.
The ACFI-Liberia School System currently runs five learning institutions, including the three high schools: the Daniel Hoover Children Village Boarding Mission and the Oscar and Violet Deaf Mission Schools in Karbah, Bardnersville, outside Monrovia.
ACFI was established in 1986 to primarily reach Liberia’s rural residents, Africa and humanity with the gospel, with targeted areas including isolated rural villages and towns as well as suspected crime infested urban slums in major cities and hard to reach groups.
The ACFI also serves medical needs in communities, engages in agricultural development and relief ministry; it also makes disciples by spreading the gospel and strengthening the body of Christ through Christian college programs.
