A United States-based Greater Light Pentecostal International Church has donated rice to several churches and individuals in Liberia.
A representative of the Church in Liberia, Rev. James Cooper of the Association of Evangelicals of Liberia (AEL), said the donation is intended to identify with its partners during this health crisis.
The beneficiaries include Maranatha Apostolic Pentecostal Church, House of Prayer Rescue Ministries, Triumphant Miracle Assembly, and Don Stewart Christ Pentecostal Church, amongst others.
Rev. Cooper said the donation is also intended to bridge the food gap as Liberia goes under a state of emergency.
The clergyman said despite the prevailing situation of COVID-19 in America, especially New York City where the church is situated, the church thought it wise to remember partners in Liberia.
Rev. Cooper indicated that the Greater Light Pentecostal Church in the United States in 2014 during the Ebola crisis also provided food items for its partner churches.
He further disclosed that the Church in the United States will continue to support its partners.
For their part, beneficiaries of the rice donation thanked Greater Light Pentecostal International Church and Rev. Dr. G. Laurenzo Stevens for the gesture.
