The leadership of Restoration of Educational Advancement Program (REAP) in collaboration with Pointman Leadership Institute (PLI), and Freedom In Christ Ministry (FICM) has planned a series of engagements to celebrate LIFE and God’s Love for Liberia and Liberians, the organizers have said.
These engagements, according to the organizers’ statement, are expected to begin on Saturday, November 17, with a Liberian Prayer Breakfast to be followed by PLI Seminars on Monday and Tuesday, November 19 and 20, and culminating in a FICM seminar on Wednesday, November 21.
According to organizers, Liberia was established upon a foundation of noble values and principles, and it is now seems necessary to rekindle those noble values and principles and revisit the foundation upon which the nation was established.
The prayer breakfast engagement, organizers noted in a brochure, will give an opportunity for Liberia and friends who love Liberia to join the leadership of the country to reason together and party for the nation.
It is anticipated that the Liberia National Prayer Breakfast will become an annual or bi-annual event. These events coincides with the 75th birthday of REAP’s Co-founder, Mrs. Christine Tolbert Norman (November 18).
The event is expected to bring over 212 participants together, who will engage in activities for two days, while follow shipping in a non-political setting, listening to teachings, testimonies and others. To foster friendship among participants based on unconditional love for country and each other.
Foreign guests, it is anticipated, will worship in 12 churches in Gbarnga, Buchanan, Harbel, Bentol and others a documentary from the engagement will be made for history sharing.
