United States-based singing groups, Messiah’s Men and Durant, are intensifying preparations to shortly host a ‘free medical outreach’ and impressive musical concerts in the country, a dispatch from the US has said.
The groups are Christian-oriented and their planned activities are meant to boost the virtuous teaching of Jesus on humanity and provide inspiration for thousands of Liberian Christians through melodies.
Liberian male chorus groups, the Messiah’s Men Ministries and Durant (another Gospel acapella group), through the Salient Project has planned a medical outreach to be launched in March to benefit thousands.
The all Liberian male acapella gospel groups are planning the outreach in collaboration with Dr. Stephanie Harding, a United States board certified general dentist.
The mission to Liberia will provide free preventive services, including blood pressure and diabetes screening as well as dental services to children and adults across selected cities in the country.
The mission will also provide free dental hygiene supplies, including dental floss, toothbrushes, toothpastes and mouthwash to program participants.
The outreach will be held in Monrovia at the SDA Cooper Clinic, Phebe Hospital in Gbarnga, Bong County, and at the Ganta United Methodist Hospital in Nimba County.
The Messiah’s Men and Durant will then climax their activities with gospel concerts to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to Liberians in selected cities, spanning from March 18 through March 31.
According to the dispatch, during the activities, a live concert will be held on Saturday, March 24 at the Paynesville SDA Church, near the ELWA Junction, to be climaxed in a grand style on Sunday, March 25 at the Monrovia Christian Fellowship Church on 9th Street, Sinkor – each running from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Under the theme, “We Are One,” the concerts will feature some local mass choirs and other gospel artists, among them the Monrovia Community and the SDA Mass Choirs.
The ministries were established in the United States by Liberian immigrants who were previously singing in various musical groups as refugees in Nigeria, Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire. They starred in groups such as the Exodus, Trumpet, Cherubim and the Revelators, using music as a means to survive and to spread the good news of Jesus Christ.
Upon migrating to the US, they formed the Messiah’s Men Ministries to administer the Good News through music. The group has engaged in some charity works in Liberia and has engaged in fundraising to support humanitarian works.
The Salient Project is a registered non-profit organization founded in 2012.
