What if the folks and farmers here in Ohio were to recondition an old piece of equipment out in the shop that they would never use again knowing what it would mean to a farm family ½ way around the world in Liberia? What if those pieces of unused farming equipment were gathered, along with a tractor, seeds, and tools, until there was a whole shipping container full? And, what if they rode for free across the ocean in the ships of Firestone Natural Rubber Company returning empty for another load of raw rubber from Liberia that would eventually become made into tires. What if Henrietta UMC a small rural church in Firelands District happened to partner with Werner UMC a small inner-city church in North Coast District to lead East Ohio Conference in Ohio into partnering with the St. John’s River District in Liberia? What if it all changed the lives of a whole community of folks coming out of a 14 year long devastating civil war who were holding you before God every day in thanksgiving as the greatest blessing in their lives?
What if . . . .
God is calling you?
