THE WAITING IS OVER! The motorbike is in possession of our beloved Pa Foday!

We did it!

Paying for the motorbike

Our work in Kabala has just taken another step towards more effective ministering to those in need.
The support of NHA has enabled us to purchase the motorbike, necessary for this work.

Not only will the bike enable Pa Foday to make the home visits, checking in on the students and their families throughout our school district, but it will save many steps for Pa Foday as he travels miles to work the farm which provides the food for the village.

It will also save the wear and tear on Pa Foday as he makes the journeys to bring in supplies to other area villages that NHA cares for and supports (such as Kamasorrie).
We at NHA have been hoping to purchase this bike for Pa Foday and the work of NHA for a long time, many, many years. It is a dream to finally be able to accomplish this goal.

Because several individuals and families are now giving regular monthly donations we are able to continue our monthly obligations to the people in Sierra Leone (purchasing of rice for families, salaries of teachers of NHA School & staff, educational fees for students in college in Freetown and other Freetown Educational Facilities, doctor fees for the ill, etc. etc.) and also purchase this bike. Can you imagine what NHA could do for the poor if we had more people giving monthly?
This is the reason the monthly donations are so important. If you have not committed to give regularly on a monthly basis, please consider doing so. It allows people in the communities of Sierra Leone that we serve to not only exist, but thrive. Remember, it is God, through your generosity that lives are changed for the better.

Our work now is to finish paying off the compound. Not an easy task, but one vital to the continuance of our work. Please invite everyone you know to be a part of this great work. Share the word, spread the love.

now, lets get the compound...

NHA wants to thank the Miller Family of Kent, Washington for their generosity in providing this motorbike.
