Big crowds, baptisms reported in Sierra Leone, Liberia

Hundreds of students at a school in Bo, Sierra Leone, crowd around a group of visiting church members to find out more about the World Bible School Bible correspondence course. Isaac K. Daye, a minister in nearby Gambia, and Ron Pottberg, of Cedar Park, Texas-based World Bible School, enrolled more than 2,000 students in the program during their two-day visit to Bo. The local church agreed to assist in collecting the lessons and to follow up with interested students. Daye and Pottberg joined Ken Bolden, director of World Radio Gospel Broadcasts, West Monroe, La., for the second postwar gospel campaign in Monrovia, Liberia. Bolden met with World Radio teams that had been on the air for two decades, even during Liberia’s long civil war. “We had 12 baptisms in the Atlantic Ocean on the beach near the U.S. embassy — the only safe haven in the city just a few years before,” Bolden said. He received requests for additional radio programs in Liberia’s interior.
