The Next Steps
"The Promised Land
In 2023 Maranatha Christian Outreach Ministries acquired a piece onf land in Kailahun. We saw this as the next step in growing and developing the ministry in West Africa.
The overarching aim of this project is to make Maranatha Christian Outreach Ministries self-sustainable, so that disciples will continue to be made for many years to come (without reliance on international donors)
Over 20 years ago when Lorraine first visited Africa the Lord gave her a vision. She saw the development of a piece of land to further the glory of God. The land was developed with farming, livestock, and workshops.
During a recent visit to Sierra Leone, Lorraine was really moved by the Holy Spirit and was reminded of the vision, and really felt that this is a vision for now.
We see the next step for the ministry to be the fulfilment of this vision. We have launched a 5-year project called "The Promised Land Development Project."
Following the recent acquisition of a piece of land in Kailahun, the plan is to develop the land, build a Christian Training Centre and develop a Missionary Training Program. This will create a hub for discipleship training in the area where we operate, as well as utilising the land to create and launch a number of micro-enterprises such as farming, soap making, bee-keeping and purified water sales. The overarching aim of this project is to make Maranatha Christian Outreach Ministries self-sustainable, so that disciples will continue to be made for many years to come, without reliance on international donors.
