There are three ways for you to get involved in the ministry in Liberia.
First, you can pray. Pray for strength and health for the missionaries and pastors here in Liberia who are preaching the Word of God without compromise and standing for the truth. Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:12—“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” And in verses 18-20 he says we should be “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, ... that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” (For more specific requests, click here.)
Second, you can give. We are now at the 92% level in our support, so we are praying for additional partners to pick up the difference. Also, our work with the pastors and churches constantly puts us in touch with a multitude of needs—our Bible schools and clinic, church buildings, special ministry opportunities, physical needs, etc. and it is a blessing to them (and us) if we can help with those things.
To give, click here and then use the first drop-down menu to choose “3. Missionary Support” In the second drop-down menu choose “Sheppard, Mark Richard.” Enter the amount you wish to give. Push “add.” After filling out your name and address, choose the frequency you wish to give and the type of payment, (credit card or eCheck). You may also mail gifts to the address below. Mark the gift “for the ministry of Mark Sheppard.”
Finally, you can personally participate in the harvest. Click here to be taken to BMM’s “opportunities” webpage to find out more information on mission trips and becoming a short term or career missionary.
