We want to thank all of you for your support of our Walker and Ida Wedding Video. In the end we had 58 sponsors who donated a total of $3,500 to the Liberian Widows Initiative to help orphans and children in Liberia. Walker and Ida are now in Liberia and have been thrilled by all of your support. Below are a message and some pictures they would like to share with you in appreciation of your generosity.

To Our Sponsors:
Thank you so much for your generosity! It means so much to us to have
friends like you who are willing to partner with us in this work.
Through your donations we were able to raise $3500 for the Liberian
Widows Initiative!

We’ve been in Liberia for just over a month, and by God’s grace your
support is already making a meaningful difference in the Paynesville
Joe Bar Community (the primary focus area of our work). Last week we
approved 37 market women and their families to receive small loans to
help grow their businesses (see the attached picture of our “loan
orientation meeting” today, during which we congratulated the loan
recipients and reviewed the details of the microfinance program).
Through your support we were also able to purchase an electricity
generator to provide lights to the Joe Bar Community Church in the
evenings (the generator cost $175, which the community could not
afford beforehand). We had our first adult literacy class in the
church this evening and ten women showed up!
Again thanks so much for your partnership and support which will
surely transform dozens of lives this year!
