NEXT INternship

Sierra Leone Village

One of the purposes of the church is to be "the hands and feet of Christ." In other words, we believe we are called to reach out to people with the love of Christ. This means meeting people's physical needs as well as sharing the Gospel of Jesus. Jesus sought to do both, so we follow His example. Whether in our community, country, or all around the world, we seek to share the love of Jesus through: international missions, national missions, local missions, and supporting missionaries.

On the international level, we participated in a 3-year project in Sierra Leone, called the Sierra Leone Village Partnership Project. This project impacted Mabum Station, a village in Sierra Leone, by:

Year 1: Planting a pineapple farm

Year 2: Digging a fresh water well

Year 3: Building a church!


We extended this project by an additional year! During the project, a nearby village of Makump Kaepath came alongside and provided invaluable labor for the project. Since the two villages have both benefitted from the work to-date, the only thing missing for the second village was a fresh water well of their own. 

At a distance of almost a mile apart, it has been an incredibly long haul for Makump Kaepath to make for the procurement of fresh water, which is literally life to the people of this area.

The bottom line is this: with one additional year of partnership between our district and these two villages, both villages will have a farm, church and fresh-water wells from which to benefit. Details can be found in the video on this page.

building hope in haiti

We have a $50,000 match – dollar for dollar from an individual toward the work in increasing the capacity of the Wesleyan  hospital on the Island of LaGonave – We are working with a group that is helping us with a 5 year strategic plan – so this is part of the first phase.   We were so pleased that the hospital and the Wesleyan Church of Haiti were the leaders in the recovery efforts of the earthquake.   Our Haitian doctors and nurses were the first people into the affected area – in less than 24 hrs. after the earthquake struck.    This is the church at work over the long haul.      It was interesting that a New York Times Reporter was there to report on the earthquake and her ultimate assessment was “The Church is the safety net for the people of Haiti.   It is here they educate their children, it is here they receive medical care, it is here they find community.  The Church is the backbone of Haiti.” I thought these were amazing words from a secular reporter – God’s church is never extinguished.


Below are some of the items the match would provide: 

  • Provide space and equipment for 1 maternity bed unit …..$1000 – we need 18 of these
  • Help 1 baby birth and delivery/post- natal care includes mom as well……$1500
  • Build, furnish and supply equipment  one exam room ……$2800
  • Provide 1 day’s worth of Oxygen for the Hospital ……..$50 a day
  • Help one patient access medical care at LaGonave Hospital …..$412 per patient
  • Build and Furnish and supply Equipment for an ER patient room ……$24,000
  • Build Furnish and supply for one Isolation room unit……………….$24,000
