2014 is coming to a close! What a year it has been!

Earlier this year Love Lights the Way restructured the board of directors, started the Advisory Panel (AP) and set a 2014 fund raising goal of $60,000 to go towards our school, church and cassava farm construction with the intent to travel to our campus, Lighthouse Village, in December. Our trip was postponed due to the unfortunate Ebola virus situation, but our passion never ceased.

During the Ebola crisis, many of Liberians are having trouble getting money and food, due to the stalled economy surrounding the Ebola control efforts. In November, Love Lights the Way purchased $2,500 of food and had it distributed in the Fendell community surrounding Lighthouse Village. We are very happy to have helped our community in this important way.

So far we have raised $47,000 towards our $60,000 goal for 2014. We held a very successful concert and auction in September with which we came away with $3,591. We are excited to make this concert and auction an annual event and we hope to see you there next fall! Other funds have been coming from various church congregations, online followers and our AP members who donate 50$ every month. We had 20 AP members this year and had our first annual AP dinner in November to thank those donors. Learn more at LLTW.org/AP.

Despite our trip being postponed, we strongly desire to reach this goal by the end of this year, as Lighthouse Village cannot be realized without such contributions. We estimate $60,000 for the expenses involved with building all of the blocks and laying the foundation for the school/church, planting 2 acres of cassava and converting the warehouse into a temporary church meeting place. We expect the school and church to cost a total of $300,000, so it is important that we carry on with fundraising. The day the school is completed will be a day of celebration for sure! We hope that day is soon! It can be with your help. 

In 2014, our website and facebook got a major boost, which helps us communicate our mission to more people with more efficiency.
