Building Churches, Building Lives

Don Matchett

The World Missions Offering makes it possible to build churches in countries like Ivory Coast. Ivorian church members are mostly farmers with few resources. They do not always have the financial means nor the construction capabilities to complete a church building. IM and the World Missions offering provide much-needed assistance. Our agreement? If they construct the walls, IM will provide financial assistance for the roof.

The World Missions Offering helps with humanitarian aid in a variety of ways, both directly and indirectly.

One area is IM’s partnership with BERACA. A Free Will Baptist non-profit in Ivory Coast, Africa, BERACA maintains the Doropo Hospital. They also provide AIDS prevention, support for children with HIV, programs for at-risk children, adult literacy classes, classrooms in villages with no school, and the list goes on and on.

Currently, IM, The Hanna Project, and BERACA are partnering to renovate the Doropo Hospital and construct a new patient ward.
