Blog Planning Update

March 29th, 2006

My apologies to all of the readers of this blog. I have been silent for a month to determine if this blog is going to be productive and meet the expectations that we had desired for its existance. Traffic on the blog has increased (over 5,000 unique visitors the first three months of 2006), and we are seeing that most of the posts and pages about the individual refugees are being read. Direct support and comments have not yet started to happen, but at least the story is being told. For all of your attention, we are thankful.
Therefore, starting next month I will be making major updates to the postings to report current news at Buduburam and the work being done there. Again I appeal to the readers to please comment on the posts and articles.

Final Appeal

February 7th, 2006

This blog has just begun its 12th month. We have been blessed with visitors from 4 continents and are being viewed by 75 different people each day. For this response, we are very honored and grateful.

However unless the viewers begin to post messages and / or comments we will have to consider changing the focus of how we approach this ministry.

This will be a difficult decision to make, as we had hoped and prayed that many would not only be passive readers, but become personally involved with our work.

I know that you are wondering what can I do? Well, login, open an account and begin to post comments for starters. So many of you respond by email, but that does not expose your thoughts , desires, wisdom and insight to all.

Please make comments to this post as a beginning. Tell me what to do to make this successful.

Pres. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf Inaugural Address

January 25th, 2006

I have added the text of the inaugural address of Pres. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf as she took the oath of office as the new President of Liberia on Monday, January 16, 2005 – Capitol Building, Capitol Hill, Monrovia, Liberia.

Read her words and understand that this message is bold and must be read by all, so that our prayers may go forth to God for the re-building of Liberia.

To all my refugee friends, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, please read her words and know that, I am praying with you.

May God grant you wisdom as you seek your future.

Appeal to Readers

December 21st, 2005

This post is to ask all of the various readers to consider becoming more involved. You visit, read any posts I have written, look at the different articles, posts on various refugee stories and then come back later to look for updates.

What I am asking is for all the readers to create or use their login accounts to begin posting comments. I am asking for involvement. I do not desire this blog to be just a news service, but rather a site of inter-action between individuals.

After you have become familiar with the concept of posting comments, reading comments and responding to your posted comments; I would like for you to consider becoming authors of posts that appear in the main page. This blog is not owned by me for my singular purpose but to all who visit and contribute.

Join in and help us move this mission to the next level.

7,000 Visitors

December 6th, 2005

This post is announce a milestone for this blog.

Since this blog has started, we have received 7,000 vistors from 4 continents! We have now over 50 unique visitors that have created accounts on the blog. We are beginning to see much new trafic. We just received the 100,000th hit on the site. Around 58 different people visit the site each day and view approximately 8 pages each visit. This is great news! Please pray that God continues to bless this work and helps spread the news that we publish.

It is my desire as the host to ask visitors to begin to post their comments to the articles and become more active, not just readers. What you say will help us guide our efforts and also is a strength to the refugees that we support, to see others involved in their struggles is a great comfort.

Pray for our continued success.
