& Lilian Victoria
Ministry Type: Church
Joined FMIN: October 2009
Biography: Franklin began Living Word Ministries in 1997 after his training as a missionary in Nigeria. The ministry's mission statement is to glorify God by fulfilling the great commission, to evangelize the lost and to edify the Body of Christ for effective ministry. Franklin tells us that in Freetown, which is the capital, Christians have arisen to take the town for the Lord. Most of the citizens are receptive and the gospel is taking deep root.
The church's Children Outreach Ministry brings orphans in from the street into their orphanage to give them spiritual and physical parenting. They have a children's club to show them the love Jesus has for them. They have an active youth department which holds youth evangelism, weekly youth fellowship and retreats each month along with seminars and conferences.
Franklin tells us that many youth live on the street after the war and were fighters or rebels. The church's focus is to bring these youth to the Lord, engage them in skill training, and teach them how to reach their potential. They also focus on peace building and community development and have a ministry to the widows and aged.
Strengths: Franklin and Lilian Victoria are gifted in teaching, preaching counseling and administration and enjoy singing and drama. Their passion is to see people happily serving God.
