VCP – Liberia – Sad News

Awhile back, we requested prayer for Pastor Philemon who is a national pastor working in the country of Liberia. He works through AFBM (African Fundamental Baptist Missions) and VCP (Village Church Planters).

The pastor who heads up VCP is Sam Quapourlee. A few months back we requested prayer for his son, Vanni, who was involved in a motorcycle accident. I received word from Pastor Sam that his son passed away from complications and internal bleeding at 7:30pm (Liberia time) on December 19, 2009.

Vanni, who worked with his father in one of the churches, was 27. He had a wife and two little children (ages 4 & 6). Please pray that the Lord would give this family strength at this very difficult time, and that the Lord would be exalted and glorified in their lives. Vanni had placed his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, so the family is comforted knowing they will see him once again when they cross the border from life into eternity.

Ps. 116:15, “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.”

  1. I will be praying for Pastor Sam and his family. I am deeply sorry for their loss and will pray for their comfort.

  2. It is an important time to keep the wife and children in prayer as they are devastated right now!

  3. Let’s not forget to always pray for one another, whether it be for comfort in the death of a loved one, or for strength, growth, etc. Prayer is so essential, especially praying for others. Let’s also remember to always pray for our brothers and sisters who suffer persecution in parts of the world where the name of Christ is not welcome at all.

  4. Amen -
