Aug. 14, 2017 mudslides. Worse, approximately 10 percent of the deceased were A.R.E. members.
Keeping them in your daily prayers and meditations of course helps.
But this is one of those times when more is needed.
If you have just a little more to give to our Sierra Leone family in great need, every little bit helps.
Thank you for your love and generosity.

Here, a letter from A.R.E. Sierra Leone President Mohamed Kamara.
-----Kamara’s letter --------
Firstly, I would like to thank you all for the prayers and encouraging messages sent to me. However,words can not explain the gravity of the calamity that took place in my country until you see with your naked eyes.
Secondly, to date the rescue teams are digging dead bodies from the ground while thousands are at the national stadium patiently waiting for the government to provide shelter for them. Significantly, I am kindly requesting to Mr. Kevin, his staff and the rest of the international members to help me and my people.
Thirdly, the number of A.R.E.members who died is unknown at the moment and I personally lost 32 family members and some are missing. Finally, the streets are deserted while people are at the stadium and others are in their houses crying for their love ones.
I was very busy going around with the rescue teams looking for the bodies of my family members and friends. I once more thank you all for the solid efforts and love shown to me at the traumatic situation.
