St. Paul’s United Methodist Church has had a long-standing relationship with John Dean’s Town in Liberia Africa. As our friends in this remote area struggle to recover from the devastation of a 17 year civil war we are working with them to develop a healthy , vibrant community that can provide hope for their children’s future. The love and generosity of our community has partnered with our Liberian friends to construct a school, a medical center, and water well. These are the only services of these kinds for many miles. Infant and child mortality rates have dropped dramatically due to the clean water provided by the well.
