What We Do

Lifegate’s goal is to educate the people of Sierra Leone concerning God’s Stories and Life Skills.

We tell the stories from the Scriptures so that the people may know the Lord.  We teach the people the life skills they need in order to provide for themselves and to enable them to tell and teach God’s Stories to others.

In our schools, we are telling the stories to the children and teaching them life skills.

In our orphanage, we are telling the stories to the youth and teaching them life skills.

In our churches, we are telling the stories to the people and teaching them life skills.

On the radio, we are telling stories from the Bible and sharing the Gospel.

In our Trade School, we are telling stories from the Bible to adults and teaching life skills.

In the end, it's pretty simple: we want to teach Africans life skills, and we want Africans to tell God's stories to other Africans, in their mother tongue.
