The Sierra Leone Word Made Flesh community seeks to love, serve, and accompany street youth and destitute families in Freetown. Our aspiration is that we all be transformed and freed as we are obedient to Jesus’ love and challenge. Through offering teenagers relationships built on mutual vulnerability and trust, along with leadership training, skills, and traditional education, we endeavor to bring God’s light, hope, wisdom, and peace to West Africa. Further, through hospitality and hosting servant teams, WMF Freetown hopes to be a reconciling bridge between the affluent Church in the West and God’s beloved poor in Sierra Leone.
