Our History

Early Beginnings

Liberia is a country founded in 1847 by African slaves who were relocated from America back to Africa. The indigenous tribal people living there experienced over 125 years of oppression as they did not have access to the same privileges of free education and political involvement in their country.

Subsequently, there were many years of unrest and rebellion. In 1989, a 15 year civil war broke out and 250,000 Liberian’s lost their lives during political rivalry and ethnic cleansing. In the midst of this war, Reverend William Boduo pleaded with the Lord.

“What can be done for my people?” The Lord replied,

“Rescue them for Me.”

Evangelical Soul Rescue Mission

With that, the vision was born for the Evangelical Soul Rescue Mission of Africa.

Now that stability has returned to Liberia, Reverend Boduo is working with a team in the U.S. along with Liberian partners in his home town of rural Zwedru, Liberia, on development projects through education

Building of New Hope Christian Academy

In March 2011, Rev. Fred Boduo, our project construction manager, traveled to his home town of Zwedru in March 2011 and built an eight classroom elementary school in 46 days using only hand tools! This was no small feat and was only accomplished through the favor of God and hard work from community volunteers. The people there were so eager to have a school, they worked diligently eight to eleven hours a day, six days a week, for only a meal and a very small stipend for their payment. Watch our video to see how this was possible under “Building the School’ drop down tab.


We thank you for your contributions that made this school a reality. May the Lord greatly enrich you for your kindness!

Building capacity through Christian education empowers people to move from paternalism to partnerships, enabling them to have opportunities to develop their God given gifts and skills.
