Seven Graduates Pursue Vocational College | An Update from Liberia

High-school graduates in Liberia gather for a photo after their commencement ceremony.

Seven incredible students graduated

from high school at Lifesong Christian Academy and Jones Christian Academy in Liberia this year. Each of them came to Lifesong as small children and babies; now, they are young adults eager to make a difference in the world. These students faced many challenges, from poverty to neglect, hunger, rejection, Ebola, and COVID-19.

Graduation, in the midst of all they’ve endured, is an impressive accomplishment.

And they continue to pursue new skills that will help them in their careers at Lifesong Vocational College.

We congratulate Alex, Andrew, Blessings, Emmanuel, Jeremiah, Peter, and Princess.

Alex plans to become an electrician. He is currently enrolled at Lifesong Vocational College.

Andrew also attends Lifesong Vocational College, where he is learning to become an electrician. He shares that he “found his family” at Lifesong.

Blessings wants to become a fashion designer and a nurse. She is studying tailoring at Lifesong Vocational College.

Emmanuel is studying information technology. He shares—

“My life would never have amounted to anything if God hadn’t given me the opportunity to come to Lifesong and be loved.”

Peter graduates in Liberia.

Jeremiah is studying electricity at Lifesong Vocational College. He also plays organ and sings in the church choir. His goal is to become both an electrician and a pastor.

Peter plans to attend Lifesong Vocational College to learn how to run a business.

Princess was the president of student council at Lifesong Christian Academy. She aims to become a fashion designer and is currently studying tailoring at Lifesong Vocational College.

Princess receives her diploma from Emmanuel, the Program Director.

A Time of Reflection

Emmanuel, the Program Director in Liberia, says—

Graduation is a time of reflection for us here at Lifesong to see how faithful the Lord has been to us and how He brings beauty out of ashes and hope out of hopelessness.

Above all, our team in Liberia is rejoicing that these students are living as confident individuals who have made a commitment to follow Jesus and to help others follow Him too, no matter where life takes them.
