In an effort to promote hygiene activities, the Association of Evangelicals of Liberia (AEL) has ended a hygiene football and kickball tournament among schools in Zota District, Bong County.Some of the participating schools of the tournament included the Warta Public School, Yorwee Public School, Immanuel Lutheran Global Village School, and Kollieta Public School, among others.
Prior to the start of the tournament, AEL Program Director Francis Maxwell told residents of the area to keep their surroundings clean in an effort to live safe and healthier lives.Mr. Maxwell stated that his passion to ensure the improvement of the Zota citizens cannot be downplayed on grounds that he is passionate about working to ensure that residents of the area live healthier lives.
Being a Christianity organization, AEL organized the tournament under a very peaceful atmosphere that led some of the spectators calling on the organization to extend such activity to other parts of the County.Immanuel Lutheran Global Village became victorious in the kickball games and at the same time collected the football trophy in a penalty shootout at the GorpuDolo Boi elementary and Junior High School football field in Belifina, Zota District.
After the final, some citizens of the region extended commendations to AEL for the conduct of the tournament.AEL is the largest network of churches and agencies of Evangelical persuasion in Liberia responding to human needs with spiritual guidance, compassion and practical care.
Its vision is a Liberian Church that is faithful to God’s calling to love as Christ loves – evidenced by its practical, holistic and compassionate response to human need.
AEL’s ministry is guided by four organizational core values which includes Godly compassion, Biblical integrity, sacrificial stewardship, and servant leadership.The Christian organization is being supported by Mission Alliance, a Norwegian based organization.
