SPECIAL REPORT
FPC Missionary Assaulted and Robbed in Liberia

(Faith FPC is a broadcaster on SermonAudio.com and this report was provided by the FPCNA Mission Board for general distribution).

Dear Brethren

I am writing to inform you of a serious incident in Liberia in the early hours of Tuesday morning. At 3:15am Rev. David DiCanio was awakened by sounds coming from the kitchen and when he went to investigate he was confronted by two men with machetes who had entered the property through the kitchen window. Two more men were in the process of coming in the same way. They had ripped the steel bars from the windows. When David appeared they demanded money and stole a considerable amount of dollars from his double safe. They hit him with the blunt edge of the machetes, though he did not suffer serious physical injury. They also stole a number of David’s personal items. Before they left they forced David into a closet and demanded that he remain there. During the ordeal he felt he was going to lose his life. Once David was convinced that the men had left his house he immediately made his way across the compound to the building where Joanne Greer lives. She was not aware of the break in or of any of the trauma that had unfolded and was completely unharmed. David’s truck had been tampered with but they were able to drive out of the compound in Joanne’s vehicle and make their way to friends in the neighbourhood. The chief of police was called and arrived approximately an hour later with police officers.

The FPCNA Mission Board has been very conscious of the need for secure accommodation for our missionaries and has endeavoured to put as many safeguards as possible in place. The perimeter wall was completed on Monday though the gate was not yet secured. The Mission Board convened an emergency meeting via Skype on Tuesday afternoon. We were able to speak with David and unanimously passed various proposals to help our missionaries at this very trying time. We will reimburse David for the personal items that he has lost. These include his wallet and its contents, camera, laptop and passport. We have also approved to cover the cost of alternative accommodation in the short term for both of our missionaries. Furthermore we have approved the hiring of a reputable security firm for a period of time in order to secure the property and have permitted David to take immediate steps to proceed with other security measures as are appropriate including making payments to contractors at the bank and not on the property itself.

As a Mission Board we covet the prayers of the Lord’s people for David and Joanne. This is the first time anything of this nature has been experienced by them in Liberia and it is extremely distressing. Pray that God who is our refuge and strength will strengthen his servants and enable them to continue with the work that he has called them to.

Our building work in Liberia is not yet completed. The foundations of the second house are in place though there are great financial needs that must be met if it is to be completed. Please pray that these needs would be met soon. We may need in excess of $60,000.00US. This incident emphasises the need for very secure accommodation so please join us prayerfully and practically as we continue to press ahead with our missionary endeavour in this very needy land.

Maybe I will look into this organization and send them money. I am very careful with who I help because it's a rare thing that most of the money isn't taken by middlemen before reaching its final destination; advertising, paying employees, etc. I would want the money to go directly to securing this camp, but would it? I guess it's between the organization and God once they have it...

Mr. Christopher, first I want to say that I follow here and I enjoy learning along with you. You bring a nice element to the forum here.

These people are from our church. I have personally met Joann Greer and I can assure you that every dollar sent for this effort goes straight to where they say it does-the missionary compound. We have been collecting money at our church and it goes straight to them. Its very encouraging to see the video updates that they send to us of the work they are doing there and the souls beingsaved. Mr. Dave dicanio actually helped hand make the bricks used to build the compound there. These people are 100% legitimate. I'm thankful for your generosity in considering donating to them. Your donation will not be wasted!
I pray y

2 Corinthians 11
23 Are they servants of Christ? (I speak as if insane) I more so; in far more labors, in far more imprisonments, beaten times without number, often in danger of death.
24 Five times I received from the Jews thirty-nine lashes.
25 Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, a night and a day I have spent in the deep.
26 I have been on frequent journeys, in dangers from rivers, dangers from robbers, dangers from my countrymen, dangers from the Gentiles, dangers in the city, dangers in the wilderness, dangers on the sea, dangers among false brethren;
27 I have been in labor and hardship, through many sleepless nights, in hunger and thirst, often without food, in cold and exposure.
28 Apart from such external things, there is the daily pressure upon me of concern for all the churches.
29 Who is weak without my being weak? Who is led into sin without my intense concern?
30 If I have to boast, I will boast of what pertains to my weakness.---NASB

The true ones are rarely rewarded in this life, but they will immense treasures in heaven.

Poor dear brother DiCanio! I have prayed in the past for his ministry there, and that the Lord would keep him safe. Thank God he wasn't injured worse.

I will continue to pray, and will have our little congregation begin praying as well.

We must hold all our dear brethren up before the Throne of Grace in these times of increasing peril to the Gospel witness.
