Liberian Director of WACSN

My name is Francis Nyepon. I am the Liberian Director of WACSN. Over the past two years, I have volunteered my services to WACSN through the ingenuity of Maria’s father, the late counselor Lawrence Morgan, former Senator, Minister of Justice, and Chairman of the Ethics Committee of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Liberia.

I am a graduate of Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts and Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I am a Christian who has accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior who died for my sins and believes He will come again.

Prior to my coming to Liberia in 2003, I worked for the U.S. State Department and the Liberian Government, and have lived in the United States for 30 years. I am a policy analyst and environmentalist. I owned and operated DUCOR Waste Management in Liberia before giving that up to join WACSN as an unpaid volunteer in 2008. I have written numerous concept papers and policy documents for the World Bank, the European Commission and USAID. My organization received numerous grants from these institutions and entities to conduct environmental studies in sanitation, water, solid waste management, and hygiene. My residence is in Boston, where my wife and 2 daughters live, while a third daughter lives in Eden Prairie, Minnesota with Katarina and Nekita Luyken.

Current Events

15 October 2010

Baby Darling Grace is the daughter of Pastor David and Cecelia Dorbor. Pastor Dorbor chairs the WACSN Pastoral Network in Grand Bassa County, Liberia. Baby Darling Grace is a beautiful sweet girl who was born with some severe birth anomolies. The child was born with her major organs outside of her belly. In September, Vanderbilt Children Hospital in Nashville agreed to perform the life threatening surgery at no cost to WACSN or the parents.

Ginger Moore of ‘Speaking Thru Me Ministries’ in Tennessee lead a team of women to Liberia in July to conduct a ‘women’s workshop’ on behalf of the WACSN Pastoral Network and in association with the Lori Newman Ministries of North Carolina. During that visit, Maria pleaded with Ginger and her team to explore the possibilities of assisting WACSN by raising some funds so that Baby Darling Grace could be taken to Ghana for this medical procedure. Instead, Ginger labor tirelessly to encourage the hospital and doctors at Vanderbilt to perform the surgery, which the agreed to do. Ginger also got Delta Airlines to donate the tickets for the Dorbors to come to America for the surgery.

She is currently safely admitted to Vanderbuilt hospital with her family by her side in a Ronald McDonald House. She will undergo tests and evaluation to discern the extent of her problem and to formulate a plan to assure her recovery. Meanwhile efforts to strengthen her from her poor health condition to increase the odds of safe reovery.

WACSN is so blessed to be supported by and in partnership with such wonderful people. Without the efforts of Ginger and Speaking Thru Me Ministries, it is unclear if Baby Grace would have this opportunity for a return to health and the potential for a normal life. We are further indebted to Delta Airlines and their willingness to see the value in supporting such a wonderful humanitarian project. This is the type of thing WACSN and it's Pastoral Network would like to be able to provide for regularly. Many of the needs are not as dramatic as the reconstructive surgery Baby Grace and the Dorbor family is facing. However, God's provision in a need such as this should build confidence and faith that His hand is in Liberian through the relationships Americans continue to foster with WACSN.
