Hope for Sierra Leone is a Transformation Canada ministry dedicated to giving hope to the people of Sierra Leone.  We empower them towards sustainability by helping with their felt needs.  It started by helping with their felt need of agriculture.  We worked with local farms and communities to create a sustainable farming process, primarily for poultry.  We then turned our attention to the Ebola crisis and helped offer aid relief, training and expertise to help curb the spread of the virus.

Now we work with a newly launched organization called Transformation Sierra Leone, which teaches biblical, transforming principles that can be applied to a variety of tangible needs.

Where do I find real peace?

by Dr. Conrad Van Dijk We can all agree that the people of the world today are desperately searching for peace.  The people of Sierra Leone are no different.  At our meeting with the traders union, a man stood up and said something profound about peace.  It caused tension in the packed room.  The man wasn’t talking peace in his nation; he was talking about peace in his heart, and it was lacking. I had…

A mustard seed of hope

What is hope? I found the answer lying on my bed, long into my recovery process from a terrible car accident that caused me serious injury and ended the life of my wife Anna. I had a choice, and that’s when I realized what hope is. Hope is a choice. If I have faith in God’s love, it gives me hope, and hope can lift, encourage, and put a man’s feet back on the floor to stand up and take another step forward in the strength He freely gives to us, if we’ll receive it.

The story of transformation in Sierra Leone

Both Anna and Conrad had a spirit of mission and adventure; now they needed a direction. During March Break that year they…

Transformation comes to Rogbangba

We are so thankful to God that the Transformation Sierra Leone team was able to make a breakthrough into the Rogbangba community.  Rogbangba was a Muslim-dominated community about 20 km east of the capital of Freetown, Sierra Leone.  In 2015, it had only one church and about 20 mosques, one school, no water facility, and no hydro.  Rogbangba was also strongly influenced by occultism.  There was evidence of witchcraft practice, and with little work for…
