My name is Pastor Samuel D. Gonkarnue. I live in Liberia and I was one of the beneficiaries of CSM books distribution project implemented by Give Them Aid organization in Liberia. I am 56 years old and have 15 years of ministry experience. Since the Lord called me into preaching and teaching rural ministries, this is my first time to received books and Bible related and research materials. The materials received from Give Them Aid are greatly contributing to my life and the lives of my church members both physically and spiritually.
I planned to abandon my hone due to family stress, but there is a book in title, “Israel My Glory.” I give praise to the family of CSM, since I began to read and apply this book chapter by chapter, I life has changed. In other words, I no longer plan against my family by the help of this book through the Holy Spirit.”

“Hi CSM family,
Liberia went under 14 years of civil war that led thousands of us to run in exile into the neighboring Countries for safety. The war affected the health department death and education every aspect of live. Our children attend health centers to learn about health, but no materials for research. We are thankful to God for your health materials; they are using some of those materials research. Our clinic, staff, and other relatives who are in health activities are greatly impacted with the health materials. They use those for personal research to help them get advance for saving lives. Great work done for us, may the Lord bless you. “
