Heart for Africa

To date through Heart for Africa Ministries Thomas has trained and ordained Seven (7) church planters and they are continuing to walk alongside the churches they have planted to see a movement of multiplying disciples. Presently there are six (6) churches planted in Liberia, West Africa.

Thomas Siafa has led several mission trips to Liberia in this ministry effort. While on these trips some time, Massah and Thomas provide medical
