"New Hope for a New Generation"
Message from the Founder
On behalf of my family, AIEM staff, the children and the communities we are serving and myself, I would like to take this time to extend my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all of our friends, partners and supporters who have faithfully stood by us from the very beginning of AIEM ministries until now with prayers, materials and financial donations in helping to bring AIEM's vision for impoverished communities, lessfortunate, underserved children and orphans in Liberia, to reality.
Founded in 1820 as a haven for freed American slaves, Liberia quickly became one of Africa's most successful and beautiful countries. But years of civil unrest and war have led to the destruction of the economic, educational and spiritual infrastructure of the country. Currently, Liberians live on the edge of existence and need our immediate help. Tens of thousands have died, many thousands are orphaned and an entire generation has been denied basic educational benefits and healthcare services. Tremendous opportunity rises out of desperate need. Africa Indigenous Evangelical Missions is involved in rescuing widows, teenagers in crisis pregnancies, orphans, street children and adults by providing schools, medical clinics, training hospitals, orphanages, vocational and technical training education in Liberia. Our goal is to train the next generation of business, political and religious leaders.
It is said, “I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, Let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.” Once again, thank you so much for considering joining God where He is at work. May the Lord richly bless you.
Sincerely in His service,
Rev. Matthew Targen Sakeuh, Th.D.

"So each generation can set its hope anew of God."
Psalms 78:7a NLT
The history of AIEM is wrapped tightly around Matthew Sakeuh, a native Liberian who grew up in Duoplay, Nimba County, eastern Liberia. Matthew's faith in Jesus Christ has guided him through wartime trauma: exile of his family from native Liberia, the murders of two older brothers at the hands of a relative who was serving as a rebel commander, seven year spent as a refugee in the Ivory-Cost and years struggling to emigrate to the United States.
For the past fourteen years he and his wife Plenseh, along with their children have resided in the United States. Having obtained a doctorate of theology, Reverend Sakeuh is now preparing to return to Liberia as national director of Africa Indigenous Evangelical Missions.
