Today we woke up ready to go and visit just a few of the many churched that they have been planting here in Liberia. We travelled in two cars. In the first car, Mike got to hear many jaw dropping stories of the local leaders like Ebenezer Brown. Who was captured by rebels during the war and had an amazing testimony of God grace. In the second car, the rest of the group got to hear the story of Konah Yormie, the youth leader of CCM. Who was only eight when the civil war was ragging and had to run ten miles back to his home when his classroom was turned into a war zone. After the long ride of hearing the awe-inspiring stories, we arrived at Believers Community Church. The people there were very excited to meet us. We worshipped and prayed with them, then continued to more churched where we prayed with them.
We then visited New Hope Community Church, a church located in the middle of three villages. After that we got to see Nyean Community Church. Then we went to Bong Mine Community Church, where a generator had been carried for five hours to give power each Sunday. All of us were very excited to see a monkey but we were told the next monkey we would see would be in a pot. We were then ecstatic to see two monkeys that were kept as pets. Next, we travelled to Compound Community Church, a church that was in the process of being built out of mud bricks. The last church we visited, Pillar of Faith Community Church, was building both a church and school.
We returned home to the guest house. We ate dinner together. We had a great fellowship when discussing our day and how we can bring their incredibly joyful attitude in spite of their circumstances. Then, we prayed.
