When I returned to Liberia in 2010, I found a coconut tree, cut down for dead. But there was a REMNANT ROOT still connected to nourishment. It continued to reach to the heavens. I saw this reality many times in the lives of my brothers and sisters as they shared near death stories of how God preserved their lives through war. The 14 year old civil war and the Ebola epidemic is over, but the effects have broken the people and landscape of my homeland.

Thank YOU for joining me in this adventure of a lifetime! I thank the Lord for the opportunity to return HOME to my beloved Liberia and share the goodness of the Lord with my people.

"Lord, I have heard the news about You, I am amazed at what You have done. Lord do great things once again in our time; make those things happen again in our own time." Habakkuk 3:2

The Opportunity

Using artistic means of communicating and working through pain to raise up a new generation of Christian Leaders in Liberia. Schools (teachers and Head Masters, Bible Schools), Orphanages, Clinics/hospitals; Child Soldier Safe Homes (Hannah Project), Women and Leadership Conferences; Youth Rallies; Working with local NGOs and Pastors; Visiting slums and villages; and others.

The Challenges

As MKs we will be dedicating the new guest house to three MKs who died recently, Dan Snyder, Nancy Ackley and Joy, my younger sister.
