We arrived in Liberia!

We arrived in Liberia on Wednesday evening, September 16th. We are staying with our friend Nyamah at the UMC Compound.  We will be in Monrovia for a few days making connections, purchasing supplies, and preparing for life at the Camphor Mission.  Excited to get started!

It is the middle of the rainy season and a bit cooler temperatures, still in the 80's though. Every time we arrive in Liberia we see changes and progress from the last time we were here.  There are street lights being powered by the government, the trash is picked up, and it smells better. As Danny says, "It doesn't smell so much like a litter box now!"  The airport scene and collecting bags was wild and chaotic.  So many people everywhere!  But that just makes us laugh and smile. The business means people are coming here which is a great thing, expats want to come and help and more West Africans have resources enough to spend on travel.  The scene is so very different from an airport in America, you just have to smile and enjoy!
