Home for the Holidays!

This is a photo of our students traveling home to Monrovia for the four week Christmas break. They will travel for over 4 hours on a dusty, bumpy, hot, bad road. There are nineteen kids crammed in fighting for a spot on the truck. They were so excited. They will be singing the whole way home!

This is the site for the Judy Olin, UMVIM Guesthouse. Phase 1 is completed. We start brick making the week before Christmas. Things are moving along well with this project. Visitors will be sleeping here next year!
Kathy doing pay day the week before Christmas. With a donation from Peoria UMC and Mentor UMC we were able to pay September and October back pay. Not sure when we will pay November and December! The total salary payment for the 47 employees is $3700 a month. Most of the employees make $30-70 a month, with very few making more that $100. They are dedicated employees in spite of this. We are thankful to the people who helped to make this Christmas s
alary possible!Merry Christmas from the Camphor Mission Station in Liberia!
