It has been a longer time in the US than what we anticipated at first. But at last we got everything back together to return to Liberia for another term. Our passports came back from the Liberian embassy the very morning we left the US!
It has been a refreshing and encouraging time back home and if we would have stayed much longer, it would have been a lot more difficult to pack up once again and leave many friends behind. Yet we believe that God still wants us in Liberia among the Glarro people and so here we are.
We are in Monrovia right now, and I wanted to use this chance to write a short update. Once we get back to the village we won’t have internet for a while. So, don’t worry if you don’t get an email or text answered, we might still be alive 🙂 Anyway our main focus will be one more time on language learning and culture study. We appreciate your prayers toward that end.
Well, I am running out of stuff to write. I guess mostly because all the challenges and strangely funny stuff from living in Liberia have become normal to us. 🙂 But here is maybe one thing: When was the last time you saw more than 20 people making a dash for one empty Taxi? During rush hour, to get a ride with public transportation is nearly impossible, unless someone happens to get out of the Taxi exactly where you are waiting… (by the way I would say less than 5% of people over 20 years own a car)
