Liberia: A visit with the Gbarnga Mission

January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Liberia suffered through 14-years of civil war that ended in 2003. As a result, 47% of the current population are children – only 1 in 3 are enrolled in school. The Gbarnga Mission worked with Liberians and broke ground for a rural school nearly 6 years ago. Jon Rossman, president of the mission, his wife, Kathy (a nurse), and Marsha Wilcox (photographer and epidemiologist) traveled to Liberia in February returning just before travel became impossible due to the pandemic. Jon, Kathy, and Marsha will share photographs and stories about their recent visit to Liberia, Deanville (village closest to the school), the school, and all that goes on there. They will also share a short video showing a day in the life of one student, a 15-year-old girl. Please join us!
