Finding God in Liberia


Just arrived home from almost three weeks in West Africa. The homeward journey took over 40 hours.

The internet was either down or sloooow in Liberia, something about a lightening strike.

I'm a news and email junkie. Ever since 9/11 I wake up in the morning and wonder, Is the world still there? Then I go and check the papers online, and get drawn into reading emails, and that leads to work.

Liberia breathed life into my relationship with God. I slowed down. No internet fix to begin each day. I walked, I prayed, I studied the Scriptures. No TV to distract me at night. I even read some Charles Dickens.

Now I'm back in Oz, online, checking email, and writing this blog post . . . oops.
