President Bush in Liberia


For those of you who don't know, President Bush made a stop in Liberia today on the last day of his five-nation tour of Africa. This will make Bush the first U.S. leader to visit Liberia in 30 years....so you go Mr. Bush! Before today, there were alot of rumors flying about internet and cell phone services disappearing for the day--for security reasons....and so far today, my usual Liberian contacts have been silent. So, either the rumors were true, or they're just not talking today. I can only imagine how chaotic Monrovia was today; it was basically like a national holiday for the people beacuse of road/school closures, heavy traffic, high security, etc. If you're interested in reading some news articles on Bush's visit, here ya go:







[It appears that Mr. President enjoyed himself in Liberia. Someone should have showed him how to whop so he didn't look so ridiculous!]

God bless your heart. I shall pray for the protection of all the people and shephards in Liberia. I've been trying to keep up with news over there, but CNN does not do such a fine job. I needed to make sure my link was working for one of their articles, and this is how found you. Thank you so much! God bless your family, your sheep, and you.
