Nations join together to help Liberians debt load!
In February 2007, the United States cancelled nearly $400 million in debt for Liberia. Today, the International Monetary Fund began the process to cancel Liberia's debt. This will have a HUGE impact for Liberia. The country of Liberia was hard hit by the wars that ended in 2004. We have been privileged to be here and see for ourselves the incredible spirit of the Liberians to seek to bring their country back to what elder Liberians remember prior to the wars. It is a slow process, but it is happening. Roads are being improved, the port is getting busier. There are now a few street lights and a couple traffic lights in the capital city. We will be coming back here in 2008 and we are looking forward to more improvement and watching first hand the progress made by nations helping and the Liberians hard work and prayers answered!
