This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Liberia's Vice President visits Africa Mercy

Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has commended Mercy Ships for the invaluable services it has rendered to the Liberian people over the past two years, and indicated that the Liberian government would do everything to get the ship back to Liberia. He said health is so essential in everything man does that words are inadequate for the Liberian people to thank Mercy Ships crew for their invaluable services to humanity, especially the people of Liberia. Vice President Boakai made the remarks on Friday during a visit to the floating hospital at the Freeport of Monrovia. The ship's crew held a forum to thank partners in Liberia and the Liberian government for their support of the Africa Mercy. The Vice President wondered how crew can afford to leave their loved ones to come and render services without taking credit for it, and lauded their commitment. Vice President Boakai said what Mercy Ships is doing should teach Liberians that "love and concern for one another is what gets the world going". allafrica.com
