Mercy Ships -v- Ministry of Youth & Sports

This afternoon, thirty of the ship's crew including Noah and I travelled to the SKD Stadium outside Monrovia to watch the Mercy Ships football team play the Ministry of Youth and Sport's team (who are semi-professionals, I reckon, and included the Liberian National Team's German coach). The stadium is in magnificent condition after it's recent refurbishment by the Chinese...

...and even has fire-ant free grass!

Our team played well during the first half, and the game was nil-nil at half time. Sadly, the Ministry of Youth & Sports scored three goals during the second half.

It was a great afternoon out anyway. Olly
